Sh*t Happens

Well, it was fun while it lasted. 3 summers of touring....the Dragon, Great Lake Tour, East Coast trip featuring the Gaspe Peninsula and the Cabot Trail.....

They say most accidents happen close to home. Well, it was 27 C on Oct 25, she got home early from work and wanted to relieve some stress so took off by herself for a few hours. After an awesome ride, on a back street less than 5 min from home......this.

Yep, cager bad. Stopped at the sign then proceeded. She hit the brakes hard then cager stopped. She released the brakes to go around and.....cager went for it. With no time left to maneauver, she hit. Due to the violent turn of the handlebars on impact, she received a compressive fracture of her right wrist and whacked her head on the windscreen but didn't fall. Stunned, she let the bike fall underneath her. Since it was so warm out there were many dog walker witnesses and other bikers. A rider was on scene in a flash and happened to be a Fire Fighter. He immediately took control of the scene, walked her to the sidewalk and removed her gloves and jacket before the swelling made it impossible. The unknown rider picked up the bike, took the keys for her and made sure all her belongings made it into the ambulance. Emergency crews had appeared almost instantly and took her away. All things considered she was extremely lucky. She now sports fancy metal in her wrist, has lost her sense of smell and the leg burn from the exhaust has almost healed. Thank you unknown rider for your assistance.
