My legs were hugging the tank and I was tucked up close to the front to keep the buffeting off of my helmet. Not a whole lot of time to react, except scoot back on the seat.

Picked up the new ride today

nice ride.

Know the feeling. On a trip many mooooons ago me and my Jeep TJ nearly ended up same as you. Jeep moved a good 5 feet over laterally in seconds. Got blown by wind as I cleared an open space between two semi's on an east bound leg of interstate in OH in winter storm warnings. This was right after I saw a car get steered off into the median for some unknown reason at full speed after clearing front of same trucks . Im slow......just now I see they got pushed by wind same as I did
