They are EVIL!! :evil: Well i got taken down on Friday night on kings way. car beside me swerved into my lane as we approached some traffic lights. Tried to swerve (left)..but as they came across, they clipped the front wheel..which immediately turned the wheel the other way and unceremoniously dumped me on the ground pinned under the bike. the bike landed fairly heavily on my right ankle which is now rather sore but fully operational. thank god(or other higher powers :grin: ) for the armour in my boots. right foot peg mount and bent and needs to be replaced...too much of a bend to straighted in Cast alloy. Gear stood up well..... no lasting marks on the draggins, IXON textile jacket doesn't even have a mark, boots coped a few scuff marks but still fine and helmet has a few more minor scratches... only thing i could have done with is torsional resistance in the boot... the armour saves me from breaking anything but getting pinned under the bike twisted a few things...it may not have helped but i'll be looking into new boots after a new lid. I'm not sure what else i could have done other than swerve....i was already braking due to the lights, and the ground was littered with those road snakes and while line markings. probably didn't help much be i think it was simply the hitting the front wheel which unloaded me. Oh and the driver did not follow the commandment below.....and simply drove off :evil: :evil: :evil: A pox on their house!
