Fawk Skarrd! Brutal man, hope you're in one piece and they all still work. Gotta be more careful dude, "ride like your invisible" and watch out for slacker(women) drivers

Dammm... Another left turn incident, but reversed a bit.
Was a cel phone involved on the suv's part?
Anyways I am glad that you seem to be in good spirits about it all and are not in a hospital.

Kickass ccc!

Had the beater out with the trailer. Stopped at a light, cop pulls up beside me, she gave me a thumbs up! woo!

Got back, too nice out to not fire up the 29er. Gotta love the sound of a hopped up HT on a straight pipe. (only temp till SBP pipe) hour later, my ears are still ringing

not sure, but assuming from how it played out i imagine so. SUV had plenty enough time to stop, and even if they simply hit the brakes i would have gotten through ok.

i have a feeling what happened was she glanced at the light, saw it was yellow, speed up and didn't see i was turning.

I mean come on, i had a bright red car, kinda hard NOT to see it.

I have a "fire engine bright" red pickup truck. People miss seeing me all the time.
I even drive with the headlights on during the day now. I figure all the more ammunition against them in court if the day ever comes. Bright red and lit up. (no jokes about that, ok?)

soooo thankful man! i would be dead if it was the motor bike!

speaking of which, i got a handful of M6 x1.00 x 12 set screws for the drive pullies on the cvt. going to drill and tap both parts so it will hold it on the shaft stronger, than what little of the key way mates to the shaft.
