Here I am cruisin down Grandview enjoyin my ride. Just a leisurely pace of about 50mph. I'm seriously enjoying the mid 90 degree weather we had, with clouds!, instead of 110. I'm in the middle lane on my way home on the left hand side of the lane. There's one person in the left lane and a person in the right lane leaving nobody in front of me. This guy/gal, didn't get a good look, just screams out of the parking lot to my right and pulls out right in front of all of us. The vehicles in both lanes to my side slam on the brakes at the same time as myself. The truck coming out of the parking lot chooses my lane......
I'm damn near sideways with my rear brake locked up. Of course, i can't let off the brake so i gotta try to ride it out. I have my handlebars cocked all the way to the right and i'm leanin as hard as i can on the right side trying to put the back tire somewhat back in line. It starts to swing back around and I look to my left so i can turn into that lane if it's clear once i get it straight. The dude in the truck to my left is staring straight at me like i'm about to die... I FEEL like i'm about to die. Luckily the truck that came out of the parking lot was picking up speed quickly or i think i wouldn't be typing this post right now. I get everything straightened up and my back tire gets to rollin again and the guy in the truck to my left pulls up next to me and checks on me. Of course, i let him know i'm ok, even though i'm screaming in my head at the a-hole that pulled out in front of us. I get a bit down the road and then i realize what actually happened. I screamed at the top of my lungs "WOOOOOOOO! I f***in did it!" fist pump and everything. I prolly looked like a fool, but i didn't care.
I get home and i hug my wife and kids and tell em i love em. I then go on to explain to my wife what happened. She got a little upset, but i'm home so it's ok. I'll remember what the truck looks like for later though
. I'm gonna... "talk to their truck for a minute". Kinda wish i had a GoPro to turn in the video.
Long story short. KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR THE OTHERS THAT DON'T HAVE THEIRS OPEN FOR YOU!
This could have gone a lot worse, but I got lucky today. I made it to ride another day! Have fun and roll on!
