This got long and it might be a 2 post day but I wanted to get this up. Especially after my sister texted me this morning asking if I was ok and reading why. Sometimes you have those rides where it seems like more than others that things are jumping out at you. The 2nd video contains one of my fears in small less dramatic form than what's in my head. Looking at the slowmo I probably didn't have to duck but it was reaction and seemed closer from up where my eyes were lol. I've always worried about some object launched from something flying at me like a tire or some crap and not being able to dodge it. The 2 other fears are having some issue with the front wheel that causes me to go head over tea cups, and getting rear ended. What's your biggest fear when you're out there?
The first video I had on story awhile back. I wanted to put it back up more permanent just in case maybe it helps someone someday. Never expect them to stop when they should. This one actually noticed and stopped late but had they not I would've been ok because I didn't blindly assume. It seems more this year than others a lot of our fellow bikers lately are being taken from us. Including one more fatality in Oxnard this morning (don't know who yet).
Keep in mind things can happen when you least expect it and in rapid succession at times. Try to keep planning an exit path as you ride, and ride like you're invisible because more often than not you are. Just try to ride cautiously, be vigilant, and stay safe out there all! 🏍✌😎
