Motorcycle Accident

So it's been a while since I've posted and I figured I would post an adventure I had about 8 months ago. I was following a dump truck with a lowboy trailer and a Bulldozer, going through some neighborhoods on my way back up to work. Following him doing 20-25 mph on my bike at an intersection I saw the cab of the dozer hit the power lines above and heard a loud crack (powerpole cracking) and saw the pole moving out of the corner of my eye. As this was very unexpected I slammed on the brakes and didn't put my foot down in time (@20mph I stopped QUICK!). I laid the bike down and rolled over my shoulder forward and landed on my feet. I took off running and looked back to watch the powerline flash and fall to the ground right where I had landed 15 seconds or so earlier. The bike is fine except for some scratches. I ended up getting $2300 from the insurance for the scratches. Anyways I'm fine now and thought you all would enjoy the close call story.

I've been hovering the site reading the posts, haven't had much time to post anything, but thanks for the welcome back =-)

"You are one lucky son-of-a-gun" - yea it's crazy how close we come to being fried (literally in my case) sometimes.
