south of the border, going 'bout 80 on an open desert road in the middle of absolutely nowhere.... glance to the left at an amazing sunrise and BOOM! feathers and blood everywhere. took a chicken to the chest. knocked the wind out of me, nailed my throat bad enough that i was spitting up blood for two days, chest black and blue like i was beat with a baseball bat, couple cracked ribs. from a fucking chicken, in the middle of the desert.

been hit by cars, run over by a crack head and had a heavily intoxicated off-duty officer swerve across 4 lanes and wipe me out... but the chicken was the most f'ed up.

Jammin in North or South Dakota at about 80 or so and a grouse, aka prairie chicken, came up and hit my left shoulder/chest area. Almost ripped me off bike as I had the throttle locked down and no hands on bars. If it wasn't for my bags making a backrest I'd of been knocked right off the scooter.

I got rear-ended by a chick on a bike during a group ride. I was at a stop sign. She was in 4th gear when she hit me - but doesn't remember a thing. I flew over the bars, slid down the pavement on the back of my head (hooray for helmet), had the bike tumble over the top of me. Luckily all I got was some rash on my ankle and top of my foot (ripped my shoe & sock right off) resulting in a nasty scar.

Almost forgot about that blond in a 72 Stingray Convertible back in 90 something I was looking at goin the other way on Lomita Blvd. Was the last thing I remembered from that day before someone cut me off and "so I'm told" flew over a car. Woke up the next day from the concussion and felt the missing teeth two hours late for work. Man I was wishing that was a bad dream! No such luck.

If you can whistle w/o gimping you ain't shit! Haaaaaaaa!

It wasnt super bad but on our first big ride of the summer hit a truck retread in the first 15 mins of the trip going about 90 on the freeway... No major damage... Scared the shit out of me, the doctor said most of my injuries were emotional.

I hit a White Tail Deer!! I was riding on a rural road a few miles from my house. The road is winding and follows a creek. I was just cresting the top of a hill and on the gas hard and a large doe jumped out of the woods. I noticed it was at full gallop out of the corner of my eye, the next thing I know is that I pile-drive the deer right in its ribcage with the front of my bike. The deer was hit by my front wheel and the triple trees. It split open and it was held together with only some skin and fur. I had deer guts, blood and the grass it was eating all over me and the bike. The rear quarter of the deer was draped over my shoulder like a fresh kill from a hunt. The head came around the other side of the front of the bike and smacked me in the face, fortunately I wear a full face and it split the lower face portion of my Arai helmet. I never went off road or went down so, I was able to collect my thoughts and get home. I never got off the bike until I pulled into my garage at home as I did know if I could walk or if anything was broken. There was blood everywhere and I did not know if it was mine or the deer’s. Fortunately the deer hit right at the fork stem and all the damage was sheet metal and a few bruises on me. I will live to ride another day.

1981 Cadillac Eldorado, T-Bone. low speed (40), superman mode, lotsa rolling. good leather jacket, fleece underwear top and bottom, heavy jeans fry boots, leather gloves, full face HJC Symax helmet. saved my face no doubt.

I got a 5 year break from riding 'cause of that idiot who 'Didn't see you.' also destroyed my poor gsf 1200 bandit. Man that was a fun bike.

Cant say Ive been hit...Run off the road a few times by cabs....and I t-boned a City Bus 3 days after finishing a bike back in 2001....The driver just pulled out into the Avenue, I never had a chance. I tried to dump it but wound up hitting it dead center. Oh Well.

I have been lucky, other than the occasional rock or stick,, nothing large.

BUT:

On my mountain bike, riding on the street in Florida, an Armadillo ran out and I ran over it with the fron tire, it flipped onto its back, got flipped back onto its feet by the sprocket and took off again. Thankfully I have a full suspension bike or I would have been on the ground.

I had to stop immediately because I was laughing so hard!

racing my dirt bike at the local track during a practice day, i hit a 50 double sitting on the seat. It bucked me over the bars like a raging bull. i stayed with the bike all the way until i hit the ground. landed hard on the front wheel,handlebars jerked out of my hands and broke my wrist. then straight to face with the bike hot on my tail. after the bike finished its top rope frog splash on my upper back and head i tried to get up only to get plowed by another more skilled rider than myself. once i got to the side of the track the ambulance came over to asses the damage and from what i remember the conversation went like this.

Paramedic: do you know where you're at?
ME: yah sandy valley
Paramedic: correct
Paramedic: how man fingers am i holding up?
ME: tuesday.

needless to say i was put on a gurney and woke up 5 hours later in a cast and a major fucking headache.

Ran up on a road gator (tire retread) about two years ago doing 85mph down the interstate. I swerved right on time and it pounded the bottom of my frame and one of my pipes. I rode it out and kept going. Talk about nearly needing to wipe the shit out of your drawers...

My summer mission was in June to ride my bike from Kansas City to Key West, Fl. which I acomplished and only hit two things on the trip. The first I don't know what the hell it was looked like a mangled coyote or dog roadkill but it was dark I couldn't do much about hitting it. It didn't do any damage but I was sure wishin I had a front fender that night. Style over functionality ofcourse but I got a faceful of the worst smellin shit ever. I had no bandana like a dumbass. It had probly been dead for a day or two. I almost vommited. I stopped at the next gat station and everyone looked at me w/ horror. I didn't realize it was that bad until I went into the restroom and realized I was splattered all over w/ blood. To say the least I called it a night and checked into a cheap motel to wash my clothes in the tub. I washed my bike the next day but I swear it smelt like death the rest of the trip. Later in Florida I hit some kind of lizard possibly a baby gator but no big deal. Hit a few small pieces of tire tread and wood before but nothin serious yet thank god.

Nailed an opossum coming back from a buddys house one night. Caught him just right to where he spun around a bit and gave myself a bit of a jump. After I stopped to make sure everything was good I turned around and seen the little ugly hop up and run out into the woods.

I wasnt really "hit" this time around but once I was 436 and a woman in a nice shiny white e46 bimmer merged after a turn and just barely kissed the side of my bike. She was on a cell phone of course so after a real nice smack to the window I finally got her attention and apparently scared her half to death. I got my revenge though, that bimmer had two very deep and very long scratches down the lengh of the door.

Theyre not exactly horrible situations but really the only ones worth any mention so far. knock on wood.

some idiot i was behind forgot to tie down his two surfboards to the the roof of his suv on the pch. i came up to him going about 80 and was about to pass when they BOTH flew off and one went around each side of me. i deflected the one on my left with my arm while the one on my right went straight into the minivan that was beside me.
ive also been hit in the knee by a bird on the 405 and two different women by their cars. (one that i ended up dating) ive also been rear-ended on two different occasions at stop lights with no major damage.

I haven't had any thing real bad happen yet, But I had went on a camping trip with a bunch of friends. I had forgotten to take off the old two stripe goodyear on the back before I had left. Was on my way home the next day and hit a small sliver of metal and it sliced the hell out of my beutiful vintage tire.
My old man got taken out when I was a kid. He was behind a mini van with a turtle carrier on the top of it. The carrier came loose, knocked the front end of the bike out from under him and he slid on his back and leg 180 or so feet. Still has some pretty wicked scaring.

Had a hornet zip in between my helmet and my face. Never got stung, but I nearly dumped it trying to get the bike stopped. I also ran over what used to be a deer one night. It looked like 200 pounds of burger in the middle of I-295, and I rode over it. No damage, but the meat that hit the pipes smelled horrid! Took quite a while to scrape off baked on chunks of meat.

I hit a dip in the road coming out of MD into VA when I was going onto the Woodrow Wilson bridge that sent me about two feet off my seat. The only thing touching the bike was my hands on the handlebars. The bike was going all over the place, but I pulled it together and kept gettin it. The worst part was that I didn't see it coming so I wasn't really ready... luckily I didn't end up sliding down the pavement at 75-80mph, but it did scare the shit out of me.

Also, on the way to rolling thunder I was about 20 yards from hitting a black bear that ran accross the road in front of me. I think my pipes scared him cause he was hauling ass! Wouldn't have been pretty though...

Ice, guess that it was UNDER me, but I tried riding too far into the winter, didnt pay enought attention to the weather report, and found out the hard way. Drove about 100 yards, tried to make a slight left and just slid, slid, slid about 50 yards with my left foot stuck between the bars and the tank. Fun times ... now I def pay attention to cold Maryland mornings

The two worst things to hit me:

When I was 12 years old, I got hit by a VW bug as I was riding my bicycle. The car sideswiped me at about 40 MPH. I got REALLY lucky. No broken bones or anything.

When I was 37 years old, a friend's '50 Ford coupe fell on me while I was fitting up a new trans mount. I was laying on my side when it happened, so the impact forced my shoulders together across my chest. I felt a lot of pops down my sternum as it happened. Again, no broken bones, but I still have some residual pain from it. I couldn't get out of bed on my own for about a week, and it was a month before could actually work on anything.

The worst thing I ever hit was the ground.

Bimbo In Silver civic. I was zipping through a parking lot to catch up with some buds and this chick backed acrossed the aisle going way faster than she should have and broadsided me. I was laying under my bike and she said "oh shit" and burned out of there.

I hit a huge landscaping rock on an old honda and a pile of old telephone poles on a dirt bike.

Yeah, that was bad. The worst was the next day when Stephanie left for work at 7:00, and told me that she'd call me around 11:30 to see if I needed anything. Of course, 5 minutes after she leaves, I have to take a leak. I COULDN'T GET OUT OF BED. I had to hold it until she came back. That was just godawful. All that, and it hurt to breathe, too.

Riding through Pasadena I hit what seemed like a speed bump on the gd freeway. Scared the shit out of me.

Hit a parked car on my bycicle when I was younger, guy was washing it. I slide right up his hood.

Then was riding my bicycle to my friends house once and had a towel on my handlebars cuz I was gonna go swimming. Towel slipped into the front wheel, good night.

Ran my own self over trying to pop-start my car when the starter died. Thankfully, it was a light car as it ran over my arm, my leg and my hand. To add insult to injury (literally), it coasted into the front of a parked car and smashed up my already beat exhaust.

Thanks, homie.

Me and Jai almost got nailed by a drunk on Saturday night on the 210 near Montrose. We were on our way to help our friend Max out with his Shovel, and this guy in a GIANT 4x4 comes barreling across three lanes of traffic like he's gonna get off the freeway. NOPE!! He changes his mind, and starts driving on the shoulder.

While he was "thinking" about getting off, me and Jai get past him. Unfortunately, Jai doesn't have any mirrors, so he can't see that the guy hasn't gotten off the freeway, and also doesn't realize that I've gotten a couple of lanes over to get away from this guy, AND also doesn't realize that the drunk is only about 10 feet from his rear wheel. All I can think is that if this guy kills my friend, I'm somehow going to get into the bed of this guy's truck, break into the cab., snap his neck, and then eat his eyes.

Luckily, there was a semi in the slow lane, so Jai gets into my lane, we go around the semi, placing the semi between us and the Pabst 4x4. We got off the freeway, as we missed our exit during all of that anyway. I think we dodged a LOT of bullets that night.

Yes, we got the Shovel straightened out, and had a night that was relatively uneventful after that.

3 or 4 day old road kill, in the middle of summer... about 80 degrees out. Some douche in a Hummer just had to pass me, and ran right over it, well it exploded and sprayed me right in the face, surprised as shit, I ran right over it and the front tire sprayed me in the face, chin, under my glasses, on the mouth, and covered my bike with it... all i smelled was that shit burning off the motor and the pipes.

Big Nick can back this up, I was on the way to his house when it happened. As soon as I got there I was begging him for a rag and a hose!

When I was about 6, I was at a church potluck, and got tangled up in an old ladys skirt, and tripped her... she landed square on my head. She was tall as she was wide... I think I had a concussion. That was the worst. Ever.

A little more on topic... a buddy kicked up a rattlesnake that hit me in the chest, only the back half of the snake. He's got one coming for that... ran through a half mile of beehives, late summer... on a narrow country road. Got stung about 12-15 times... allergic to the little fuckers now. Ate an unidentified bug at speed, looked like a bat, and I must have tried to say "Oh Shit" or something stupid. Nothing but net. Really gooey, big as a bowling ball going down. Cut my throat or something, couldnt talk for a week. If I had to guess, I would imagine balls taste like that bug. Nothing nice.

09-16-2009, 7:12 PM
Oildevil, you didnt need to swallow that Bug now did You, Well I guess a Man's gotta have
nutrition while on the road eh.

Me? Havn't really hit anything substantial (knocking on wood). just bugs mostly.
But check this OUT.....

I got an email a couple of days ago from an old buddy, & He sent Me a photo of a pretty good sized
Diamond Back Rattler (easily 5+ feet long) chunky too. He was rounding a corner
on a so cal canyon road & came upon the Big Boy. He braked, & swerved,
But the Fat Rattler made a strike at the Shovelhead, & missed His leg
by mere inches, & ended up going into the open Primary drive!
After screeching to a halt, He then got out to check on the injured Reptile, that aparently had the end of It's
Jaw crushed as It went through one of the pulleys.
He decided to finish the job & put the snake out of It's misery, & to prevent It from dieing a slow death of
starvation from the jacked up Jaw.

I have seen snakes before on the road, but always small passive ones that are usually near the shoulder
out of harms way.

Being a TShirt holding member of the Fisters MC.. I really couldnt spit out a balls-tasting bug, could I? C'mon man, dont put me out on front street like that... I got a reputation. :) The rattlesnake thing is spooky, on the road, or when you see em flying at you at about 45mph... they're scary. Even the ass end of a rattlesanke will bite you 5 or 6 times before you can get pulled over and realize a snakes ass doesnt have fangs. My partner is a dickhead. He pissed his pants a little laughing at me, and tells the story every chance he gets.

I hit and killed a deer about 2 months after I bought my bike new. I saw it off to the right side about to jump out, of course my lighting fast reflexes locked up the brakes...the rear tire started to skid out so I let off the brake and said fuck it while I grabbed a handful to throttle up right as I broad sided the beast.
I never heard a whimper as I started to slow down its lifeless body draped across my front end. Finally she flopped off into the oncoming lane. I slowed to a hault and my bike felt like the bars were bent...nah, just both fork legs. I rolled a u-turn and pulled along side the carcass, it was dead with small hole ripped open its side. I looked down and I had blood and guts all over my pants, boots and bike. I rode home to grab my truck, by the time I made it back it was gone.

2001 honda crv. she 10 miles an hour, me 45-50 miles an hour. luckily she was taking off instead of slowing down. did a bmx endo on her rear bumper, nuted my tank, break danced over the bars to a killer 50 ft backslide down the road. 23 years of skateboarding taught me how to fall the best possible way. luckily, i didnt hit my head, wasnt wearing a helmet either...just leather gloves and a denim jacket. i was conscious the entire time and remember it all in slow motion detail. like the broken glass from my headlight floating in front of me after it blasted the rear mounted tire on her truck and the sound of my bike chasing me while sliding down the road. she stopped 100 yards down the road, walked back to me and started balling. she was 60 and her husband was killed in a bike accident a few years prior. she said when i hit her, she heard it and looked in her rear view mirror and just saw my body falling from the sky. she had no idea where i came from. i wasnt hurt too bad. bloody nuts, sprained wrist, some road rash on my hip and elbow. first cop to show up was on a bike too and simply wrote her a ticket basically no questions asked. fork tubes were bent pretty bad, the tank had a few nice dents from my nuts and bars... other than that, no issues... still dont wear a helmet... me idiot.

Sad thing is, I giggled all the way through reading your post. Been there, and can remember similar things.... the slow mo.... the backslide. The crying lady bike killer.... HA haha.... yep. Seperate but oh so similar circumstances, and occasions. My own private Idaho - is remembering in vivid detail, a brilliant mind searing image of the tag inside my Biltwell helmet.

The disclaimer that reads (paraphrased)

You are about to retard yourself, have a nice day!

It was burned into my mind in the time between hitting a car and doing a headplant. Priceless. You made my day. Sorry about your nuts.

Uninsured 19 year old driving under the influence. He hooked across 5 lanes of traffic and plowed me into a wall on 1st & 23rd in midtown Manhattan. I spent 5 months in Belleview Hospital. Part of which I was in a medically induced coma in the ICU. Internal bleeding, broken leg, destroyed the discs between my c-3,4 and 5 (which were fractured) as well as t-7, 8,9 and 10 vertebrae. Thank god a cop witnessed the entire thing.

Thanks! Me too!!! I'm very grateful to be vertical.

I need to take lots of breaks when I'm working on a bike and don't work for hours and hours like I used to. My spine also likes to remind me it's there whenever I go flat track racing. I usually spend the following day after a race in bed self medicating with a bottle of Scotch and my dog. We all make our choices and I choose to keep doing what I love and keep riding.

A deer jumped off a steep embankment and hit the side of my SV650 when I crested a hill from sunshine to shadow. I didn't know what hit me. I tumbled and got drug by the bike into a ditch. luckily I was wearing my racing jacket, full face and Carharts. The bike was beat up, buit we both rode home. I remember reading in the Keith Code book about wrecking and that when yu think you have stopped you need to count to ten before moving because people trying to stand up while they are skidding is what causes people to break bones as they tumble. I was laying in the ditch counting to ten staring at the sky and I heard a group of guys who had been behind me discussing rather I am dead or not. It was the beginning of Deer season and I had seen Deliverance when I was a kid, I stood right up!

I hit a 2x4 block square on my helmet, right on the area where my forehead is. I saw it fall off a construction truck and bouce along, I tried avoiding it but it bounced up and hit me square. It sounded like a gun shot when it hit and put a huge dent in my helmet. It felt ike someone swung a ball bat at me. I had to throw the helmet away.

I was hot by a lady wh run a redlight at a Y intersection in her BMW convertible, I knocked her mirror off with my foot. I kept the bike up and pulled over. She kept right on going.

I was hit by a group of Stoners in Horizon in heavy commuter trafiic. They were doing a quick U turn right into me, I skidded my Sportster to the ground and was standing on the side of it when we came to a halt...they kept going, but a guy in a truck chased them down and had the police arrest them. The bike had a few scratches on it and my boots got burnt from the pipes, shaken, but stirred.

It's Corn bug season now...I am being pelted with corn bugs...

I almost hit a couch that had fallen off a truck.


I have ran over more crap on the highway than I can remember, road kill is slippery and smells, (I have a friend who will kick it with his boot if he is front of you,) I am a firm believer in mid-mounts for teh sole reason of being able to get my ass off teh seat and stand up dirt bike style when I have to pop over a chunk of whatever is in the road.

Man some of these stories are pretty brutal, mine aren't nearly as bad. I've had a sorority chic rear end me at a light in her land cruiser, smashed my fender but no harm done to me. I had a truck run me off the road one afternoon on a narrow two lane going down a hill which resulted in a concusion. All I remember after that is waking up in hospital with my buddies telling the nurse on duty they thought I needed a catheter, needless to say I spoke up very quickly that I was doing just fine.

Bugs and retread suck a lot. I hit a big piece of retread outside of little rock last summer that threw me a good 2 feet in the air going about 90. That was some scary shit.

Heres one.... also a good tip for anyone riding Hwy 198 in California.

Headed over to King City to play a show one evening with my wife on the back. Up on top of Mustang Grade the San Andreas fault runs across the road. Somebody had pulled out the rough road sign, and Id been across that hill a couple days before..... came around a hard left and saw a 6" curb in the middle of the road. It had shifted that much. Got slowed down to about 40 before I hit it, and between braking and jumping the curb almost slingshot my wife over the handlebars.... I kinda caught her coming over my left shoulder, and we really just got lucky. Forgot about that one.... took an oilpan out going over that years ago in a lowered 59 Impala also..... That stretch of road needs constant maintainence. Im aware of it now, but if you dont know its there... oh shit.

Back in 99 I was rolling a yard sale cb125 while I waited for my brandy new Sporty to come in. Tried to beat a yellow light left turn one day, slipped out on the bald-ass rear tire, slid, bounced over the curb, and came to an abrupt stop thanks to a big, green electrical transformer on the corner. Lost some skin on that one, nothin' major. Rode home, shaking like a leaf.

Few years later, on my second Sporty (first was stolen from my front yard), I was waiting at a red light when I got buttholed by some soccer mom in a Camry. Fucked my rear fender and tire, and bent my fork tubes and front wheel from being smashed into the Camry in front of me - dual Camry sandwich. Got my head into the rear glass of that car pretty good, but not enough to break it. I was fine, but had to limp it home. That's when I chopped that scoot up.

Fast forward a few more years. I'm rollin' that same Sporty, but all cut up. I spend 14 hours at the shop, gettin' her all re-jetted, tuned, freshened up and ready to jam after a long Utah winter. I hop on to roll home around 2am... and I'm drunk as shit after 14 hours of steady drinking. My fault for being a fuckin' idiot. Halfway home I decide that going home sounds boring and that I'd rather go bang some corners. So I do. As fast as I can. I clip a guardrail wide-open in 5th, everything goes black, and I wake up in some bushes in the middle of fuckin' nowhere. I can see my headlight shinin' a good ways down the road, so I wander around for a minute, find my shoes, find my phone, find my jacket (peeled right off me like a banana) and head over to the bike. I try to pick it up, and bam... I realize I'm fucked. My whole arm just drops. So I call and wake up my homie, ask him to come find me... he does, blah blah blah. Long story short, I broke my neck, shattered my shoulder blade into 4 pieces (3 breaks), broke my collarbone lengthwise, 3 broken ribs, broken wrist, and a broken ankle. I don't drink when I'm ridin' anymore.

Fast forward, again, a few more years... to 2 months ago. I'm on my way to Mt. Hood with some friends --- I'm rollin' my bagger. Get stuck behind a truck when the freeway narrows to a single lane... as soon as it opens up, I pin it and try to catch my homies. I remember lookin' down at the speedo while I was passing one of my boys, and I was around 112 and gaining... and then I pick up a speed wobble. Immediately it turns into a full-on tank slapper... I held on for damn near a mile, tryin' to straighten it out, but no dice... finally the front wheel hooks up when the speed is down to around 65-ish. I get tossed high-side and hit the freeway... I was fully conscious for this one. I remember feeling my weight floating up, looking at the front fairing as I floated over it, and just thinking "This is it." I hit the road the same way I do when I go down skating, shoulder first, realized I was still seeing the world, and just tried to keep my head off the road and my body from rolling. At some point while sliding I remember thinking "I'm runnin' out of meat", so I tried to switch sides... but I just caught and flipped a few times. Finally stopped sliding, sat up, and looked back up the road. My buddy was off his bike and runnin' over, and some truckers were scrambling up and down the sides of the freeway with fire extinguishers, puttin' out the fires my scoot had started while flipping down the road. That one resulted in a totaled bike, a broken shoulder blade, and a shit ton of road-rash... which left me a few tattoos shorter than what I left with.

Oh, yeah... I got hit by a bird once, too. Bluebird to the shoulder, probably goin' 85-ish. Almost forgot that one... that hurt.

A few weeks ago my girlfriend was in front of me on her bike. We were on this country fuck road at about 10pm. All of a sudden I saw the light from her headlight light up the trees ahead of her. She hit a big ass raccoon. She kept of trucking like nothing happened. When we got home I noticed some pieces and parts left over from the raccoon sticking to her bike.

A deer ran into the side of my Electra Glide while doing 60mph. I was able to keep the bike up, and the deer was tangled up in the rear tour pak and saddle bags. After dragging the deer several 100 feet I pulled over, removed the deer, checked out the bike and rode it 4 miles home. The deer hit so hard that it bent the frame, there was $11,600 damage to the bike and the insurance company totaled it. I didn't even get as much as a scratch on me.

Just happened day before halloween, and i was super ready for my first time having trick or treaters (call me lame) and goin to Ride to Skate.
Coming home at dusk on friday, a minivan pulled out in front of me from a T stop (I had the right of way) and all i know is I hit her and blacked out.
Broke my femur, luckily a clean break and didnt puncture the skin. And tore my shin open, 6" long and down to the bone. More bruises and pain to go with it, but it coulda been much worse. Thank You Daytona Helmets.
The usual case of looked right at me and pulled out anyway. P.S. Thank you Shock Trauma

This was just a close one but one for everyone to remember.I was riding back from up state N.Y late last May and was traveling in the passing lane.I saw two large John deere tractors w/big deck mowers cutting the side of the highway (same as a freeway for you westcoasters)I decided to get in the right lane for some reason and as I did the 1st mower spit out at like 80mph a twitsed up piece of rebar. Aprox.4-5 ft long into the middle of the passing lane the thing must of spun around 5-6 times before it stopped.Now that would definately have left a mark.Ride safe.ggm

On the subject of close calls. We were heading into Pismo when a spare camp stove fuel bottle broke free from its place on one of the bikes. One of those moments when time seems to slow down. Red bottle just rolling down the road in front of us. Ya just knew it was going to decide to split L or R at any moment. It didn't!

Then this morning gettin in the car pool lane of the 91 there is this fan shroud in the middle of the lane. Sun was just up enough that I didn't see it until I was passing it. Then on the way home I was splittin lanes and all of a sudden the car in front of the truck I had just barley passed swung out in front of me to avoid a big ass garbage bag in the middle of the road! Two seconds slower and the truck would of clipped me good when he saw the bag.

I was enjoying a lovely evening on the KZ1000 when something slammed into my collarbone? I figured it was a bird, didnt hurt really, got me just right. I reached down and to my surprise my hand came up with a bat. It looked surprised too so I released it post haste. I also am responsible for sending an unknown piece of hardware off my shovel into Toecutterp's chest at about 70. He was not pleased. Remember, predictable is preventable (a lot of the time) so when you see that lady in the minivan, and something inside tells you she is going to pull out, well, she probably is. Act accordingly. Sometimes shit does just happen though, and that may be part of what makes riding a motorcycle fun (surviving)

The result a month old R6 written off and $4000 worth of damage to a holden commodore quarter panel and rear caused by my back when i slammed in to it. Funny enough bike didnt hit car. I came out with a bad broken thumb and a couple of broken bones in my back. didnt know about my back till the following day. so went to hospital day of crash, got plastered up and went to the pub, to wake up hung over the following day to a phone call from the hospital saying i had better come back in.

Blastin down a swamp road behind my boy. He hit what i thought was a branch, it shot up in the air, landed in front of me, then i ran it over, slowed down and looked back and realized it was about a 4 foot black snake as it slivered off the road. I was first worried about it being a stick. Then after realizing it was a snake i got the chessy movie felling of this thing landing on me at 70+mph. Kinda freaked me out. We went back to look for it thinking it was dead and we had a cool trophy. No luck..

Ran over a fox coming home from the bar one night. Actualy it jumped out to bite me while I was inthe apex of a 40mph left. Front up and over no problems, rear not so much, got sucked up into the fender and locked me up. Nice little step off and a fast run into a roll and only a few scratches. Bent the shift arm on the way down, had to hold the clutch with my chin and reach down to get it into gear. Got home got the jeep and a L-ville slugger. Rocked a fox fur seat for a while.

1 awful one, one close one. 15 years old, riding to our jump spot on my Hoffman (BMX bike). Riding next to the railroad track sittin down. Hit some soft sand so I go to stand up and crank, but the seat was so low as I stood I pulled on the bars just wrong enough to wash out the front end mid-stand up. Fell right on my left nut on the top tube, with NO bar pads (it wasn't cool to have em). My nut swelled to the size of a grapefruit and was DARK black and blue for a month and a half or so. My buddies didn't believe me when I showed up, so I pulled down my fly and showed em the left one. For the next month, any where we went (Party, other friends house, anywhere) my friends made me show everyone my black and blue nuts. I also broke a bunch of bones racing BMX, but the worst was my tailbone, and not once, but 3 times.
2nd one was when I was 18, had a CBR600 rocket. Was cruising down River Road in Tucson. I was in the fast lane with a car in front of me, one behind me, and a old lady next to me in the slow lane. Just before Oracle Road, the old lady decides to get into the left turn lane, I was all the way over in the gutter, with my foot peg scraping the top of the curb, before I reached out and pounded on the window right by her face. She slammed on the brakes and ripped it to the right, loosing control and t-boneing the curb. I stopped to make sure she was ok, and she gets out yelling saying I came from no where (I was next to her in the same pattern of cars since before Stone for those familiar, about a mile for those who don't know the area). The guy behind me stopped and was trying to tell her she was wrong. She yelled and cursed at him too. Eventually her son came to the scene and apologized to me. It was right in front of my work (Audio Express) on my day off. Not even a week later while I was working in the install bay the same thing happened to some one else. Shattered tranny, old lady, crotch rocket and all.

One morning, very early, still dark, I ran over a hood from a '57 Chevy. Luckily it was pointed in the right direction. I have seen trucks loaded with junk cars headed for the shredder on several morning trips to work, so I figure that is where it came from. I stopped and emptied out my jeans, then went back and put the hood in the ditch. I saw my tire prints on the rusty hood. It was a pretty uneventful ride after that...... Scudder

not me but last summer going to the billitproof show everyone met up at my house. homeboy brought a chick over that has never been on a bike before. he was riding one of those new triumph cafe bikes, she was on the back.she was a little nervous. anyways he was following me pretty close when one of my pipes fell off flying right at him. he had to do some pretty abrasive manuvers to avoid it. i think the chick actually shit her pants.thats why you should always ride in front of the choppers cause shit might fall off. oh and one time a spider managed to find itself in my shirt bitting the fuck out of my back. going about 70 pointing at my back with my wife slapping me trying to kill whatever was biting me was a little interesting

well, I've been hit by locusts and they feel like bullets and make a mess. I got hit in the chin with a wasp and it got caught in my beard and stung the shit out of me repeatedly. I also got hit with the debris from some asshole dumping their ash tray out of their car window, I think that was worse than the wasp and locusts....

The worst things I ever ran over was a ground hog, and a brick. Not at the same time though.... Lol. The groundhog was kinda like a squishy speed bump. The brick on the other hand was a different story. I was riding this dudes ass cuz he was driving slow as shit in the fast lane, and of course there was a brick in the middle of the lane and I didn't see it cuz I was on that guys bumper. When I hit the brick I was doing about 55 miles an hour and my front wheel shot straight up in the air. There is nothing worse than an unintentional wheelie. Needless to say, I still have a flat spot in my front wheel, and I don't tailgate anymore.

Went down a few years ago taking an exit on I-35...hit the curb and ended up pinned under the right side of the bike. No one stopped, in fact, I had a truck load of guys almost run over my head trying to get around me and I could get enough leverage to get myself out. After a few minutes of rolling around and screaming obscenities, this lady that was probably in her 60's or 70's came over and was able to get the back end up enough that I could get out. Thank God for Centrim Silver and Wheaties.

My two getting hit, hitting something. First one was in 84, was on my gs750, had drag bars, 4-1 it was a 82 sold in 84 new in the crate. Anyway, nice little scoot, doing just the double nickel as I was entering Sacramento on hiway 50 and a cat in the left lane in a bomber cadillac 4 door fleetwood is screaming by at 75 or so and I'm seeing sparks under his car. I'm like wtf is that, exhaust, I check my mirrors, cages on each side so I'm kinda pinned in. I go back to deciding wtf it was sparking under his car. About the time I decided it was his driveshaft, the fucker lets loose, all sorts of smoke from the tranny fluid and I see in rotating across the highway. I'm like, oh fuck, oh fuck trying to calculate if I was gonna miss it, brake and might miss it, or I may center punch it and get my ass ran over. So I figured her goes nothing, I drop a gear and gas it. It comes into my lane, I just got far enough past it and it bumps my back tire on the way across the lane. It wobbles a bit but I'm ok. Cages behind me are swerving all over, no idea what happened back there. I got in the right lane, got off on J st and hit the AM/PM and grabbed a beer and shakily drank it reflecting on how close that was.

Second one, coming home from work in Woodland Ca. on the sporty taking the river road back home to W. Sacto and car in front of me kicks up a snake. It ticks my handlebar as it fly's past. I ain't afraid of snakes, but damn sure don't want one in my lap, particularly as around the river there's lots of rattlesnakes. Close one, but nothing huge.

Last one, not a miss. Just got down here in Phoenix after my divorce. I left my bro's house headed to my nieces coffee shop in Tempe, I normally wore a lid even though we don't require em down here. I went out of the house, said damn it forgot it, oh well just going a few miles (ain't that always the case when you actually have an accident). I'm in the right lane, lady stopped on my right at her intersection. I got the green, doing maybe 40 or less. When the dumb bitch does just what I don't need her to do. Pulls dead ass out in front of me. I remember coming into the intersection when she pulled out. I remember going no no no noooooooooo I pull on the both brakes but the front one hard. I then remember being wheeled through Scottsdale Osborne emergency room stiff board on my back and neck brace on . I'm like can't you take this off? Nope not until they do a MRI on your head. I wiggle all my fingers and toes so I know I didn't lose nothing. Can't see out of my left eye heads swollen up, hole in my chin where the bone poked through the skin, busted up a few teeth in my grill, major rash on my face, burns through my pants but they weren't cut by the road (EMT's did though) broken ribs on my left side. One night in the hospital for observation, nieces come to see me in emergency just after it happened crying. (Long story, but they're dad just had an accident and nearly died in a canyon on his springer 8 months earlier so they're out of theyre mind when they come see me).

Turns out the sporty took 3500 bucks to fix (inflated HD prices, probably way less than a grand actually damage), lady got ran down by a spectator and told hey you just knocked that dude off his motorcycle back there, she's like what? Motorcycle cop talks to me in emergency, he wrote her up (cool guy really for a cop) and held my license till I showed insurance (was licensed in CA at the time) which I had just couldn't find all dazed in ER. 3 years later my lawyer finally says look man they're only gonna go 25k or we go to trial. I wanted it to be over, so settle out. Lawyer got a third (no not a discount lawyer!), I got a third and dentist/hospital stole the rest.

I just remembered a near miss I had back in the late '80s. I was working at a foundry, working a 12 hour shift. Started at 5AM until 5PM. I woke up late and had to hurry, so I got on my '78 XS750 and headed to work. I had the throttle twisted around twice and was showing 118 on the speedo. {That's all it had} I was going thru this bottom with heavy woods on both sides. I was all laid out on the tank and was just peeking over the bars when this HUGE owl with about a 6 foot wingspan came into view and he was headed right at me. I ducked back down on the tank and I'm sure he pulled back hard on the joystick. We managed to miss each other and I relaxed on the throttle a little, but I had to clean out the jeans when I got to work. I think he probably had shit in his tail feathers too. That was too close for me..... Scudder

I was riding home from work one afternoon and started getting pelted by a bunch of bees. Turns out that I was following a truck hauling bee hives.

Also took a tumble on my bike when I was a kid. I was riding to school one day and I took a small jump off of a curb and the front wheel came off. (changed the tire tube the night before and forgot to tighten the nut) DOH!!!

Learning to ride on a friends enduro a few years ago. Flying down a dirt road and at the end you either go left or right. Well before I could even think to start slowing down a damn dog starts running out in front of the bike. I grabbed a fist full of lever and learned what a stoppie is. Flipped the bike bounced off the front wheel. Slid across the on coming road and in to a ditch. Then the bike hit me. So I was hit by my own bike.No helmet,wearing shorts and a t shirt. LOTS of road rash and burns from the bike, twisted ankle. I was more freaked out that my buddy seen me wreck his bike. So I got back on fired it up and rode it back like nothing happened. It was hard to play off the limp.

Closest miss: About 6 months ago I was on the freeway on my 05' VTX1300 on the way home from work, in the left of three lanes. All of a sudden, something shoots up about 50 ft. in the air off of a lumber rack on the bed of an old truck in the middle lane about 200 yds ahead of me. From my vantage point (200 yds away), with the sun setting at my back, reflecting off the object, it looked like a giant bird fluttering in the breeze. At 100 yds away it looked like the scene from 300 when the Spartans are watching the the Persian's thousands of archer's arrows flying at them (except I only saw a couple of them). At 50 yds (1.2 seconds at 85 mph) it looked like a bundle of about 4 or 5, 20 foot peices of crown molding had bounced off the truck, broken apart, caught in the wind, and were now shooting down toward me like giant wooden lawn darts. The first one hit 15 ft in front of me, second one hit 5 ft in front of me, third one hit about 6 inches to the right of my right footpeg and left splinters and debris all over me and my bike; a few of the splinter had enough force to stick in my skin like cactus needles. I went home and changed my drawers.

Hit: I was on my 85' Honda 250EX fourwheeler when I was 15 or so, leaving a buddies house, headed to the gravel pits to go hits some jumps. A friend (about 25 yds. behind) and myself were riding at about 40 mph along a narrow road along the top of the bank that runs along an irrigation canal. The canal is about 10 ft. deep from the top of the bank with about 6 ft. of water. There was a giant black lab that would chase us everytime we went down this road. He would run alongside, barking at our tires. This time, the dog ran right out in front of me. Due to an early concusion history, the next thing I remembered was picking my head up out of the dirt, looking back and seeing my fourwheeler rolling backwards into the swift moving canal. I jumped in the water and picked it up enough for my buddy to get a tow strap hooked to it so we could pull it out. I had a broken collar bone and some road rash w/ alot of sand in it but the worst part was the death of the fourwheeler. I'd had it for about 8 yrs and it had made it through at least twenty major wrecks just fine (one time it rolled 45 times down the side of a mountain and was still running at the bottom) and it was all ended by that fucking dog.

Also a couple of cars, one coming from the opposite direction just turned across the road straight in front of me at the last minute.
I had various stitches and fractures but survived
another one turned across the road as I was passing, and i gouged down the side of the van.

I have been lucky to not have hit anything serious but I have had a few "uh-oh" moments.

Ran through a swarm of bees on the 15 in the fast lane in traffic. I took 100's of bees to the face and chest in an open face helmet. All of a sudden my world went yellow with bee bodies.It scared the fuck outta me and instinctively i took my left hand off the bars to protect my face. When I did that the bike got squirrely and I grabbed the bars but I couldnt see anything from all the bee carcasses on my glasses. I managed to wipe off most of that crap but I was pulling bee stingers outta my face while riding.

I also managed to get a ton of earth stuck between my engine guards up about 45' degree angle embankment. We were coming back from the St. paddys day festival at this bike show in San Diego. I had been drinking way too much for my own good. After we left the show, the on ramp to the freeway is a series of 90' degree turns. quick right then left. We were gunning it and my beer buzz didnt give me the reaction time to turn quick enough. I ended up missing the second turn and hit the drainage ditch then up the embankment. All tried to do was keep the bike pointing up as my brakes did nothing for me in the foliage. I kept the bike straight and ended up knee deep in dirt towards the top of a steep embankment. As I backed down the embankment I ended up kicking out mounds of earth and rocks from the bike. My buddies had stopped but I was able to just get back on it and laugh it off. Had there been a concrete barrier there I would have been toast. I was dumb and reckless,I dont ride like that anymore.

Which to me, is one of those cars that you pay $40,000 to make some sort of Save the Environment statement.

I mean, why else would you off-set any fuel savings with the purchase of a new vehicle? You'll never make that up.

Anyway, that being said, they flicked a cig out the window(most likely not on purpose) and it hit me.

It didn't do anything except piss me off huge. You're driving a stupid, little fucking hippie mobile to make a statement to the world that you care, and you fucking flick your cigs out the window?

About two weeks after I finished my bike a work truck dumped a gallon of beige house paint out of the back of the truck right in front of me. The paint was all over the ground and I had no choice but to roll through it. I do not roll a front fender. Both the bike and I were absolutely covered in paint. By the time I got to my destination just a quarter mile up the road the paint was dry. I chipped paint off my bike for days. My clothes were ruined etc. It was pretty damn funny once the anger subsided.

The best had to be when I was a kid my father and I were talking on a pay phone when we got run over by a car that had just been T boned by a dude running a stop sign. The car was resting on the base of the pay phone when it came to rest.They never replaced the phone. Definitely had an angel with us that day!

Prius drivers are, without a doubt, the fucking worst in SF.

Other than dodging those assholes, I had a lady do a U-turn right in front of me on a residential street. I laid the bike down pretty gently, but my brake pedal cut about an 8 inch gash in her door. Another time, I was splitting up to the front at a stop sign between the cars waiting and the cars parked at the curb, and got to a spot where I couldn't fit, stopped and put my feet down. The Tundra next to me rolled forward right on top of my foot. I was stoked to be wearing steel toes that day.

As long as those stay the worst, I'll be just fucking dandy.

I buried my springer front right into a pothole doing around 40mph last spring out on rt 12.Normally that wouldnt be a big deal kinda comes with the territory but this fuckin thing was about 2' round and about a foot deep.I made the rockers and custom fit paughco pins in this front end cause it didnt have any,plus welded extra matrial around were the pins are and I was very worried about it being able to hold up to abuse. She's good!

One saturday morning, I was riding home hungover, saw a white shirt in the middle of the road and decided to kick it. Got on the freeway for a few miles. Took my exit, and while I was waiting at the light, I noticed the passengers in the car next to me were laughing. They were pointing at my left foot. I look down, and what I thought was a white shirt was in fact a pair of shit covered chonies. It was wrapped around my foot good and was a pain to fling em off.

Not bad, but funny.

A lit cigarette hit me in the face one night, scared the crap out of me.

I was rear ended making a right turn at an intersection. I was in front of a bus and apparently a car cut in front of the bus, clipped my back wheel and knocked the bike out from under me. Driver took off (hit and run). I didn't know what had happened, never saw the car. People at the bus stop told me what happened.
Bike got banged up, scraped, bent but not too serious, and I rode home, banged up and scraped too. Next day could hardly move and discovered I had really banged my knee cap, limped for months.

Dumbass in a mini-van. It was slow-speed and I managed to keep the rubber-side down when he pushed my back-end over about a meter. A little further and I would've been under the car next to me.

Boy, was that fucker trembling when I tore my helmet off and started walking towards him. That felt good.

Took a bee to the grill on a country road, went through my lips into the dip spot. Had my wife on the back and no shoulder to pull over. Finally pull over to have my wife pull the stinger out of my lip, she accidentally squeezed the venom into my lip, looked like JJ Walker n shit. Then we realized we were right next to a beefarm with all the white boxes full of bees and took off in a hurry.

I hit a small black child.

i was cruisin the trailer park on a 50cc honda scoooter when i was 14. A small black child ran out in the street and I hit him. Me and the scooter bounced off of him and wrapped around a gas meter. The kid got up and ran off screaming. I never found out who the hell he was or what happened to him. I got my ass beat when I got home for wrecking the scooter. I hit a cow broadside once on the same scooter. Those hondas are tough as fuck. didnt phase the cow much either.

I was ran over by a 80's 450 3 Wheeler, triple spin cycle,on gravel - t shirt & jeans,+ill fitting helmet.
Still have a scar from that incident.
Slamming into a 100-120lb Deer @ 40 MPH was a bit hairy, even in the truck,Though my trucks grille was damaged, it was not as badly damaged as the deer's grille.

Was riding with a DEA buddy of mine. Bar to bar racing, shots and all. He had heard I could do a standup wheelie on the rigid sporty I was on, and finally talked me into it after we decided to head home. We take a left, I ease through first, then at the bottom of second, I stood on the passenger pegs, pushed down on the bars, and as they were comin back up, I dropped the clutch. Once she stood up, she would float like my old GSXR. Well, I hadn't ever done it drunk before. Started to loop it, so I chopped the throttle, and when it started going down, I ripped it back open to keep it up. I hit the pavement, and my metal seatpan hit my ankle, and the bike started flipping. I saw headlights and shit spinning around, then stopped in the middle lane. Car coming in my lane, so I tried to jump up and move to the side of the road, and realized my foot didn't work. She finally swerved at the last minute and went off in the ditch. Tears were shed thinking about how close that part was. There is some missing bone there and all the bones across the top of my foot broke as well. Baboon ass cheek and a few other spots of rash. Cop asked how much I drank, and my buddy I.D.ed himself, and the cop let me off with a no MC ticket.

I won't drink and ride, and the wheelies are saved for when I jump on a bud's zx10.

On a close call note. Last fall I was going to work and a deer came trotting out, I was going around 55 so I figured I'd just keep going instead of skidding out. I tucked and gunned it and it sort of hopped over the front of my bike. I felt his tail brush my right arm and it was close enough that I saw the shit balls that were stuck on its assfur.

Ran "through" a roadkill deer on my Shadow 1100 on the interstate at night coming over a blind hill near Rayville, LA. Scared the crap out of me, made it to the next exit at Tallulah, LA and pulled off for coffee and change my underwear. Walked in the truck stop, got coffee and smokes when I went to pay for them the clerk looked up and nearly shit herself... I was like "wtf?" paid for my stuff and went to the bathroom. I walked in the door and scared myself... I know why the clerk freaked out as I was covered with guts, blood and hair from the deer. Full leather covered in gore. Needless to say I got the HELL out of that place before I had to explain to the local cops "where the bodies were".

Sideswiped by a Honda Accord (young kid texting and driving), saw it coming, punched the passenger window, jumped the curb, slide through the grass and zipped right back in behind her at the next light. Pulled up next to the drivers window in a very hostile mood to say the least. I reached over to the drivers window and gently tapped on it... she was scared shitless and by the look on her face will pay more attention to motorcycles from now on. ;)

Rear-ended by an M-Class mercedes, saw her cut 4 lanes of traffic to make the turn lane. Caught the side of the rear wheel near the back and knocked the bike out from under me. About 15 running steps and a shoulder roll I get up, walk over to the car and tap on the glass. She rolled the window down about an inch and looked like the Grim Reaper was standing there asking her if "she" was ok. Looked to me like she might have soiled that little white tennis dress she was wearing too. Three small scratches on my bike and a little cock-eyed rear fender. Pulled the whole front end plastic off the Merc... I bet it was over $7000 to repair. 4 good bangs with a hammer and a couple squirts from the ole bbq-spray paint can and I was good as gold.

Biggest scare was an extention ladder on the interstate in traffic, slid out of the back of a truck about 8 cars up ahead, hit by another cage and came past me spinning and cartwheeling. Bounced off the right floor board and the toe of my boot. Guy on a Gold Wing about 30 feet behind me almost got decapitaded by it. Guy in the truck did the smartest thing he'd done in his life up to that point... he hauled ass.

y'all ride safe.

Man you guys have had some gnarly stuff happen. I haven't been riding on the street long enough to have anything bad yet.

Got some guts from a mouse or some other small roadkill on my face while riding to work one day, had a few bugs to the face. One covered my whole left side of my glasses with its guts. Took a golf ball-sized rock to the chest once at about 80mph. A lifted truck kicked it up on the highway. That one felt great for the next few days.

Stupidest thing ever, boyfriend (now ex) unexpectedly picked me up from work, I was wearing a dress with a cloth belt on it, the belt unravelled and got caught in the tire. We came to a stop I asked him to wait a minute but he didn't hear me over the bike. I reached down to get the belt out, the light turned green and my hand ripped across the tire. The burns from the tire went all the way down to the bone on a couple fingers. Put me out of work for 3 months. F-n sucked.

Doing about 70 on I-10 in NOLA, when a car kicked up a piece of 18 wheeler tire and it got me in the gut. It was about 8 inches long, and I was only wearing a t-shirt. I always rock a vest when it is warm now. I don't care what people think it looks like, cause that shit hurt. Looked like I got hit with a baseball bat.

Worst one was actually the lowest speed one, got pinched by a lumber truck on my mountain bike, if I was a foot further forward I'd have been meat between the duals. Cracked my helmet and knocked me out good. It was right after college finals and I didn't remember most of my summer semester just prior to the accident for quite a long time.

Last one was pretty good, car side swiped me doing what must have been about 80 as it cut across 3 lanes to avoid traffic on the 15 north just past Miramar and I went down at about 50, I don't know far I slid but I was able to get the bike off me and kick away from it pretty quickly and position myself so my boots and jacket took the worst of the road rash. I remember looking at the traffic bearing down on me and had time to deduce that the gap between me and the front bumpers and tires was growing and I probably wasn't going to get run over.
