When I hit the brakes I realized I wasn't slowing down much and I was staring at the back of this SUV saying to myself I'm gonna slam into this car. So I started pumping the brakes to regain some control and I managed to swerve around the SUV but went into the intersection where the light was about to change green. I must have grabbed the front brake which made the bike buck and throw me over the bars. I remember being in the air thinking "this is gonna hurt" I managed to roll to my back and slide about 20 yards on my shoulder until I came to a stop in the middle of the intersection. I barely tapped my head on the ground so I didn't get KO'd or anything but broke my left hand, I think on the mirror when I was going over the bars. Moral of the story is NEVER be in a hurry while your riding and always be ready for anything. Anyways, it's been over a year and I've finally got the money saved to get her back on the road and maybe with a couple upgrades.
No helmet? Lucky.
Are you going to continue to ride without a helmet after that?
