Oh my God, I just almost crashed. I didn't even see him to the left trying to pull onto the road, I usually slow down. He does, I hammer the brakes, it was either that or crash into him. The rear tire locks up, it starts to slide to the right, I turn the handle bars slightly right to stay up. I hit the front brake harder thinking it would compensate, it does. The bike slows, the dude pulls away, I release the rear brake, and thank everything holy the rear tire rights itself!!! Holy ****!!!!
So I gun it and catch up to him, NOW he sees me! We stop at the light. My arms are out, "What did you miss dude, the GIANT gold motorcycle?!!!" I yell. He's visibly nervous, he blows the red to make his right. I've never been that close, holy crap! People really DON'T see us fellas - at all! Please be safe!!!!
