Two Birds, One Stone.

Since I last blogged, I got in a car accident and sold my motorcycle.




The car was hit by a motorcycle from behind. A little unnerving to say the least, to watch a motorcycle go flying out sideways from behind your car while you are driving on the highway. I was fine, the motorcyclist survived (thank you Angels!) but he did suffer some broken bones.

I had planned on selling the bike prior to the accident and was on my way home to meet a prospective buyer the night the accident occurred. Odd.

The car is still in the shop and will be for the next couple of weeks at least. Thankfully it is not totaled.

Once concern I do have is a box of books in the back of the car that I didn't get a chance to remove prior to it being towed. They were books I had planned to donate - until I discovered that there was quite a collection of, umm, lesbian themed books. Hope the guys at the auto body shop don't get too distracted. I need my wheels back!

While I'm thankful the accident wasn't worse for you or the Guy, it saddens me unbelievably that you're no longer a member of the Dykes on Bikes community. :(

I plan to purchase another and continue to ride until my poor old Arthritic fingers become too weak to hold in the clutch. Then I guess I'll be relegated to being someone's Bitch.

So glad that you weren't injured, but you can fully expect future harassment from your YGF about putting that rumble betwixt your legs again. ;)

Okay, first of all, I'm glad you're okay. And the other person is okay too.

Second, if the guys do read the books, the women in their lives will be grateful. ;)

Hope you get your car back soon.

Hey thanks Laine and Em. Who knows? I may take the plunge again and pick up ridding at some point. Such a short riding season here and work is too far a commute to ride - so I wasn't get much use out of the bike.

Lol Em at your comment about the books. So true!

Ouch! Sucks to be that rider but glad life was on their side. Your bike is HOT...No way the commute was too long. (I love riding mine to work)
