Good thing I'm P-Sychic...

To survive on a motorcycle you have to be a bit psychic - or maybe psycho.

 

Anyway...

 

Just got into the office after lunch. I'm tooling along about 60 on a long stretch of two lane blacktop. A red suv is pulling to a stop sign on my right. I watch as the lady gives a cursory glance at me, and immediately look to her right.

 

I immediately hit the brakes despite the fact that she was not moving - YET.

 

It paid off, she began to pull in front of me as sson as she looked to the right.

 

It was one of those cases where I knew instinctively that she did not "see" me.

 

No harm, other than it was a while down the road before I realized my left blinker was flashing. I got the horn too, and she looked at me with the pale face of horror/recognition.

 

Cannot emphasize enough:

 

Scan ahead

 

and

 

Anticipate drivers actions

That's defensive driving and it can save your life. Glad to know your okay and I'll hope that it shook her up enough to be more aware next time.

Don't forget "always make sure your blinker isn't on if going straight"

cheers
