Well... it happened...
I bought the SCR950 last Thursday. I have been without a running motorcycle for about the last 3 years. I bought this one brand new and I made it to 32 miles before a near miss accident.
A van pulled out right in front of me while I was driving 60mph (the speed limit). They looked right at me and I must have been a ghost and they didn't see me.
Fortunately, there was no one in the oncoming lane so I had plenty of room to go around them.
However, if the van was going left instead of right, or there was a vehicle in the oncoming lane,
I might be typing this from a hospital bed or not at all.
Almost every intersection I enter, I assume that someone is going to pull out, run a red light, etc. I was hoping that I would make it to at least 1,000 miles before having a near miss, but 32 miles certainly surprised me.
Stay safe out there, guys and gals.
