Hope I didn't inconvience anyone of you when I laid my 05 CBC down on I-75 North in downtown Atlanta Saturday evening about 3:30 pm or so and stopped all lanes of traffic going north! That's an eeirie feeling when you look South and there's hundreds of auto just sitting there and then a look northward, there's nothing but open space. To make a looooong story short I was running the right track in the HOV lane when all traffic in front of me started skidding and the one just in front of me went side ways, smoke billowing, tires squealling. I managed to go to the right of him but there were no more open holes and I laid it down and jumped off, rolling left to the concrete barrier. I survived with a sprained wrist, burned holes on my thick leather jacket and multilayer trousers and holes in the toes of my riding boots. Lucky is not the word!!!! When I finally located my bike, it was sitting most comfortable UNDER a pickup truck. No word from the insurance company yet, but it sure didn't look rebuildable to me. Last time I saw it, it was on a rollback headed north on I-75. I climbed on the back of my brother's wing and we and the other 4 companions left for East Tennessee. Next time I go to Daytona Beach, I think I'll go via North/South Carolina!!
