So far, today this has been one of the worst days I've had on a bike
Honda Canada was having a demo day today, So I took the day off and rode to the city, I got to ride the CBR250 and the VFR1200, very awesome day to start beautiful sunny warm day (finally) and I got to ride some new bikes, which was nice.
This is where the good day went terrible, A few friends from the place I used to work at decided we'd all meet up and go for a ride, plus a friend just got his bike license so it was a go. We went towards the local twisty's along the coast and took our time (as we had a new guy with us) when we got to the twisty section we pulled over to give some room to the car in front of us, and explain not to go past your comfort level and try to keep up. So I took the lead, with the older fella behind me followed by the other 2 guys, We weren't going full retarded by any means but an upped pace, anyways I took the lead and went through and stopped a few minutes down the road, waited... and no one showed up behind me..
I ride back to find my older friend on the ground and the bike smashed to hell, we still don't know what quite happened but I figure he went into the corner and froze up as there were no brake marks, he went straight into the guard rail head on, the forks on the bike were cut in half, but he's okay with broken shoulder blade and broken wrists.
after that mess, I took it easy the whole way home as I was coming down into the small valley I decided to just let the bike go (as the house is just on the other side of the hill) of course it's dark, I come around the corner going up the hill and a deer decides to jump out at the last minute, I ended up hitting it which upset the bike but I managed to keep it up and stop (thank god for ABS) and my VFR800 I picked up 2 weeks ago is now damaged
On the upside, the deer is dead, and in my opinion he damn well deserved it for the damage done to my baby
it has been hell today, although I know it could have been worse
