    "Hypothesis that Hondas Hurt Heads more than
    Heads Hurt Hondas Holds true"

    If you are after an anti-car post you're out of
    luck - this one was my fault - although if the car
    wasn't there I wouldn't have hit it would I?
    Hmm.. ;)

    So I leave work and make it '1' whole block.
    Next thing I know my head is bouncing off the
    back of this black Honda and I'm sprawled over
    the intersection. That wasn't supposed to
    happen?!

    I can't remember if I was looking at a nearby
    turning car or if I was deciding which side to
    pass the 4wd on or if I just wasn't switched on
    but the car stopped and so did I, somewhat
    violently into its spare tyre case.

    Thanks to the cyclist who stopped and asked if
    I was okay. Thanks to the drivers for not
    running me over while I was down. I decided to
    cut the ride short and just rode home, a little
    dazed, with a stiff neck and golf ball above my
    eye (yeah, luckily my head prevented any
    damage to my expensive helmet!!!). Mild
    concussion methinks with a neck sprain?

    Bike seems okay but needs further checking
    when I can see straight :)

    Gave my details to driver. Wait to see if they
    want money or if blood was sufficient.

    hurty.. i mean hippy

    effing ell! Bad things happen in threes, or so they say. The rest of us had better be extra careful for the next little while. At least you could ride home afterwards - take care out there!

    Yeah, it's worse today, than it was yesterday.
    I thought I WAS the third so you guys are all safe
    for a while.. Jaz, Dutchy and I?
    Actually, there's also Geoff and whoever else went
    down on BRx. Hmm.. so much for threes... :-S

    ha! Too many dudes away at work so I figured I'd
    better come in. I'm just a little slower than normal..
    probably not even noticeable :)

    I don't like meds with head smacks.. they might
    numb the pain from that blood clot that's gonna kill
    me and any pain is a good reminder to not do the
    same thing again! (strange logic.. maybe.. strange
    human.. certainly).

    I was on the Pug. Damage seems minimal. Head
    took most of the impact. Scratches to shifters
    seems to be it. Anyone know the pre-crash
    wheelbase of a Puegeot Offensiv? :)
