Just a friendly reminder to always be looking for mindless drivers... Just got hit/bumped going through an intersection. Was headed N on 17th in Ballard, crossing Market St. Guy headed W on Market St in right hand lane begins to turn into my lane (N 17th) right as I'm about to pass in front of him. I swerve left around him and back north while lightly accelerating to try to get around him but he caught me and left a small mark on my rear tire sidewall. Gave him a friendly reminder to watch out for other people... Bike stayed up so no damage, just an elevated heart rate for a little while. Be safe everyone! Pictures just show how lucky I was I guess! And this is the guy who hit me... so if you see a guy with a blank look on his face driving an old white civic be careful: And just because I ride a gixxer I am putting this disclaimer out there - no I was not riding at all aggressively or speeding. Yes, you can make fun of my chicken tender size chicken strips.
