Me. probably when i hit and ran a parked car.
You and your ambush questions
How he got on my motorcycle I'll never know
this is a serious question. I laughed tho.
I shouldn't have made a joke about it. Groucho's ghost made me do it.
I was coming around a curve at 40 mph late at night. There were two black cows in the road, one on the center line and one in my lane. I only had time to try to go in between them and me and the cow in my lane side swiped each other. He hit my turn signal, the right cylinder head and my leg. It cracked open his skull, broke a horn and killed him. I didn't go down. If I had hit him head on I'm sure I'd be dead. That night I told the farmer about it. The vultures were on it the next day then someone picked it up we don't know who. I still feel bad about it even though it was an accident.
Don'cha just love it? Fresh meat for anyone with a half-ton coming along behind you.
Many on a motorcycle try to both brake and swerve at the same time when trying to suddenly avoid obstacles that would put them down. It's better to do one or the other, but not both, and in fact making up one's mind to brake only may be the better option - at least until you get your speed down.
Yeah, yeah, I know, you young guys with balls of steel will disagree.
Of course, this doesn't apply to motorcycle ABS brake systems, since I haven't ridden with such a system and am unfamiliar with its braking characteristics.
As always, YMMV. (In other words, what works for me may not work for you.)
Oh wait, that was somebody else.
The thing is, I'd do it again.
