I was riding my street bike at a nice slow steady speed enjoying the sights and smells when, this mid sized dog on the side of the road saw me. i don't know why but dogs love to try and kill motorcycles. well he got out in front of me so i went off to the side and hit my brakes. the brakes locked up and the bike went down so i dove off. i rolled across the ground like a ragdoll and durring this i saw my perfectly good bike i never treated right spin in a circle on it's side onto the pavement. i am alright barely scratched thanks to my hemlet and protective jacket. the bike it beat up but still rideable (barely). I didn't see the dog after the crash though but i do belivve i missed it.

I was once riding my bike someplace, when a dog came up behind me...
Now, I am not to fond of dogs, so I think I set a new record speed for myself...

yes dogs are a pain for any small vehichle. A motorcycle crash is usaully safer than a bicycle as long as the motorcycle isn't going fast or if it trys to comeback. i was doing a nice speed but thanks to bicycles and motox i learned to wear all my gear. i saw where you posted about that dump truck. those things scare me to much to ride anything around them and i work for a trucking company!

Actually, it was a semi... full of Pepsi (Ok, so now are they out to run down Coke drinkers?). But I have had a handful of problems with dumptrucks... mainly with sharing the road (even though i am as far off to the side as I can get without going off road).

Speaking of which... do you have any problems with people sharing the roads?

Not to sound like a heartless bastard but I'm not crashing for a dog, sit back on the seat, a little more weight on the pegs and apply throttle before you hit dog/cat/deer/squirrel/vermin I'll do what I can do avoid someone's pup, but if there's gonna be contact, its on the power.
