Destroy!

So I went head to head with a 22 year old college student who had been drinking at a bar and pulled across 4 lanes of traffic.  I managed to lock up my brakes (front and rear drum, thanks Justin!)  and slide (while still staying upright) and smashed the right side of my bike into the dudes driver side door.  I was then thrown over the hood and supermanned down the street.  I hopped back to my feet pretty quickly, with only a little road rash and what feels like a pulled hamstring.  I found out that I am pretty indestructible, so that's a plus.  I'm pretty sure Finger's Mids saved my leg from being smashed into a thousand pieces, so thanks dude!   Brake linkage, pipes, mids, air cleaner and bars are pretty thrashed, but it could have been much worse.  Keep an eye out for these assholes, they're everywhere.
