Just like every other time i have wrecked/hit something, i was going slow (seriously, im amazed by this). i had just made a right after a stop sign so i was only going like 5mph. The Jeep Cherokee stopped in front of me while i was checking my ass (looking behind to make sure i wasn't going to be rear-ended. As i turned to look forward the jeep negated my forward velocity. At impact i pancaked on the rear or the SUV (just like cartoons) which left me in a normal standing position. so i didn't even stumble or fall down.
Jeep Cherokee: scratches, maybe?
caged humans: completely unaware anything happened
My Tomos: twisted forks, handlebars forcibly rotated forward, plastic smudge on front fender
Me: bruises (left cheek, both knees, left thigh), scrapes(right ankle, hands).
my 3/4 helmet: a perfect vertical ellipse of horizontal scratches on the clear full face guard where my face mashed into the car.
Once i determined i was ok (no concussion, broken bits, or leaking), i twisted my forks back to their previous state. Some awesome ladies that lived nearby gave me some Aleve before i drove the remaining 15 miles back to my cousin's house.
Im buying a full face helmet in the very near future.
