Beautiful ride on my commute to work last Thursday, until a car took a turn wide and crossed into my lane. I moved right to stay clear, but before I knew it the left hand turn was upon me and I could not take the corner, speed was about 45-50mph. Found a route out of it right before a guard rail. Kept it up through the ditch but lost it at the top in the wet grass. Dumped the bike in a lowside tumbled over the bars and into the ditch. No injuries, just a sore back/neck and a couple bruises. Bike has bent handlebars and gear shift/linkage bent to hell and a turn signal broke. So glad I made it past the guard rail, could have been much worse.
