I was going about 40mph down this road and came to an intersection. The lights where green and there was a car in the other lane with it's blinker on waiting to turn left. When I came to the intersection about 20 feet in front of me the car pulls out in front of me. I jumped on the back and front brakes and heard a chirp from the back, front, or both tires. The back locked up and was way out of line with the front when I was comming off the back. It happened so fast I'm not sure of everything that happened my but I remember being pushed foward and my feet being off the pegs I think. I managed to save the bike though :)

Got to watch out for those cagers.

glad nothing bad happened, you always have to be prepared for stuff like that happening when riding in the city.

I know the feeling, same thing happened to me. But, I was going 55mph and I ended up laying it down and went asphalt surfing :urowned I'm glad you saved it. And from now on, I am very aware of my surroundings when I enter intersections and I bet you are too lol.
