    Might as well have. Actually, I was going straight through a green light at about 55 mph, and a mid 80s Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme coming from the other direction made a left turn in front of me. I T-boned it. My little 2,300 pound car stopped dead in its tracks and spun around about 270°, while his behemoth was knocked about 20'. We were both OK, just stunned.

    The car did a great job of protecting me, despite not being equipped with airbags.

    Glad you were not injured. When motorcycle riding, that scenario is my biggest concern. Happens, but I'm prepared to stop ( a lot at risk ).

    Do be careful. When I rode a motorcycle, 35-ish years ago, I saw stats saying that scenario caused just over half of motorcycle fatalities.

    Thanks. This is my third year with my Deluxe and I notice the extra lights up front are more easily seen:

    @JC higgy , you have some outstanding dream cars. But they all look like I would have a heck of a time getting into or out of any of them! I’m not as supple as I was thirty years ago, for some reason I can’t fathom.

    Haha,i know,i have back problems too, and sadly ,i reckon i'd be in a bit of discomfort getting in and out of most of them myself!

    But, i'll never own any of them, so i dream on...:cool:
