My light saved me life

whoa .. i just almost got hit by a car.. i dont know how but i didnt see it coming... it was a one way road and i guess i ONLY looked one way (thats the only explanation i can come up with.... the wrong way

either way all of a sudden there was a car right in front of me and it was night time so i dont think we would have seen me if I didnt have my spot light on the front of my bike like high beams.

... that was very scary.. im freaked out.

PS: title should read my light saved MY life ... i am not a pirate

Wow. Glad you're okay.

Do you mean the car was going the wrong way?
