Well, had my first fall. It was inevitable at some point in time but thought it might be a little better then how this one went.
At work, we have many security entrances and exits into and out of the main parking lot. All of them have the security "arms" (or bars) for gates. They are also activated (the exits are at least) by weight and motion. Well, the weight sensor does not work for me but I 99% of the time can activate the motion so the arm goes up but ONLY if I hit the right area. The only issue is that there is a small delay so I cut the corner and sneak past the little opening in the arm. I have only misjudged it once..... but nothing happened.... until today!
As I was sneaking past it, my right bar hit the post and I could not recover and I went down.... on my left side. Luckily I was not going fast and luckily the pannier caught most of the blow. Scraped knee, elbow and hit the hip pretty hard.
I should have took a little more time to check everything out. As I was riding away, I noticed my air horn busted off so I had to stop and "fix" it. Noticed, only after I was too far away, that my mirror on my glasses was gone. I was pissed about that cause it took me FOREVER to dial it in. I got home and called the security post but they had no clue. I will look for it tomorrow morning.
Sooooo.... glad to get that out of the way!
