sounds like a nightmare not worth repeating ...
in addition to riding to be visible, i keep reminding myself to stay further back of things like trucks that keep me invisible to oncoming traffic and also keep me from seeing it before it's too late. more than once, it's saved my a**.
glad you're ok - the bike can get replaced - personally the xc is too big for my taste and i opted for an f800r :-)
