In early Oct. I and the Glee were traveling thru Arkansas on a downhill tight switchback in Mt. Magazine state park. I had traffic in front of and behind me. An older pickup truck traveling in the opposite direction was just about to enter the same curve when his left front wheel came off his truck and was headed for me! I swerved to the right avoiding the wheel and onto the soft shoulder. I then had to rapidly swerve left to avoid going off the shoulder and into the woods. The front tire let loose and I low sided and slid downhill coming to rest with the bike pinning me against a tree. Kind people stopped, and moved the bike off of me. I suffered only some bruises thanks to my armored gear. My first get off in 18 yrs. of riding. I was lucky. The timing of me and the truck being in close proximity in the same curve. The odds of the left front wheel breaking off the truck at that precise moment. Me being in the wheels path. What are the chances..?? Ride safe.
