It’s 7 p.m. on Friday, September 23, 2016. I have the weekend off. Tonight is my club’s motorcycle event. So I head over to the hotel and start setting up. My buddy calls and asks if I can have some water bottles ready for him. I put my helmet on, tighten the straps, hold the ignition and crank the handle on my bright red bike. As I approach the intersection, the smallest voice tells me to turn left and just go to the convenience shop. Instead, I turn right and head for the gas station. Before I know it, I’m forced to make the fastest, and possibly most important decision of my life. I slam on my back brake as a car illegally turns in front of me. Do I dodge left and hit the semi, or cut right into oncoming traffic?
