What a fucked up year..

So yesterday since my sprocket went lose and I noticed my masterlink was gone, I left my bike at a friends house.. and then today I find out that all the plastic/headlights were jacked off the bike, stripped down.. so I have to deal with that

and NOW...

Going on I-90 toward my house (westbound) was doing about 80-90 in my car, left lane, tire goes out, and I slide into the median completelly loose control, end up running a curb over and sliding off into the offramp ended up about 10 ft from hitting the pole on the side of the offramp..seatbelt saved my life, kept me in bay so I did end up kind-of regaining control during the slide... car is probablly totaled, I don't ever wanna drive it again to be honest with you, the amount of damage in suspension alone is probablly 12k, plus body work and all that..

I don't know what to say, 2 major accidents in less then 3 months, this year was just not my year...this really fucks up alot of my plans.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Sorry about the car and bike. As for the bike, I sure hope the thieves get whats coming to them . As for having a bad year, I'd say you had more of a good year. You're alive when you could have been underground. I've had a bad year(2 hit and runs, a friend of mine backed into my car, and i dropped my bike) as well but realize it could have been much worse.
