Congrats Black Spot.
Had a terrible end to the weekend. Was storming all day here today, driving
back from my inlaws we were on a coastal road with a cliff face on our left and
the ocean on our right, with no street lights. I hit a rock that had been dislodged
from the mountain side by the rain.
It tore my front left wheel to shreds and buckled my mag. I pulled off, no
lights and no torch. (My stupidity) I could not see much at all. Luckily my
brother in law was close by, so I called him to bring some light with him
so I could put my spare on.
I went to get something out the car, my wife was standing next to it looking
at the shredded wheel, when a car pulled up behind us. I got out of the car
and they suddenly drove off...
My bro in law arrived soon after and shone his car lights on the situation. Damage
to my front bumper as well. Spare was completely flat of course.
Most irritating thing is I just had my alignment and balancing done last week. It's
all gone to shit now. I am just hoping the damage is not too extensive to the steering.
Still, as my wife kept reminded me. It could have been worse. Got home safe, it's
a 45 minute drive, but I took it slow.
