FS: Slightly "soiled" Klim riding pants...

Scary shit happens every day, everywhere. Was taking a short jaunt into NKY Monday afternoon and in a hurry, so I rolled the west 275 loop thru IN. Doing 75 MPH southbound in the fast lane between Kilby and L-burg exit, flat straight road section, dry, perfect sight lines, light-medium traffic, daylight. Pickup was ahead of me, passing a work truck--F-550 dualie with utility bed--in the slow lane. Watched a northbound car--all alone, no one else near him--drift onto the berm from the high speed lane. Immediately lost control--either jerked the wheel or dropped the tires into the soft grass in the median--and proceeded to do a 540* donut throwing mud/water/grass everywhere, crossed the median diagonally and shot up into/across the southbound lanes backwards. Truck in front of me hammered his brakes and swerved left to avoid a collision; I was already hard on the brakes watching my mirrors and hoping the cars behind me were slowing, and the car hits the work truck, maybe a combined 80-90 MPH collision, just about 10-15 feet in front of me to the right, showering me with glass and plastic bits as I ride thru the debris storm. Rode on slowly for a while and had a serious convo with my guardian angel. In the end, it was a non-event for me, but could have been a death sentence. Stay alert out there...and plan for the worst.

It would have made top 10 on YouTube, fer shure. What's scary is that I initially considered ducking in behind the dualie as a shield. Prolly wouldn't have come out unscathed.
