2 Crashes in 1 Day? …. FML

As a rider and driver, I’m fairly decent.
There are plenty of people out there that are much better than me even on a good day, but I’m comfortable with my abilities, observation and risk awareness.

But still …. still, I had a crash.
And there was nothing I could have done to avoid it or anticipate it.

All the signals were there that the girl saw me as she was looking in my direction as she started to cross and then quickly stepped back.
Even still I instinctively scrubbed a little speed on approach, but as soon as the driver on the other side of the road slowed and waved her over, she just bolted without looking….. and I was ~20ft away.
It was like she forgot I was there.

It all happened so fast.
It was so fast in fact that time hardly slowed down, which it sometimes does during high stress/emergency moments.
She caught my movement out of the corner of her eye when she was halfway over the road, but she didn’t even have time to scream until after the collision.

Fortunately neither one of us were injured and the only damage done was to my wingmirror.
…. and then I dropped the FireWeem when I took him home (D’OH!)
