Default Light Rail tracks on N Broadway

I never thought it would happen to me. I know all about the issue of the street car tracks and how important it is to hit them as perpendicular as possible. Still I was in the far left lane 1 block east of where N Broadway meets N Williams when I went down. I cleared the first track and was just getting ready to clear the 2nd track when it angled enough that my front tire got sucked right in.

I came away with several scrapes, several tears in my pants, and a tear in my saddle. Luckily it wasn't worse and a car wasn't on my tail.

I'd like to thank the good samaratian who flagged an approaching car to proceed with caution and staying with me so I could regain my composure.
