Just letting everyone know to stay safe.

I got hit from behind this morning, I was stopped in a U-turn lane waiting for traffic to pass, when a damn Camry rolls into me. My bike fortunately left me and flew into the intersection. I'm not aware of what happened, but there was a truck that I had stopped to let go by, he didn't hit my bike somehow.

The bike took it well, looks like the right clip is bent, stickers took some hits, but the big ass exhaust pipe saved the rear paint/stickers. I normally don't put bike into neutral untill everyone behind me is stopped, anyway keep it safe all.

Question

Glad to hear you're OK bro. Did you hit the guy/girl in the Camry up for insurance, or did the numbnut leave the scene? Hope you got the money out of it to fix it, but Cagers can be real a$$es sometimes.

Anyway, most important thing is that you're still walkin' and ready to ride. Now go get some insurance money!!!

I have his insurance info, I guess I should have called the police, but I was a victim of "Let's call the cops just to get a report" I ended up with a stupid ticket. I didn't necessarily want to totally screw the guy, I mean, his insurance is already going to go up why nail him with a ticket too?

It was kinda hard from him to flee, my bike was blocking the road :P

I'm about 98% sure I'm fine, my neck did take a good whollop but I'm not going to be an ass just because I "could" be.

I think xert meant previously he was the victim of the ticket. Xert you had better verify the insurance info and get the money quick. Is the vehicle owner going to pay or let the insurance pay. Most times insurances won't pay unless you have an accident report. Did you get any witness's contact info?

Yeah, I got a "Following too closely" ticket for rearending someone during X-mas traffic. Side note, before the cops showed up, there were FOUR more accidents in the same intersection. Louisiana drivers are the damn worst.

This is New Orleans, people here are about the biggest bunch of a$$holes I've ever met. Of course noone stopped. But I've got lots of law enforcement friends here, and there's little a molotov cocktail to a guys business can't settle.

We'll see, besides, we have the same insurance company, and my bike is fully covered, IF I have to use my insurance, I'll be willing to bet they'll ask questions and such. Unfortunately, I have faith in the system, so we'll see.

What's wrong with the way we drive? Just
cuz the DMV lowers the standards to lowest
common denominator should mean nothing.
When i got my endorsement for the bike,
all i had to do was play on a computer and
answer 20 questions a child could get right!!
The cage test is even easier still. Xert,

Xert, glad your OK. I don't think I'd have been as nice as you about the ticket though. A couple more MPH, or depending on if you stayed on the bike after he hit you and if the Mack truck crossing the intersection saw you or not, and you might not still be with us. I take that kinda thing personally .
