CrAzY OlD LaDiEs!!!
Just wanna start off by sayin hey to everyone... but i need to vent... so bear with me and let me tell u this story.
Today I left my house on my bike (600rr), n e way i was on my way to the gas station to fill up. All of a sudden this car pulls out in front of me making a left hand turn, i lock up my brakes going 50 to 0 in a fraction of a second. the thought of dumping my bike crossed my mind but i decided to stay with it. I came within inches of hitting her. she speeds away knowing what should had just done. but theres more... I turn around and follow her, she speeds up and slams her brakes in front of me. So i beep and try to signal her to stop. she doesn't, so i decide to pass her and stop to make her stop. So i do so and she does stop. Im in the process of getting off my bike when she floors it and she hits me and my bike. My bike goes flying on its side and i go flying over her hood. My bike luckily has frame sliders so none of the plastic was hurt. thank you honda. so i pick my bike up and walk it to the curb. I tried to start and it would not turn over. i let it sit and it finally turned over. the FI light was on for about 10 second then finally turned off, so im thinkin my bike is gonna be ok. by this time im so shook up from the accident i didnt even care about the lady that hit me. i didnt know wether to call the police or not. this is the problem, i had plenty of witnesses on the street that seen it all happen and they have the ladies license plate number. MY bike is insured and registered, but i only have my permit because i had never took the time to take the road test... so if i call the cops im gonna be at fault too. i mean this lady try to run me over! she sent my bike and me flying in the air. and drove off to top it off. ok heres the other problem, i was on my way home from the accident and i let off the gas to turn the corner, tick tick tick... im like wtf, it only happenes when i let off the gas. so i got home and i found out the bolt that hold my rear suspension onto my bike was almost completely off. when i let off the gas the slck from the chain hits it, when i hti the gas the chain tightned up and it didnt touch the bolt. she must have hit me hard enough to knock that bolt loose and off, i cannot get it lined up to slide the bolt back through because of the tension from the spring. i am hoping that she didnt bend my frame... i dont know what to do, i am thinking about calling a lawyer to see about my options, but like i said i only have my permit. i have her licnse number and witnesses. what do u guys think and do u think my bike is gonna be fine? i mean do u think my frame is bent? or would it take much more than that to bend my fram, she hit my bike hard enough to knock that bolt almost straight through. im sorry to bore you guys witht this long ass story, i just need to get it off my chest.
