Hit from behind

So sitting at a red light on my V-Strom and, as always, I check the rear view for traffic coming from the rear. I looked in rear view and saw the driver behind me was approaching with eyes off the road.

The impact wasn't real bad, but bike was disabled, driver had no insurance.

Positive out of this was pulling bike forward about one meter when I realised impact was gonna happen. Shared stories with work mates has this common theme (i.e. always keep bike in gear at lights or lane split to the front at the light).

2 months out and still chasing insurance for repairs (WA ins. sucks).

First and hopefully last post in this forum.
