Glad your ok Charles. Idiot drivers should have license revoked. Heal up, the bike can be replaced.

So sorry to hear about this Bikehigh.

She must not be a very good diver to begin with. Sounds like she probably almost
hit the truck in front of you too if she was that far into the intersection !

Idiot drivers !

Makes my blood boil just thinking about it !

Just glad you are up and about already after that.

Good thing you don't remember much about it.
That way you won't be playing it over and over in your head !
Been there, done that !

Thank God you are OK.

So glad to hear you are OK.... DAMN Sad about the bike.

This scenario is what took the PartyBoss.

RIDE SAFE EVERYONE!!! Watch those bastards like your life depends on it.

How many miles did you have on that bike, you sure put some miles on it?
Thanks for all the well wishes, guys. I'd put a bit over 32,000 miles on the bike in the two years I had it, and it was running better than ever. Finally got it broken in.

This is why I ride as far as possible to the left when the car in front is turning right and someone in oncoming traffic is waiting to turn left. It makes me visible to the left turner much earlier.

I do the same. I try to be very much situationally aware, and constantly try to do the best I can to both see and be seen. In this case it didn't help. Thanks for trying to teach a lesson though. Much appreciated.
