Yikes! Glad you're OK. I have a 98 year old Grandfather that still drives during the day any way. My folks have tried for years to get him to give it up. No way. Ain't going to happen.

I'm curious though. Other than his BS story / fleeing...did his mental capacities seem coherent?

glad you are ok.
when my 86 year old mom came over to visit and proceded to run into the back of my 1988 3/4 surburban because she could not judge the distance properly, we took her liscense.

I opted to have everything done at once. We will be without the Ural, but won't have to make two trips for repairs. We have the other bikes to ride anyways. I would rather it all be done at once and right.

Yeah, after about 6 months having my '11 R1200GSA the front ESA strut/shock started leaking its life juices. It was a discontinued item for that very reason, and I had to wait just over 3 weeks to get my bike back as they had to pull the new and recently designed one from the assembly line if the bike they were currently building and ship it to the states as a replacement part. I thought that was a long wait.

Its BS that it takes a horrifying accident to get a "should not be driving" driver off the road.

Glad you are ok.

The old timer probably was driving a 2014 car, 'cuz he wrecked his 2013, 'cuz he wrecked his 2012, 'cuz he wrecked his.....

He probably mashed the gas pedal when he tried to brake. After that panic and confusion took over.

We convinced my mother to give up driving after she couldn't remember how many wrecks she had. The neighbor is 92, and she is doing great for that age. We've talked her out of driving on the highway. Real soon now I need to ask her if she'll give up driving before or after she hurts someone....
