i hate those 0 mph crashes
Wait! I wanna know what model bike it was.
(Hoping to Gawd it's not a Ural w/sidecar.)
I guess the reason for the OP's rant is that he can't sit on his bike and use a cell phone.
Beats the 100 MPH ones.
I was expecting min to say he was sideswiped by a car or something. Sometimes the stupidest and simplest moves can cause you severe damage. Screwed up my back once by turning my shoulders to grab a piece of paper from behind me, took weeks to get it back to liveable.
Why is he riding around with a Hawk Missile Launcher & how is it attached to the bike?!
It is attached using the data cable, of course.
It probably wouldn't have happened if the guy in the deuce-and-a-half hadn't been screeming so loud.
I have a question for the OP. Were you riding the bike in your avatar? Looks like a Trail 90. Very heavy bike, no wonder you were screaming.

I don't think so. I think he had a top box on a rack in the rear of his bike. This is clearly the case as he said:
That suggests to me a trunk like a Gold Wing trunk or a top box at the rear of his seat as he says above. Also, when you dismount, you don't swing your foot over your tank - you swing it to the back of the bike.
Then he said:
The front wheel has spokes. Not tyre. Somehow the cell phone also fell forward - I thought a cager might have hit him from the rear but not so.
Is it possible to put this post through a Google translator to find out what happened? Gee I hope his knee is better than his grammar and spelling.
His writing style is very cryptic, yet he somehow expects everyone to exactly know what happened. I assumed he was hit by a car while sitting on the bike, since he appear to have knocked himself out and could hear screaming as he awoke. Upon re-read, I agree that he may have tipped his bike over on to himself, by not paying attention when he was dismounting.
He either writes very poorly or is purposely being obtuse.
Maybe he hit his head. Hope the head and knee get better quickly.
The world wonders
Its a rough crowd here!
If I ever fall over, no way I am posting it here!
Hope that the injury produces no lasting damage - have you lifted the bike off of you yet ?
All you would have to is be clear.
So now there's a car involved. OK. Amazing how he keeps changing his story.
By the horned one's spiky tail, I'm german and even I perfectly understood what he was saying.
Although, trying to mimic his mishap, I looked quite stupid and nearly killed myself.
No need to be so rude to someone doing something really, really stupid - but at least realizing it.
Normally, he lifts himself with the help of the bars and jumps of the bike in one movement, swinging the right leg over everything.
Now, having only one hand free, he only pressed on one side of the handlebar, thus, the handlebar swung around (you know...just like when you steer at low speed) and fixed his left knee between handlebar and tank.
So, he was not hit.
His bike did not tip...not necessarily, at least.
He simply fell of the bike when trying to get of.
And the momentum dislocated his knee cap (it sheered it of), which is the same pain as he has had years before.
And in the fall he appears to have sheered of the mirror also.
It is unspeakably stupid and totally embarrasing.
Hence, why don't you laugh slightly less loud?
....and now, finishing this post, I go laughing a lot in some quiet corner :-D
I'm really sorry for the dude and the ESL guy, but who was screaming at him?
You guys like buffalo meat? I like to make buffalo meat snowmen.
In Soviet Russia, knee to blow out bike, not the other way.
