Well, it's time to say goodbye to my baby, had a lady pull out in front of me last night, 9 stitches in my leg, bad road rash on my knees, my face is banged up pretty good and I have a dislodged bone in my wrist. But I'm glad to be alive and get out so lucky, someone died in the same spot a few days ago on their bike... My helmet dented their frame, needless to say, I'd be dead without my helmet... It was a nice run guys, stay safe out there!

****. It's never good to hear something like this, but as you said, it could've been a lot worse. Bikes can always be replaced. Heal up and move on.

Yikes. Great to hear you'll pull through without anything permanent though.

At the very least you've got a story to tell how you once dented a car with your head :)

Hope you're back up on 2 wheels sooner than later.

~40% of the population, in this country (US), need to have their licenses revoked. Licensing laws are way too lenient here, it's ridiculous. One can tell they're terrible drivers, not only by the way they drive, but by the stupid look they have on their faces while they're behind the wheel. Their dumbfounded/confused facial expression screams, "I can't drive for $hit." Get a phucking clue.

Sorry to hear this OP. Forget the bike, it can be replaced. I'm glad you made it out of this alive. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Take care.

NZ is no better. Over here we joke that most people got their licenses as free gifts in their Kelloggs Cornflakes packets.

OP. Glad you are okay. You seem to have come out of this ordeal pretty unscathed compared to what could have happened. If you do get back on a bike it is gonna feel pretty weird and intimidating for a while, but this experience will make you a better and safer rider in the long run.

Hopefully you get well soon and you have the love for riding to get back on two wheels soon , I am a new rider and haven't even done 1000km on my bike and have half dozen cars cut me off and a PEDESTRIAN! So everyone stay safe and ride defensively

sorry about the bike man i know you put work into it : / . Good thing is that your alive. Unfortunately many people in the united states take cars and licenses for granted. It is a responsibility and people forget that, everyone thinks getting a car and a license should be given to everyone in the US. **** everyone thinks their entitled to a license/car to drive, ITS A PRIVILEGE!

Glad you came out relatively unhurt ! I have a helmet that looks a lot like yours that I keep on the shelf for a reminder . . . . whenever the urge strikes to ride with hair blowing in the breeze . . .

Heal up and get back to riding when you feel like it.

Where did this happen ?

I think 80 percent of drivers in Texas need their license revoked. Once I get my gopro I'll post some videos it's bad here in Houston

omg.... at least your alive. this is unfortunate, but drivers really don't care about bikers. It's the street rossi highway tools on bikes that gives the regular riders a bad rep. hope you heal up well and get more out of the riders experience

Glad to see you're okay! Hoping for a speedy recovery. Motorcycles can be replaced, your life can not. So many terrible drivers, it's insane! I make sure I have my GoPro on every time I hop on my bike now, I can say almost every day I'm recording, there's at least one terrible driver.

Ride safe!
