Just when I had all my new parts added for the riding season, someone turned in front of me in no turn lane. I was fortunate to miss running directly into them, but the bike and I went to the ground! My phone was in my pocket and was crunched (the employees at the AT&T store said they had never seen an iPhone that destroyed). My watch got all scratched up and my favorite jeans got a whole torn in them. I am bruised, sore, and have some road rash (feels like a bad sunburn), but I will be fine. I am taking the bike in tommorrow morning to get an idea of the damage. The police came out and gave the guy a ticket, so I will be working through his insurane to get everything fixed as soon as possible. Hopefully I will not have to miss too much of this riding season.

Ah Crap that Sucks TX. Well, at least nothing broken, guess best can be said. Just lay up and get better, and post whatever you need. We will find it for you. Take care Buddy. Watch out for those little blue pills, they potent.

Don't sign off on any settlements till the bike is up & running again. Also you may feel pain somewhere tomorrow that hasn't manifested itself yet today & I'm not talking about faking it. Hope all turns out well.

Sorry, TX... that sucks. Hope you heal quickly! Make sure they pay for all your add-ons too, and not just stock parts!

Glad to see you made out ok. Dont take too may pain killers, as you dont want to mask the true pains you may have. And yes, you may want to look into a good lawer to get what you deserve. Did the asshole at least keep put till the po-po go there? Did they offer assistance or appologize for causing the accident. IF they did, they have admitted fault and are not liable.

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. They guy stopped, apologized, admitted fault, and was very nice. He felt bad because he is a fellow rider. There was a police report and they gave him a ticket too. My biggest concern is that the insurance will not want to pay for my after market parts. I have a lot of $ I have put into this bike and I just want it back to the way it was before the accident. Hopefully they treat me fairly and I do not have to get a lawyer just to fix my bike properly. Please PM me of you have any recommendation on lawyers in Texas in case I am forced to go that direction.
