    This was 3 days ago:

    I was on my way home from work and I was doing about 25mph-30mph in the city, and there are 4 lanes (2 going opposite directions). Anyways, I noticed this BMW 3 series pull into the right lane and I notice it going faster and then (this all happened way too fast) they speed up, go into my lane (left lane) and hit me.
    I tried to use the breaks, but there was no way I was going to not get hit from the speed they came at me.

    Went down really hard. The car stopped at first, but then after a few seconds took off. People around me were extremely helpful and I thanked them for calling the cops, ambulance, and even chasing down the car and taking a picture of the license plate and the lady's face!!!, before it took off.

    My knee was really bloody and my palms, sore as hell. Luckily I was wearing my gear, and it did its job, but alas its worthless now.

    I went to the hospital and got checked out and was treated and released. The bike is totaled. :( Well, it would take a lot of money to repair anyway, so its not even worth it.

    Cops found the lady that fled in the car, THANKFULLY she has insurance. My insurance assured me that with all the witnesses, police report showing me not at fault, should net me a sizable settlement.

    Fuck, my knee fucking hurts when I get up, but doctors told me it should be back to normal in about a few weeks.


    Damn though, when I went off the bike, it felt like when you have a dream where you are falling and it feels so scary.

    Glad that bitch took off though, since you know its going to fuck her up somehow.

    That sucks. I'm glad that you are okay.

    They should fine her out the ass for fleeing the scene of an accident. What a cunt.

    I still hate motorcycles. :)

    I think he law is too lenient(sp) on people who hurt others in vehicle accidents. A friend of mine was on his way to work one morning and was hit by an 18 wheeler and was drug for miles. Someone finally stopped the kid and told him he hit my friend and he was still under the truck. The kid was so stoned and fucked up on god knows what else that he swore he had no clue.
    All said and done the kid only got 5 years for killing my friend.

    Glad to hear your okay and hope you are set once you get your settlement.

    Heh, thanks. Yeah, overall im not doing too bad, but you sure as fuck wont catch me saying that to the adjustors. Anyways, Im hoping to pay off my college loan, buy my $900 worht of textbooks I need this semester and use ther emiander to buy a new bike and pay for my last year of college, if its enough.

    There's some Indian casinos about 2 hours east of here, Ill play some cards there with one or two hundred to celebrate both the cash and good fortune. :)

    Bunny Ranch sounds like a treat right about now.

    It could have been much worse:



    Note: The man is alive in that picture - look at his eyes.

    Count your lucky stars, bro. And if you wonder even for a moment if you'll be able to pay off your tuition, books, get a new bike, etc... Fuhgittaboudit. Broad in a BMW flees the scene of the crime, personal injury and property damage, to boot?! I'm surprised you can sleep without lawyers calling you at all hours!

    He will be OK as longs as he is not being treated by the British NHS, you only go in for a small cut and the bugger down the NHS will kill you :eek:

    I know it's vain, but wouldn't you rather die than have that happen to your face?
