I've been asked by cagers why I pull up next to the cage in front of me or inbetween. Because of what happened to you r. We hear about it a lot around here where celling while driving or some other activity is more important thaen paying attention. So what happen or will happen to your bumper buddy?

Man, I'm glad to hear you're alright. the bike can be replaced or fixed.

I haven't ridden in 5 weeks but it's due to my health, not my bike. Gonna try to ride Wednesday for a KIA being flown home from the sandbox.

Never are safe in my opinion, I try to position myself so that I can zip up in between the vehicles in front of me if the need ever arises.

That is also the reason I park at an angle, towards the path of least resistance, and a FULL car length BEHIND the vehicle in front and leave the bike in 1st gear, RPMs up a bit for a fast exit.

I guard that spot, and discourage those who would steal it by pacing the aggressor until he is almost stopped in HIS lane and can't take my lane.

I'm ornery that way, but I don't like being rear ended either.

i know the feeling my friend. i was hit from behind at a stop sign, and when the police askthe guywhat happened, he admitted that he had just had eye surgery that day and still couldn't see out of his right eye. i couldn't believe him saying that.



Glad you're ok.

Very glad to see you on here and posting about it and that only the bike was hurt badly.

I hope that the insurance sorts things out favourably and you might spend your down time looking for a replacement Wing.
