    Today at 3:30. The guy was lookin left while turning right and hit me on my bike. I flew a good 4 or 5 feet, tumbled to my feet, and started grilling the driver. Then for some reason realized I wasn't angry.

    I got the guy's number etc... I feel solid, a bit light headed and spacy but intact. Need some new bike parts that the guy who hit me will pay for.

    We'll see if I feel any different when I wake up.

    Not good man, but yeah bike accidents are usually pretty tame if theres no major impact from big hurty shit like trees and cars. Its usually a graze or two and some light bruising.

    yah cause getting hit by a car while on a bicycle or motorbike would just be able to walk it off:ugh:

    even getting hit lightly you can get fucked up. Its all chance.

    yeah exactly.

    My pedal arm got mashed, so I'd assume my foot got hit but i feel nothing there at the moment.

    Its kinda weird.

    I did an awkward roll. Honestly my damage woulda been much worse if i didn't know how to roll with the momentum and break fall.

    Like when Ortiz got hit on his moped, training can save your life I guess.

    actually a guy i know whose been riding for 5-6 years said himself that in the motorcycle training classes they should teach everyone how to take a fall at lower speeds. But obviously i doubt alot of people would go for that at all.


    even at low speeds with full leather/helmet

    oh well

    falling off and getting hit by a car is abit different. you dont have the other impact of getting hit by the car (whiplash effect then hitting the road)


    I totally agree with you but its all chance something bad can happen, ive fallen off dirt bikes before and nothing serious happened but I know people who have broken ribs fallin off bikes

    Yeah good point didnt think this impact would be that huge though. Plus I grew up beside a BMX track im probably one of the most experienced bike crashers around :)

    Sucks dude, luckily you're alright though. I've fallen of my dirt bike numerous of times, but I've never been hit by a car. I was riding my mountain bike behind my friend when he got smoked by a car if that counts. Was funny as hell because he was also carrying a coffee and didn't spill a drop, yet when he's standing still the coffee goes everywhere.

    This must be somewhere in Greece.

    Translated basically he yells out -

    "God Damnit"
    "You have a red - you have a red" (red light I assume)

    I can't make out anything else but he was real lucky....

    I really dunno why I wasn't angry. I shoulda been furious. I had a split second when I thought of stomping through his window and beating him up in his car. I figured it would be easier to get him to pay for my shit and not go to jail if I didn't. Magically I was really calm and not pissed at all.

    One of the guys he works with is a student of mine. The whole staff saw the accident practically. When the guy who hit me went in my student grabs him, pulls up my myspace on his phone and showed him the bloody armbar pic and goes "You just hit that guy with your car." His response "Oh Shit! I'm so glad he didn't kick my ass."

    Oh I found out he didn't see me because he was putting his bowl away in the glove compartment.
