    Oh, :shock: - I didn't know and hey, that sounds bad. More so since it was a hit and run! No one there to compensate for all your trouble and money to pay for the medical treatment! That's bad. Boy, that's bad!
    I'm glad to hear you sound so positive about things, telling us how much better you are, when I think you must, in fact, still be badly off with that brace and the many fractures in that one leg (all in one leg, the one you fell on first and the bike fell on, too?). Whoa, that DOES sound bad! Sorry, I never knew...

    Sheesh! Did anyone catch their license plate? This is what's happening here, folks! Total disregard for whom else is on the road, more so if it's a biker. I've seen my fair share, thank the above it hasn't yet happened to me.

    Rest, get well and get back on the saddle in time. Let me know what I can do from this end of things.

    Be well.

    From an ex-biker to you, glad to hear things are coming along well.

    I only had a single cutoff by someone and I tore off after them until I gathered my wits back and thought better of it. The guy was behind me for miles on a double lane and just as it was merging into a single lane and I was moving over, he decided to gun it and fly by me. He ran me off the road, but luckily it was quite smooth and nothing happened.

    The only other incident with a "cager" I had was the guy who sat nearly on my back tire in a full size truck with his high beams on. He would click them off every time an oncoming car appeared, and flick them back on when they passed. I finally had enough of him and left him in the dust on a long steep uphill while he struggled to keep the speed limit.

    Don't know you (Hi, I'm Kristina) but am glad to hear you are okay. I used to have a GSXR 600 and ended up selling it last february after finding out my husband and I were having a baby.

    People, both cagers and riders, are being alot more aggressive. You definitely have to look out for yourself and always, ALWAYS wear gear. Sometimes I miss it, but i definitely don't miss the near death experiences!

    Heal up quick! What kind of bike do you have? Or had?

    Oh noooooo! So sorry to hear of your accident, and that the person who hit you didn't have the cojones to stop. That's quite a list of injuries...I hope your recovery is speedy. And that there is karma for that driver.

    Glad to hear you're on the mend. Not sure the bike is going to get any better though. In my time on two wheels, I had a few scrapes, but never anything as serious as you've experienced here. Get well soon

    As a rider, I am sorry to hear this, and hope you are back on your feet (and bike) soon.

    I had something similar happen last year, but fortunately my outcome was without injury. A guy in a rice-burner "thump car"....with the bass so loud it was rattling the windows...didn't hear my bike next to him and came over on me. The hard boot kick in his driver door did get his attention, thankfully, otherwise I would have been into the curb.
