Ya, make me thing, I'm glad I have a steal frame... It's amazing how fast **** happens, and it goes to show why, if your making a left turn, why you shouldn't turn your wheel till your actually turning....

Sorry you are hurt, hope you heal fast and get your knees in the breeze soon! Too many drivers not paying attention to job 1 which is driving their cage.

I have been wondering about you. That accident happened about 4 miles from my home. I was in the traffic jamb after the accident with the cops and firemen stopping traffic (this was near a town of about 350 population...we NEVER have traffic jambs). The only thing the newspaper said was that you were airlifted. Do you live in this area?
Good Luck with your recovery!

By the way, my brother and riding partner since we were kids was killed a few years ago when a left turning pickup was rear-ended and he hit him head-on, and he was in his pickup, not his bike, so I second what nickr914 said above.

damn the bad luck,,,and through absolutely no fault of your own. a friend of mine and his wife had a teenager pull right out in front of them, wife went over the car but he did not. they both recovered but it took time and the were only going about 40 mph. sh!t like this happens way too often, thanks for sharing. doctors can do amazing stuff these days and physical therapy is key ! good luck and i hope you know a good lawyer !

Recover well, and very sorry to hear about the crash. Hate it when it happens, especially when some other fool is the cause.
