Was in my first accident yesterday.

I was on my way to work at about 6:45. I was about a 1/4 mile from my job. As I was coming up on a street to my right, a white car pulled about two feet into my lane. I figured that he seen me, and was going to wait for me to pass before he tried to make a left turn. I was wrong. As I got within 50 feet of the guy, he pulled all the way out and stoped, blocking my entire lane. I got on the brakes hard, locked up the back tire, and almost the front. . I slowed down to about 10-15 mph before I hit the front of his car. I braced and griped the tank, the back tire came up about 3 feet, the bike came down fell on the right side. I am un-injured just a little sore. Most of the damage looks cosmetic. I called the police, turns out the illegal mexican driver had no license, no insurance, no registration, and it wasnt even his car. I have full coverage, but not uninsured motorist, so I am about to have to pay my $1000 deductable. All the other guy got was a couple of tickets. The officer said she couldnt even take him to jail for being an illegal alien.

**** THAT! she can't arrest him for being an illegal alien... that is bull%*@%.... what part of illegal didn't she understand.... I would find out who's car it was and sue the owner of the car for allowing an unliscenced and uninsured driver to operate the vehicle... or at least file a claim with their insurance Co. ... go get checked by your doctor to make sure that you are really OK... .things always feel worse and more sore a day or two after an accident... remember to try to include your helmet and any gear that was damaged in your accident claim. If the owner of the car is insured they should be liable for all the damages......

glad you are not seriously hurt. hope that the bike repair goes well... this may be a chance to get a nice new paintjob and a new helmet... remember if there your head hit the ground or the car the helmet should be replaced, just as if it were dropped on the ground... the construction inside the helmet may be compromised...

THATS CRAP! I hate when people like that are on the roads. the no license insurance or registration alone, WITHOUT being an illegal would have gotten him jailtime here. a good 6 months worth at least. thats retarded.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

I'm tired of this political Bull*$#@t congress we have. It just messes with the economy. Them illegals are still her because they are making someone some money in this country. The question is, who is mostly benefiting from the illegals being here.
It could be these business's that hire them. It could be the police so they can justify spending.
Man, I'm really sorry about your accident. I'm glad you are not deterred from riding. Glad that you still have your limbs and no road rash and no brain injury.

That's total BS my uncle just got arrested for not have a license,registration,or insurance and he is looking at a couple of months.The guy that hit you should see some jail time,but my cousin got hit in his car by a guy with no legal papers and got screwed big time. So just be prepared the guy that hit you probably won't get Shiznit done to him and you'll have to pay out the Azzz.It sucks azzz but i'm glad your ok.ps.make sure you get a new helmet if you hit it on the ground or anything! Damn illegals

If you got to pay $1000 I suggest you look into doing the repairs yourself. might save you some cheddar!

But glad you're ok... you could have supermanned that thing and been really F'ed up!

Glad you didn't get injured. I agree with Tater... find out who OWNS the car because their insurance is supposed to cover it. Granted, their insurance WON'T cover it because of an unlicensed driver, but you can sue them for your $1000 deductible.

Hope you get UM/UIM on your policy now. Granted, it's too late to cover THIS accident, but it's so flippin cheap compared to the rest of your policy that it's pointless to NOT have it.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

Its true tho. One of my friends was a cop for Dalton (little mexico) and he said they werent allowed to arrest illegals because there are too many of them in jail. I say send their a$$es back to Mexico and pay for it there. No offense to any hispanics on here but I think they get off way too easy.

Anyways glad to hear u werent anymore hurt than u were and with the insurance and stuff.

there was nothing in your statement that is racist in any way.... I welcome mexicans and other legal immagrants to the US with open arms... it is the illegal Fu#$ers that have no liscence or insurance that are screwing over the rest of society.... funny but if I had no liscence or insurance do you think I would just get a ticket....

Glad to hear you're ok, a bike is always replaceable, but I would do as other's have suggested to find the owner of the vehicle and go after them for the damages.

Riding is a pathway to many abilities, some considered to be unnatural
Always leave 'em wanting more

man ain't that the ****ing truff. damn...pisses me off.

I had this happen with my last cage. had to pay 500 dollars to the insurance company to fix my stuff that he hit. then I also had to pay the guys in front of me stuff that I hit when I was pushed in to him.

the guy didn't have license or insurance and was illegal as hell. they didn't do ANYTHING to the guy at all. just let him leave. then the next day I'm getting a call from the guys in fronts lawyer.

Did you guys ever think that maybe the illegal was the owner of the car? Maybe he paid a couple hundy for it from some jerkoff on the street.


Sorry to hear about the ax man.
