Friend of mine got rear ended today.
Riding a 04 YZF600, waiting to make a left turn to go into his place of work, a woman in a Sante Fe rearends him, sending him flying about 20 ft.
He has a broken wrist, banged up knee, and many cuts and bruises. Thankfully he was wearing his helmet, as that is severly scraped up on one side.
The bike I'm sure will be totaled. Left side fairings busted up, stator cover scratched, mirror broke off, rearsets bent, subframe bent, back plastic broken up, rear wheel bent, exhaust bent.
There may be more damage, but that's what I saw with a quick once over.
The woman admitted right away to the cops that she just wasn't paying attention, and it was all her fault. There were a few witnesses around that gave the same account, she never even slowed until impact.
We'll see what happens out of this... that b!tch should fry...
Luckily, my friend is at home resting... so he should be ok, just take some time to heal up.
Not the way to get yourself a new bike!!
Stupid inattentive women drivers
