:cursin: Buddy just came back from lunch just shakin. Said he just high-sided his bike. Guess this guy two cars ahead decided he wanted to bust a U on a crowded street from the middle lane going about 40, slammed on his break and whipped around. He said all he saw was the car in front of him hit his brakes and the rear end lift way up (guess he hit'em real hard). My buddy said he grabbed as much brake as he could, somehow the front wheel turned and he went over the top. Tore the side of his bike up pretty good, thank goodness I talked him into buying a jacket and some gloves a couple weeks ago. He had some road rash on his legs, his boots and arm of his jacket pretty scuffed up and the palm of his glove just ripped apart...but reletively unscathed besides.

What really pissed me off was the guy finished the U-turn, looked at him getting up then just took off. Thank goodness the guy between him got the dudes license plate, tho I'm not sure if it will matter.

Poor guy has only been riding 2 months.

Sorry to hear about that. Some people are just plain fugging idiots. Glad your friend is ok. Unfortunately I know someone who lost a son from an idiot do this same crap. :(

He called the police and tried to file a report, and they told him that since there was no collision that they can't do anything.

I'll try to get him on the board. I think his wife came and picked him up for the day, he just didn't quite feel like saddling up again today.

See, a guy I work with also got cut off by a car, he braked hard and layed the bike down, the car sped off. I would have slowed as much as possible, punching a hole into the side of their car with my bike. As the cops said, no collision no fault. Why mess up your bike to save their stuff when it's their fault?

No collision no fault is not true. I took down a lady's plate once because she ran a stop sign and came into my lane. I hit the brakes and swerved to avoid her so there was no collision. She didn't even stop or anythign afterward so I chased her down to get the numbers. I called the cops, told them what happened and they got a hold of her and brought her into court. She gave some lame story about sneezing and not being able to find the brake :skep: . Anyways, she got a ticket for failure to yield. My reactions saved her from getting a collision ticket, but at least she didn't get off with nothing. I'd report it and see what you can get. Damage was actually caused so pursue it as much as you can.
