LJ, sorry you got hurt in that wreck and hope you're on the mend. I take it you were alone in the car? Jeez, if he didn't see a CAR coming he darn sure wouldn't have seen a BIKE. Idiots, never underestimate em'.
Jim, always sorry to hear of a rider getting hurt or killed. Around here starting in spring there are always stories of riders getting in a crash often resulting in death. Usually always older Harley riders (and I'm not Harley bashing, just ride your ride and stating the facts). What happens is these old guys (Ha, my age!) buy a new heavy bike and last rode a dirtbike when they were teenagers. No training, little or no gear, and get dead. Sad. Same is true here to a lesser extent of a young man selecting a 150 HP sportbike as his first ride.
Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.
