Thanks everyone, appreciate the kind comments. As for the drama, no need for it( I understand where you both are coming from, and I know some were heated over it; its not worth the fight. Appreciate both your sides, thanks.)

Sorry for the late response, been resting after icing/heating my leg.



We were on the fundraiser ride for the Troops, I was two cars ahead of the group. It wasnt a large turn out, only 18 bikes in all. At Honey Egypt I was going to block traffic so I came to a stop, put on my left blinker and as I began to turn the mercedes behind me attempted to pass me on the left over a double yellow. I was at fault since I honestly told the cop I was braking, had my turn signal on AND DID BRIEFLY GO RIGHT BEFORE LEFT. The Mercedes faulted for attempting to pass in a no pass zone.

I was wearing gear thankfully, but it was a blessing considering the low speed, no injury on their part and minimal to both our vehicles. No damage to my bike on the left, my leg took the impact on the calve muscle and upper leg(no knee directly) while I was leaned. Right side of the bike has a broken peg, stratching on the rear and front fairing and mainly the exhaust and turn signal. Pazzo has minor scratches. I pretty much fell to the right w the impact and rolled.

Blessed w the situation considering the mistakes I made as well as the other driver. They were very nice and understanding especially after realizing the driver was a retired vet. The officer rides track and declared the accident "no fault." Im going to take a few days off from work since I cant put any pressure on my leg as of yet, and my cars have a clutches lol.

Leg is very swollen so went home w help from Ray getting a truck, Sikko2010, Xracer helping us load/unload. BamBam69 picked me up and dropped me off at the ending event for the ride at Rookies so I could participate in the raffle and raise more money for the troops soliciting tickets lol.

Starting taking IBprofen last night because Im not a fan of medicine/doctors. Plus I think its appropriate to work through the pain so I can appreciate my own mortality and consider even more about safety considering riding circumstances in the future.


To answer Mr.D:
1) first day of riding track in California I blackedout from a wreck on the police cone course crash(900rr)
2) Rear ended by a truck at HMP (busa)
3) Side swiped by an SUV @ Amanda's Bday in the underground parking garage, hit and run(busa, no damage)
4) and this low-speed accident

Not so bad for approx 25k/yr joy riding, 10yrs.

I feel bad some of the riders didnt continue for the BINGO run, especially Robert from Katy that hadnt ridden up north. You missed a good ride, I owe you but thank you for all the help! Was a pleasure meeting you sir!
Thanks to the officer, the kind Mercedes driver and his wife, other riders that continued w the ride and completed it(hope my route was good! Let me know how the brand new Drifters is!!!!)

Would be up to hang out, but I still have a cracked water pump. Dont want to take the beast that far. Glad you are relatively OK. Heal fast. WE were supposed to stop at Rookies while we were up that way last night, but other plans got cancelled, and we stayed near home.
