Was this you?

Found this on another forum. Was it someone from here?


I had my first wreck today. I live in houston and I ride into the city everyday. Let me give you some background. I ride a 2005 F4i and I've been riding for 5 months. Im pretty confident in my skills but I know what my limits are so I usually just commute and go cruisin with it. So I don't do anything that stupid. Now to the wreck. I was on my way to work wednesday and traffic was bumper to bumper so I cruised in the hov lane. Now the hov lane where I live is next to the left lane so its not seperated by two barriers. Now I pulled out into the hov about the same time as this women corolla. The speed limit is 65 and we were doing dead on 70, we were cruising and she sudedenly slammed her brakes. So I of course hit my front brakes then quickly hit my rears. Being in the hov I didn't have many options of where to go other than into her bumper. After I hit my brakes my rear slid out to the right then back to the left then back to the right again. I was really close to the barrier cause I was hoping I could fit inbetween her and the barrier (which wasn't going to happen) Since I was that close to the barrier where all the sand and dirt and rocks were that's my tire broke loose cause I know I wasn't on it hard enough to lock'em up. After the tire came back to the right I flipped over the handlebars and rolled down the highway. I snapped both the bones in my right arm and got bad roadrash on my left palm. So now I'm getting surgery to get plates in my arm in a few days. The woman that was ahead of me didnt stop until a pedestrian stopped her and after he the guy talked to her she drove off before the cops came and left so I am stuck paying for all my damage.
I just wanted to inform all you other guys that no matter how careful and aware you are of other people they probably aren't aware of you. I guess its one of those things you can be told a thousand times but it doesnt sink in til you actually see and realize how important it is to be as careful as you can
