He was not present at the beginning of the cruise. I'm pretty sure he jumped in the pack. I don't want to sound prejudice, but he was a latino male, and could be very probable that he didn't have insurance.
Failed attempt at not sounding like a piece of racist..

Glad you are okay and where able to ride home, thanks to the people tagging along at a slower pace to ensure your safe arrival.
To answer your other question, he went down. he hit pavement, which is why i accidentally locked up my breaks trying to stop and not hit him.

Secondly, I dont understand how I have an "attitude" because I connected a few dots... Causing an accident, refusing to exchange information, giving false information, etc. So call me racist, I could care less what you think.

As for a lesson, that I have learned

I don't understand...did you hit him? or did he fall and you couldn't manage to avoid him so you went down too? or did he hit you?

He fell in front of me, and I tried to the best of my ability to avoid him, but ended up going down as well. There was never any contact between our two bikes.

Ah ok. I gotcha. I was trying to figure it out but couldn't, sorry it's been a long day. Were you both able to ride out of there? your bike looks pretty bad from the pictures.

no worries bro. there will always be those cry babies who believe that minorities can do absolutely no wrong, and if they do and you point it out, you will be called a racist. just brush it off. nobody takes those guys seriously, and neither should you.

glad youre ok, and hope you get something from that lying piece of , though i wouldnt count on it.

Around noon, 12:00 2/20/2011, myself along with another rider was downed due to the negligence of one "Carlos" (LP: "-ZY644"?).

On approach of a corner, I started to slow down, and was abruptly cut off. The driver obviously did not recognize the corner ahead and was traveling at too high of an entry speed. He locked up the rear tire while passing me and turned his bike sideways in front of me. I was forced to lock up my tires to avoid T-boning the rider. Both of us were ejected off the road and into the grassy ditches.

I want to thank everyone that checked to make sure that I was okay, and that helped me get my bike out and some what running. I would also like to specially thank the people that rode slow with me on the way home.

Im looking at somewhere near 1,300 dollars in damages. And since the other rider refused to show me his insurance and gave me a false number, and then left the scene. All I can rely on is once again the help of the other members. Please PM me with any details or photographs.

I'll post pictures later tonight.

Im so thankful and incredably lucky to be uninjured, despite minor cuts and bruises. I want to thank you all in advance. And while Im not able to ride, everyone else needs to remember to be safe, and abide by cruise rules!
Hey Fred, did you get this guy's real number from Manuel yet?

When he left the gas station he told me that he was going to park it at his friends house a block away and come back with a pick up truck later today, 15 minutes later we saw him riding his bike on I-10 with his buddy..... i hate shady people like that.

If you have his real number, try giving him a call and see if he wants to settle out of court, if not report it as a hit and run and report his license plate, i think the guy riding behind you saw the whole thing, maybe could be a key witness in this type of incidents.

im gonna need a complete set of fairings, headlights, front faring brace, instrument cluster gauge, I kept my mirrors from the wreck, turn signals, and right passenger peg assembly.

The forks are not bent, and the brakes/transmission/engine are perfectly fine.

The amount it is going to cost me is well worth my well-being.

I'm sure you don't care what i think, but everyone on this forum knows what you think of Latinos. Judging by your attitude, you had that fall coming too you and I wish you many more. There needs to a smiley with a KKK hat just for you

I agree with your outlook on the insurance things. This is why I am careful about who I ride with. Some of these groups are just an accident waiting to happen.

Glad you are ok. Best bet is to fix it and chalk it up to experience. I don't think it is as bad as it looks at first glance.

I do have different numbers for the guy. I was PM'ed a picture of his bike, the missing digit that I needed is a "3". Have numbers of several people who where there. I need to find out who was behind me... we were all mixxed up after that break on the side of the road.

Not good advice IMHO, it wasn't a hit and run.

the rider of the CBR 954 has ridden in SMR's in past. today however he was not at the meet spot and ended up joining the pack midway through the ride. whether you want to call that being "part of the ride" or not, is irrelevant...

what IS relevant is that he is notorious for breaking formation in a pack. i have PERSONALLY seem him charge the person in front of him in staggered formations, squid through to the front of the pack in the middle of the formation as well as drag race people in the same lane to gain spots.

I'm an not the only SMR regular who has seen this rider ride in this manner. today was the first time i ever met Fred, so i have no bias toward him. My bias comes from seeing first hand several occasions where the CBR954 guy rides this way.

Other SMR riders have commented as well about him. and we never really ever wanted him there.

I don't think you can charge the guy with a hit and run, maybe leaving the scene of an accident. From what Fred said there was no contact. If anything the guy was riding recklessly...but that's just hearsay.

i think the guy behind you was John who was riding a blue buell, if you need his number let me know so i can send you a pm.

i think the guy's name is Carlos, he doesnt seem to speak english so if you need someone to translate please let me know, i would love to help you sort this out the best way possible.

Your calling me racist because your being narrow minded. I wasnt saying all latinos are uninsured, I was simply making a statement that is relevant to my situation.

Is your back tire just going flat or did you tweak the rim or is you swingarm tweaked? Something looks off back there.
