Booooo, I went down. Hit and Run

I was riding down Scarsdale on Monday and got sideswiped by an idiot who didn"t want to give me the lane. The car in front of me suddenly broke, so I changed lanes and the car in the next lane speed up and clipped me. Needless to say, I slid on the street and somehow flipped along with the bike and ended up on the median. I had on thick jeans, Icon arm/elbow guards, and an Icon vest with back plate. The gear kept my rash to a minimum but I did go to the emergency room for precautions. Also, the guy ran. The only description I had was that it was a red Ford Expedition. Witness didn't get the plates and neither did I. The bike did receive minimal damage which suprised me based on how I flipped and slid. I guess the fact that it slid in the grass helped. Now, I'm done riding for a while and I'm selling the Gixxer. I wish you all safe riding and hopefully, I'll get to see you again on two wheels. I'll continue to check out the forum from time to time. Peace yall!!!!!!!!

sorry dont know you, but dont let one incident make stop riding. i say hop back on the saddle as soon as possible!!

but if there are other circumstances along with this incident that factored in as well, then its different, so cant really say one way or the other. but stay safe nonetheless.

Sorry about the crash...but you changed lane and was hit by another vehicle in that lane..sounded like your fault to me. I think the law said if you change into another lane, you are the one who need to signal and yield. I saw too many cars and bikes just signal and instaneously zip over forcing the other vehicle having to brake to avoid a rear end. If you're saying you have to change lane to avoid hitting the disabled vehicle in front of you then you're following too close or ride too fast (2-3 seconds following distance). The guy shouldn't have ran though...but if you merged safely and THEN the guy speed up to hit you and ran off then that's another story (his fault completely). May even be criminal (assault w/ vehicle since your life was at risk?)

regardless of who was at fault, ANYTIME your car hits another car ( ESPECIALLY a moto) you have to be a person to not stop. HOpefully the stars allign and the douche gets what's coming to him/her.

i hope you enjoyed ur time on the bike. this could be a life saving decision.

Really? Dumbest thing I've heard in a while. I don't know the OP and the story was a bit confusing so I'm not going to make any assumptions. With that said, the majority of sport bike riders I see ARE doing stupid things, and sadly they get hurt. When they blast through traffic splitting or weaving lanes and get hit, it's no one's fault but their own. I grew out of that stage after just a few months of riding and now realize how stupid riding like that was, not just for my safety but everyone else on the road.

How sure are you, were you there to witness the accident? People will leave the scene of an accident for the stupidest reasons. They could have had alcohol in the car like open containers, they could have had warrants out for their arrest etc..

Im not taking anyone's side in saying you were at fault, or not at fault. The people on these streets drive careless and reckless everyday, just make sure you follow at a safe distance and watch out for all the for brains drivers. Glad you made it out alive

REALLY! If the guy was in the right, he'd probably had stopped.. So there's probably more to it than just as it appears.



Now for the rider.. Glad you're ok. Don't get out of the saddle due to the wreck.. Most that do don't come back. But only you can make that decision.
