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 dont care the reason the driver took off. He was wrong in doing so and I see him as a guilty p.o.s. You know, failure to stop and render aid

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.

it. Why the do people feel the need to tell someone they're a jackass when something happens. If he screwed up, he either learned his lesson or he didn't. The only useful reason to criticize him is to help avoid the situation again, and being insulting will not achieve that goal in all likelyhood.

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 to hear about your get off buddy. why dont you sleep on it a few days before putting it up for sale? i know this incident spooked you a bit, and rightfully so, but just give your nerves time to calm down and go from there. youll be glad you did.

if the OP wasnt following so closely to the car in front of him, he wouldnt have had to swerve into someone else's lane to try to avoid hitting them. pretty straight forward from where im sitting, and i hope a lesson in more defensive driving/riding is taken from this.
