Went down on Monday June 18th

Took a spill on my bike Monday the 18th at about 7am. Had just turned on Fountainview off of Hwy 59 S. headed towards Richmond. As I was approaching the first street, which is Star St., a Blue Dodge Ram Truck made a left turn right in front of me and stopped when he saw me. I was unable to see him before he turned because there was an 18 wheeler in front of me, traveling in the same direction as I was, stopped making a left turn at the same place. Star actually ends at Fountainview so the big rig was turning into a place of business there. The guy in the Dodge truck was turning onto Star St. He could not see if anything was coming either due to the 18 wheeler being stopped there and I guess he just decided he would chance it, and there I was. Well after some manuevering I ended up going down and landed on the side walk. I got up looking for the truck and he was hauling down Star Street. Actually not a single person stopped to see it I was okay. A guys from the place of business across the street finally came over to see if I was okay and helped me pick up my bike. I don't want to go into anymore details about the accident at this time.

As for damage my bike was leaking oil, right mirror broken off, some damage to wheels and lots of road rash on the right side. I haven't been able to check it completely yet.

As for me I had my son come pick me and went to Memorial Hermann in Sugar Land to get checked out. The results were a broken collar bone, broken ribs and a punctured lung. Well needless to say I am still here. Hopefully, if my lung cooperates, I will be out of here by tomorrow (Thursday).

It will be a few weeks before I make another ride. See you guys soon!

Sorry to hear. Glad you're going to be OK. No one stopped - that's disgusting.

So I have been trying to understand the benefits of this. It seems to me that it just adds some more medical coverage to your plan, but I really just don't see the benefit. If you have full coverage the bike is always covered and if you have health insurance then you're good to go there.

Would you mind explain the benefits of this? I just can't seem to justify the extra 400/yr to put this on my insurance.


Also lone rider glad to hear your made it out in one piece. Still sounds like a fairly serious accident. people are just really this days. I hardly ever hear about an accident where someone didn't run. I think we need some vigilantly law to set people straight.

Sucks that you went down man. I don't think the truck stopping would have really mattered financially, since yall didn't make contact. He could have at least stopped to see if you were okay though. It's possible he was drunk/drugged, had warrants, or was illegal. Either way, its good your're still alive.

I had a guy dart out from a downtown street parking spot today. There was a car waiting to pull in behind him, so I didn't see him and he couldn't have seen approaching traffic. Then, he just darts across 4 lanes to get to the far left. Had I not been going slower than the speed limit, he would have taken me out.

My health insurance only covers illnesses. Automobile/motorcycle accidents don't apply.

Why do people bother paying for insurance if they just plan on burning off after causing an accident?

Given the time of morning, and being Monday, odds are pretty good that the route, taken by the blue truck, it their everyday routine. I would sure stake out the corner, for a few mornings, to see if they came by. Me, I would find the right opportunity to beat the ever living snot out of their truck, or them, or both!
