Question Whats your take on rider responsibility?

What's your opinion on rider's responsibility when you crash and cause damages to other people's bikes? Do you play dumb and just forget about the whole incident or do you man up and approach to the affected riders and offer to pay for the damages caused by your own stupid actions? This situation can happen either on the street or at the track, but the latest incident happened at the track so i just wanted to hear different opinions on this topic.

On the street? Pay up. On the track? Part of the risk - unless you were riding like a complete ...

Well on the street most people have insurance to take care of that, but on the track.... Lets say you were riding like a complete in the pit lane and cause damages to other people's parked bikes? How should you handle this situation correctly?

if you are on a street/track bike you would have insurance . A dedicated track bike ins isnt required so I would say handle it like an adult.

A friend of a friend was at TWS (Texas World Speedway) years ago in a sponsor's trackday/L3 and crashed into someone taking a corner on the inside, ran wide and into the rider on the outside. The trackday school basically told him his day is over unless he and the other rider resolve there differences...he ended up paying the other rider $100 I think, or something like that.

The point is it depends entirely on the situation. It's not a black and white matter.

As a general rule of personal responsibility I would offer some compensation, but it always depends on the situation and the people involved. You can't make people behave responsibly. You can't make people accept fault. I'm learning that with teenagers - nothing is their fault.

On the street, if I caused the accident would just pull out my insurance info and hand it over. Would only ask to get the bike checked out and estimate. If cheap enough would pay out of pocket .. if too much $$$ my fault gotta be an adult and stand up person.

Depends on the situation. Like contact. Was there actual contact or did they overreact and wreck. I have insurance so I don't have to worry bout it. If I hit you I will pay up. If I don't actually hit you, it will come to circumstances.

This is the main reason keeping me from doing a track day. Actually the only reason to be honest. I was raised to take responsibility for your actions. Frankly if you cant afford to pay for your bike or others you damage you shouldn't do track days. What do I know I've never done a track day just my opinion. If I caused the wreak I would fix the other person's bike before mine..
