haha

about 6 years ago i filed a lien on a guy for something or another, i forget the details. Anyways, about 6 months ago I got a call saying I can pick up my check. Apparently the guy wanted to sell the car, and couldn't because he had a lien. they are slow working.. but pay off in the long run.

you will likely also be sending him a piece of registered mail (save the green stub) to his house that he has 10 days to respond to, to dispute the claim. after 10 or 15 days the mail is returned to you undisturbed and add this to your collection of "evidence"

if you go ahead and get that letter mailed out you can file the police report as mentioned above with your letter ("notice") in hand to get that included in the report.

So if he does not respond = acquiescence of guilt or, verdict in your favor. These letters need to be notarized affadavits along with your witness testimony notarized. This is likley how a lawyer would tell you to go about it.

I know you are looking for tips from fellow riders but honestly since no-one was hurt this falls into the category of civil suit just as any matter between friends/neighbors/acquaintances would.

Haha. Yea, right. No insurance, avoiding responsibility. I'm sure he really owns a house.

Haha, right on the money with this one. The rider does have insurance though, but does not ride with a license plate as many people I've seen around. That should have been a red flag right there...

I'm all about safety, if not for me I do it for my family and the people I take care of, including other riders in my group. Some appreciate it more than others.
Be careful of your surroundings and who you invite to your rides, if it does not feel right, you can always ride another day.

Thanks everybody for the support. One tends to loose a little faith in situations such as this, but the motorcycle community (motohouston particularly) has proven very helpful.

I talked to the rider today, in person, trying to exchange information, but as you may have guessed it it did not turn too well. No license plate on the bike, but I did manage to get the Vin Number. Looks like I will pursue this the legal way.

I'm preparing the police report as we speak. But besides that, what can I use the Vin number on?

I'm really sorry to hear about your accident... But I've got to say- I dont ride with anyone who doesn't have a license plate and only has a nickname. I mean, wtf is this? Biker boyz?

Both of us live, were are OK, but our bikes...its a different story. The police showed up, but no report was filed. Feeling sympathy, I decided to let him calm down and rest at least until the next day to talk insurance, and that was probably a bad decision.

This person stopped taking my calls and refuses to share insurance information.

My motorcycle is insured to liability only. So obviously my insurance won't cover damages. It sucks, but I'm seeking advice from the experienced. Any would be greatly appreciated.

Moms a cop and I asked her. So you are in luck

A cop HAS to file a police report on anything they encounter or respond to. Go to the pd and get your report, slam that guy with medical bills, and get a few new surgerys out of his

Any chance someone knows how to reverse search a cellphone number?
Is he on MOtoHOuston? Someone might know him and the pressure might raise, don't let it go,give all the infos for mean time at the insurance....

Listen to me it. You previously mentioned you thought he had insurance. Just take the VIN to a police station and tell them the rider hit you and didn't give you his insurance information. They will pull up his insurance information. You just call his insurance and tell them what happened. This works. I've done it.

Go at 3pm and throw the power off at the breaker.

But do start with the demand letter once you figure out what to demand.
