A POS just hit me and ran.

so 2 something this morning, sitting at a red light i see a car approaching i flash my break lights because i see him approaching too fast. long story short he rear ends me on my bike and asks if im ok, he had a scared look on his face and burned off... in my mind im thinking did that just freaking happen, i pick my bike up and catch up to his V6 Camaro then 2 mins later i see HPD and flag them down and tell them that pos just hit me and is running, they caught him and locked his up for driving drunk...

Damages:
Frame slider left side is banged up and took most of the hit
and gear shifter is bent

Yes i had ALL my gear, i was looking like a tank.

, that's scary ! I had it happen about 15 years ago by another bike. It was wet and he came in too fast laid it down, I saw everything in the mirror and jumped. I ended up jumping and clearing as the bike and the guy went under. I don't know how or what, but i made it! He hit my bike and they all just went sliding a bit. Glad your OK, now your going to be a mirror for a while!

i was extremely lucky that an HPD car was out patrolling and ran to their car.

Getting rear ended at red lights is my biggest fear when riding! I really get tense with those jokers who wait until the last moment to brake!!!!

Does insurance cover your liability if you were drunk?

Glad you are OK. I am also very paranoid about this situations. I always stop in the white lanes like if I was splitting lanes, at least this will allow me to move between the two cars on front in case hits the fan.

Hope they can also present charges for hit and run.
