1. You need to practice looking down the road, and keep the closer cars in your peripheral; you would have seen other cars stopping in plenty of time

2. Even when turning, your front brake is your friend. In the average lane change the bike is hardly leaned; if you were zipping thru traffic at +20 their speed or more, shame on you

3. glad you made it out alive and with minimal damage, but it could have been better.

Why do most people always blame close encounters on not taking the MSF? happens and you cannot always predict or foresee it b4 it happens or else there would never be accidents. I think the fact that he didnt lay the bike over means he did do something right. Also why is it that when someone gets hurt everyone says "Im sorry and i Hope u get better soon" but when people have close calls but are not injured they talk to them?

You call it bullshit.... They make a suggestion that may save your some day. Your only 20, learn from others mistakes &/or experience you'll be much wiser.

^^^^^^^^
I do not call any suggestions they give bullshit because they are obviously trying to help, its just that alot of people are 2 faced by what they say and how they say it. I have learned an immense amount of information from this website and i appreciate all of what people have to say, but dont ridicule sum1 becuz they almost got into wreck that they had little control over, thats just disrespectful and rude.

Accidents always suck. And it's true that you should always accept advice for what it is- usually somebody's dumb a$$ has already made that mistake. But when you're young, you're invincible and too smart for that to happen to... That's why you have to make those mistakes yourself.

Even you have to admit some of the advice on this thread is redundant, though. Just because he chooses to not listen or heed said advice, doesn't mean he doesn't know it.

Hearing comes with birth, listening only comes with time.

I know, but the older I get I realize that I have something to learn from everybody, even the young'uns. Humility is a hard lesson to learn.

I'm not saying you had any opportunity to stop sooner or better or anything like that. L'il McKee had a bad stoppee turn worse when he did go off the bike into the windshield. You cannot be responsible for all the bad drivers on the road. Your particular accident may not have been avoidalbe, but then again, it may have by somebody with more experience- no telling.

Just a suggestion, but say thank you to the ones who give advice and thank you to those who wish you well. One thing I have learned is to NEVER tell you people when I make a stupid mistake or have an accident!

JK! I love you all- even the mean ones (besides I would hear it more at home than on here)!

hit a van in the left side with my right mirror, i felt that the bike was going down. so i push the handlebars to the right and up

good thing i stayed in 2 wheels and stopped, but bad thing is my left hand hurts like a son of a bytch

i guess because the extra effort on the handlebars

anyway no damage on my bike but the van had some paint scratch

either way he said he gonna get my insurance to pay

he said only a buff and clear coat in about 2 inches wide damage

Because MSF teaches basic skills that will save your . People that are self taught or learned from a friend 9 times out of 10 do not know the basics as well as they should.

And when people get hurt or killed, I bite my tongue and don't say what I am thinking half the time and say RIP. 99% of the fatalities the rider basically commited suicide and could have avoided the accident by changing one thing...

When they live to tell about it we try to offer the things they did wrong so maybe the next time they can do better.

Take it or leave it... advice on the web is free!

and i underdtsnd your point but, im sure what he meant was some ppl take the oportunity to bash ppl

advice is priceless, but no need to be rude or anything like it

and i dont say this in my case, i say it for other situations where instead of being a regular thread just become a tomato throwing when the intended vector is different, just my .02

and yes MSF teaches you a lot but. it. im sure you agree with me that racer x just browse the threads just to look for the priceless oportunity to throw the MSF

i mean is annoying as , and he knows it, i bet if he has an accident instead of feeling bad, ill go to the hospital to yell MSF? at his face

i mean , i read your advice and the others and of course. ill look into that no one is perfect, im here to learn too

thanks for the advice ppl
