Hey Mike, Glad you're ok bro.... I have to agree with everyone else man. I had a guy tell me he didn't want ins involved and he would pay out of pocket. Long story short address on license wasn't good, neither was insurance, and number didn't work after about a week. File a report bro, telling you from exp... Glad to hear you are good brotha.

I'm really proud of you for not taking him to the cleaners. SO many on here (seemingly) would have done just that.

BUT- on the other (motherly) hand and having been there, done that- you should file that report. Just to have it. I can't say it won't matter to him- he may get a ticket for unsafe lane change (which he deserves), but at least you're set.

I hope it all works out tomorrow at 1. You know we'll all be here waiting to see what happened to you, so don't leave us hanging.

You should file a police report to be on the safe side, he could come back and say that you pulled over into him, I know you have witness statements but they don't hold up without the report being filed in a timely manner. (24 HRS.)

+1

Filing the report at this stage will not require him to get his insurance involved. And they are unlikely to give him a ticket either. But it covers your . What if tomorrow or next week you find out you are really hurt? How are you going to get the medical dealt with? etc.

With no report its all on you...

People freak out and agree to anything at the scene and then change their mind later. Only once did I take money and not file - nurse hit me in the parking lot in a beater of a car nothing serious. Worked out fine but I was also prepared if it had not.

FILE THE REPORT!

Glad you're ok. File the Report.

You were very nice to this guy for agreeing not to go through his insurance; however, I hope it does not make him feel like he can get away with driving like a dumb*ss all the time. This mistake only costs him $500, while I'm sure he realizes that with Insurance and a ticket involved, it could have costed him alot more. Higher premiums, points on his driving record, etc. would make him think twice about being a dumb*ss on the highways, and possibly hitting another biker or causing others to wreck. With so many other drivers pulling over to volunteer as witnesses, I'm sure he off alot of drivers on that road. He'll probably do it again.
