Not very happy right now
Merging on to a road from the right hand lane, I pull up behind a vehicle and stop. Look back and see ample space to pull out for me and the guy in front of me (and the person behind me, and behind him....) Guy in front of me releases his brakes and starts to accelerate...I look back once more and start releasing my clutch, when all of a sudden I hear...SCREEEECH...look ahead and see the F#CK in front of me with his brakes on!!! Countersteered left and just clipped his Dodge Dakota at about 5-10km/h.
Put a good ding in his left quarter panel and his turn signal was cracked.
My bike his kinda screwed....The front part is bent in on the right hand side pretty good, the headlight is busted, right hand fairing and middle fairing are useless and my turn signal is gone. Didnt have time to look at the dash..
What pissed me off the most is as soon as he gets out he starts yelling at me "what the hell are ya doing?" I didnt even say anything...I just picked my bike up and put it on the side of the road and the whole time he didnt help he just was yelling shit...F#CK
Anyways, this sucks...its beautiful out, sunny 13 degrees and I just started to go for a ride. Im OK, neck is a little sore...but I seem alright... I had on my boots, gloves, helmet, and jacket so I was prepared.
I dont know if Im going to go through ICBC for my bike, Ive got a spare right hand fairing, turn signal, ...I would have to pay for the bird cage...or maybe I can bend it, and I headlight...arrrghh, I dont know...Im pretty pissed right now, wish I didnt pull in behind that idiot, or just went a different way altogether.
Any advice would be appreciated, Ive never been in an accident (there goes my 20% discount)
Also, can I fight that at all, I mean, it was my fault I hit him, but he had enough room to go for himself, me, and about two cars behind me...I still dont know why he stopped.
