    Last year I'm sitting in a pub in Grand Forks and three drunk guys are arguing, very loudly, the proper borscht making technique. I almost joined in.

    Well it was fun while it lasted.

    I was out for a cruise in Ft Langley this afternoon. As I turned right off Glover Rd onto Rawlinson Court the road is a downhill right.

    The Sunbird/Cavalier driver in front of me pulled onto the shoulder and came almost to a complete halt. I pulled out to go around him and then he decided to pull a u-turn, 30' from an intersection that is fairly busy.

    I hit the front driver quarter panel at 20-30 km/hr, over the hood and landed on my right side. Head smoked the ground pretty hard as well as the hip and shoulder. Yay for armored jeans, leather jackets with armor and a full face Bell.

    As I pulled myself off the pavement and the driver appraoched, I questioned his driving ability and decision making process in a rather coarse fashion, and then things started to hurt. Hips, shoulder and neck started first. The driver approached, and only asked for a pen to trade info. Nothing about if I was OK which triggered the spidey senses. his girlfriend jumped in the driver's seat as I popped out the IiPhone and took a pic of the driver and license plate. Thankfully a witness was directly behind and stopped to provide assistance and a statement.

    I called 911 and reported it and then noticed the Sunbird/Cavalier jockeying its position on the shoulder. I went over and talked to the girlfriend who was now driving and the original driver who was now in the passenger seat. Spidey senses tingling stronger now.

    I asked "You really aren't thinking of leaving are you?" Buddy said they were going to the cop shop in Ft Langley. I pointed out that there wasn't one. We went around in that circle for 2 or 3 times and they headed out. I informed him that failing to remain at the scene was only going to make things worse, regardless if he was a prohib or unlicensed driver. I considered reaching in and grabbing the keys, but since I already had a pic of him, his plate and the police were on the way; why expose myself to being dragged down the road? And besides, if a K9 Unit get called in, all the more justice in my eye!

    Off they went with the car driving pigeon toed causing the tires to squeal, since applying 530 lbs of Honda and 200 lbs of rider to the left front tire apparently isn't a load that Chevy originally planned for the mighty Sunbird/Cavalier. A second call to 911 to report him leaving took care of that.

    A Langley traffic member arrived about 2 minutes after they left and started with his end of things. About 5 minutes later he told me that they had stopped the car and located the male who had run off to hide in a construction site. No information at this point of why he ran, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out a few possible reasons.

    So right now I'm sitting at home with a glass of wine, pretty stiff and sore; but all is good. On the way home I saw an Air Ambulance landed on Hwy 1 by 200th St. My little mishap is pretty minor compared to that and the bad guy got caught.

    Ride safe.

    Some Pics:

    This is where the bike ghost rode about 30'-40' and jammed to a halt.






    Considering used top and bottom fairings alone are $1000 a pop before being repainted and the tank now has a dent in it, I can't see it being repaired. It would be nice if it was though!

    Shitty deal. I am totally on the same page as far as pain goes, I dropped my bike on monday coming back from Vegas. I was on 93 in Idaho and hit a puddle of something as I leaned into a slow left. It threw me on the ground and some how I managed to smash my right thumb and right instep. I managed to ride the last six hours home, not sure how as I can't grip anything, but it's going to be costly.

    It's supper crappy that your pretty little bike is probably a write off now, and I am sorry to hear that you are in pain. I hope it gets sorted out for you and that you heal up quick.

    You shoulda just told him what you do for a living, that would have stopped him from running. But nothing like a little light entrapment to make the story juicy.

    So now that you're all banged up, it's time for disability and a nice big ICBC payout. High five! Glad you're okay, too bad for the bike.
