i know not to many of us ride this time of year. but I do. so what its cold thats what a heated vest and grips are for. so what it rains, its vancouver learn to ride in it cuz it rains all the damn time.

well 4th and burrard, some dick head cut out infront of me. lay the bike down and took some pretty nasty bangs in it all. there goes my perfect riding record lol.

so i guess this is my friendly heads up. be careful. the phrase, in the words of the guy who cut me off "i didn't see you" is all to common. hope the winter season is finding everyone else in better spirits

Good thing you're in one piece :thumbup

Its dangerous enough on a bike and with all the stressed out people this time of year and heavy traffic not suprising.

I usually ride year round, this is my first Dec. not riding in a while. . .

I did most of my Christmas shopping on a bike to avoid the traffic jams. Saved a lot of time but I did have some close encounters with dickheads in cars. Good to hear you made it out in one piece.

I hope it works out for you with insurance and the bike since you seem relatively okay. I have noticed that drivers are more impatient and aggresive than usual right now before Christmas.

Atleast the guy stopped. And he didn't even blame you for it!
Good to hear you're okay.

good to hear you're ok. Just learn the lesson that sometimes it 100% the car at fault, sometimes it's 100% the rider at fault, but most of the time, there's something both people could have done to avoid the accident. Sucks to drop the bike though - had my first accident last week so i know how ya feel. Hope you had frame sliders :)
