I was REARENDED Tuesday on my 749

  1. Lovely day in SF, headed E-bound on 14th St in the left lane,
    when all of a sudden I notice that I am in flight and no
    longer on the bike. Landing was as good as a high-side
    tumble can be, and I was properly dressed, though Mr. Arai
    took a fairly hard bump. As I was sprawled on the pavement,
    a guy in an SUV started cursing at the female driver who
    ran into me, since she had apparently cut him off a few
    blocks back. She had the nerve to say something like
    "you should look before changing lanes" and I almost lost
    it. I just said I was in the #1 lane for at least a block,
    and I might have changed positions in the lane, but please
    just show me your license, insurance, registration, etc.

    The Duc looks to be in bad shape, dunno what the insurance
    will do. I would like to go after her, so recommendations
    on a good MC lawyer and doctor would be helpful.

    I took a look at the bike yesterday, and decided to pick
    up a red Multistrada, which in my very sore condition I
    can ride, unlike a SBK. It has these things called
    "handlebars" and looks as if two up riding is comfortable,
    and I got it with hard luggage. Oh, and very flashy, I
    got a Mick Doohan replica Arai Quantum II -- "Doohan OK!"
    The MTS1000DS is a bit like driving a station wagon after
    the 749, but station wagons have a purpose. I hope to
    get the other bike back soon. Though there was a 999S
    at Munroe that looked nice.

  2. Hope you also got some info from the guy she cut off. Sounds
    like a pretty good witness. Really glad you're more or less OK.

    Talk to Mike Harwood, he did a good job for me.

  4. did you have collision? if so, your insurance company will be more than
    happy to 'go after her'.

    otherwise, ugh, lawyers will cost significant, if you don't have serious
    bodily injury, it may be hard to collect more than physical damage and
    actual medical expenses, which won't pay the lawyer bills.
