First accident.

still here.jpg
before.jpg
rear.jpg

so i was riding down 1092 (morphy rd) coming back from work and not speeding or doing wheelis like i always do.... this time i was been CAREFULL! so i was going back home and some dude pulled out in the middle of the road, right in front of me at the last second. hit the side of his car and that was the last thing i rememeber.
i have a gsxr 600 and by baby R6 07.!!
there are alot of people outthere that dont give a shit about bikes, dont see ya or if they do is like you are not even there.
one thing i lear from this accident is to make sure that you have really good insurance, beacuse if it wasnt for the people that stop to help me i would have been fked beacuse the guy left and then he came back beacuse the people got the license plate at that time, i got a fractured pelvis and tail bone, i was wearing full gear like always. safe my ass. no road rash .
thanks for reading my story i just wanted to share!!

bummer man, but hey, bikes can be replaced, you cannot. good job wearing your gear. broken bones suck but roadrash is a real bitch.

thanks guys for your comments.... i am back on my feets and back on my wheels. i been riding my r6 last weekend, a little scary at first but with time ill be back where i was at on leaning and taking them corners the way its done!! lol
thanks guys and ride safe and be safe. most of people on bikes get hit because they just dont see you outthere is what they said. i got full exhaust on my r6 and allways ride with my high beam, how the F#$% they dont see you??? but anyways cars in the streets are like cones all you have to do is miss them, in and out of them. lol
thanks guys!!!
