  • So this happened this afternoon.

    Decided to take my RSV out for a spin today as I have been neglecting her lately.

    Then an old couple pulled out of a right side street at the last second. Nowhere for me to go. Tried to go around them. Thought I made it but the saddlebag caught the front bumper and spun me around. Left side is scratched up good too when it layed down on the left side after impact.

    Of course the couple said they didn't see me.

    Couldn't believe it. Everyone showed up. 3 witnesses, town police, state police, county sheriff, emt's and fire. Luckily I only have a small road rash on left elbow and sore left ribs but not bad. Probably gonna be much sorer tomorrow.

    I actually road the bike home.

    Just glad my wife wasn't on the bike.

    Damn that sucks. Thankfully you weren't hurt outside some scrapes and bruises. Take it easy for a few days and hope all the insurance and shit goes your way.

        Wow, sorry to hear that. You're probably right, going to be more sore tomorrow. Glad you didn't get hurt anymore than you did.
        Get a box of popsicles for tomorrow, then you can have something to bite on after cooling off.

          Sorry to hear of your about your troubles, good to see you where able to get back on and ride it home, and yes you will hurt more tomorrow but keep moving is the key to a quick recovery.

            Man I’m glad you’re ok. The next couple days are going to be really sore, but try to stay moving like Mort said it really does help. Bike is fixable irritating that it’s messed up but at least you are still here to enjoy it when It’s fixed and that’s what is important.

              Thanks mort. I wish you weren't right on this issue. Ribs already getting crazy sore. Was doing fairly well before I started to rest a little. Tylenol and a lot of ice right now. but the Tylenol doesn't seem to helping much. (hint, hint)

                Glad to hear your okay!! For the pain take ibuprofen it definitely helps. For the road rash use brave soldier ointment it's the best for road rash!!

                    Sorry about your mishap but glad you didn't get hurt any worse. It's a bummer all around but again, you rode home so that's good. Hope you are on the mend soon and insurance treats you right.

                      Glad you came out as slightly injured as you did. With those sore ribs, it'll be painful to breathe at times. Cagers almost always say they didn't see the motorcyclist, regardless of how many lights were on the bike, how bright (or not) the riding gear the bike rider was wearing, etc. Some 'experts' have even tried to explain why the car drivers (cagers) don't see the motorcycles. I don't quite buy it.
                      Riding on the highways in town during this pandemic is insane. Speed limit is 70 M.P.H., and normally you'd be going 80 to be going with the flow. I regularly get passed like I'm standing still. Even increasing speed to 90 doesn't help much, and alot of these fast-moving vehicles are swerving from lane-to-lane. You only see law enforcement after an crash..
