on my way home from a birthday dinner I stopped, first in line, at a light.

I look up just in time to see an SUV run a light and get slammed into by a 4 door car. The SUV starts spinning out of control and heads my way.

I froze.

The SUV stops 4 feet from my front wheel. 4 FEET

I check on everyone, call 911, fill out the police report, then head home. Once home and settled in it hit me that I should have dropped the fucking motorcycle and ran the other way.

Glad to be home and in one piece.

Then I realized you were on a boke.
Good to see you are safe.

Did not seem like it... the dumb bitch that had the right of way was not at fault but had 3 kids under 5 but only one car seat. Two of the kids hit their heads on the windshield.

The lady that ran the light was shook up, pretty too, but her dick of a husband started yelling at her when she called him to tell him what had just happened.

I was way more calm than I thought I would have been after nearly being run over by 2500 pounds of metal.

Loud pipes save lives, I guess.

I wouldn't ride a motorcycle on city streets, ever. I was in California a couple of weeks ago, and the laws there allow motorcycles to ride the yellow line between cars in the middle of highway traffic. I don't know how they haven't run out of motorcyclists yet.

I'm really happy to hear you're okay.

I've never ridden, though I got a ride once. Only once. At only 90 mph.

Scared the crap out of me, and nothing went wrong. I can't imagine what you were having to deal with tonight in the space of seconds...

I've had two friends who've had really bad accidents on their bikes. In both cases it was automobile drivers who did stupid stuff that could have killed them.

With gas prices being what they are, I hope that those of us on four wheels start looking out more keenly for those of us on two wheels. Motorcycles are going to become more popular. We're going to have to adapt.

i'm sure glad you made it out of that wreck with your neck and all is okay

The truth about cagers they never even notice motorcycle riders untill there right up your ass then it way to late to do anything there so use to seeing cars that motorcycles don't even appear to moving to most cagers they can't even judge the distance correctly - the biggest threat is drivers on the DAMN CELL PHONES not even paying attention - more motorcyclist are killed while sitting at a traffic light then there while riding.

You can't think that way though, its easy for someone to say 'you should have just done this' but when you are in the situation, you can't react.

I'm glad you are alright man, its scary when that kind of stuff happens.
Had someone watching out for you on your birthday.

and best of all...hootie would have started stalking you.

yes it is legal in California most of the time its only used while on congested high ways while all the traffic is backed up its been in use for years i believe id dose help as you would notice 5-6 riders riding in a close group then you would when there is only a single rider.

Loud Pipes saves lives, hmm this is such BS drivers could care less how loud your pipes are it doesn't stop them from being completely oblivious to you riding.
They could sit there and see your bright yellow reflective gear/helmet + plus your bright orange bike with loud pipes and see you cross the intersection and still try to run you down making a left and be completely aware the bike+rider and then when the cop shows up he looks at your gear sees what your wearing and sits there scratching his head HTF did he not see you.

My buddy was sitting at a stop sign behind a semi when the semi started backing up. The bike wedged up under the semi and was pushed 32 feet. Lou is damn lucky he wasn't crushed. Motorcycles: You ride them awhile, they ride you awhile.

Wow, glad to read you’re all right.
Drop the bike and run? I suppose, if you’ve got time to think of that.
What about dropping the hammer and getting the f*** away from the entire situation? Could you have shot across the intersection, or turned right or something?
With a motorcycle, your only defense is the quickness of your bike and being up where you can see your surroundings. Just thinking that it might be safer to use the quickness of your bike rather than relying on you feet, is all.

I thought I might in that situation... but thankfully my underwear was clean aside from the normal streaks. :D

As for trying to take off on the bike.... I believe I would have only wound up getting run over. the car was moving towards me at an angle where I could not really do much of anything other than stay put or try to back up.

I wish I had taken pictures but I really did not think about it. Adrenaline was so high that when the LEO told me I could take off I just did.

doubt it, he was stopped at light and thus having a red light would of put him infront of cross traffic and potentially into a worse situation

It's a lot more dangerous now riding a bike because there's just too much traffic now.

My dad's had them all his life until I was born.....he's retired now and thought about buying another one to go on trips with his friends etc but theres just too much traffic where we live and too many fucking idiots on the road that theres no reason to really get one, especially in situations like that you're more likely to hurt yourself......regardless of how good you are riding. Can't count on others to stay the fuck away etc.

Bob Dole's 70 year old father just bought a 250cc scooter to go back and forth to the golf course. Some stupid college girl pulled out in front of him last Thursday and he got to choose whether to t-bone her or lay it down. Thankfully, his road rash isn't too bad.

The girl took off, but later turned herself in at the cop shop.

Bob Dole is still waiting on the photo of Bob Dole's 6'9" high school buddy who rode the 250cc scooter back to the house while they took Dad to the hospital for x-rays.

Happened to me almost 25 years ago. My VW Rabbit vs. an 18 wheeler. I ended up wearing my windshield like a rain coat. It changed my outlook.
