On Legion Fund Run today and not sure what this inexperienced woman Harley rider was thinking. I was told she hit the throttle instead of brake. Not sure how you do that on a bike, but she really walloped me good. She had no business being in the middle of 40 bikes and doesn't know how to ride.
I was the 10th bike in the line to pull out in staggered formation and a STOP sign coming up in a few hundred feet and WAM i got hit in the right rear and shoved me forward. She hit panel between the black center piece and saddle bag and needs new one. The right muffler is scratched and took the hit. No exhaust leak but not sure how the muffler is attached and if any damage further up the line. Will try and get estimate ASAP. State Farm agents secretary that is both our insurance was riding her own Harley so that is good and was there to see what happened.
The gal that hit me glanced off my bike and hit another but just left paint on his crashbar. The people behind said she really hit me hard and was surprised i didn't go down.. Yep, she hit me hard and she went down. All i saw in my mirror was the bottom of her bike laying crossways in the road and thought it was on top of her. It wasn't and no visible injuries to her, but she was really shook up.
Knocked my Garmin GPS off and cracked the screen so i need to get it fixed too.
Like they say "Could have been worse".
Can i say this on here?
I was planning on making the Nassir 10-July 11-13, but can't make reservations for anything at this point. BIKE is not the problem as far as i know.
Mud volleyball that i help run on Sunday July 9th and was hoping to leave early Monday July 10th if i can get out of bed. I play and help keep score when not playing and clean up stuff afterwards. Long day for this old man.
