Hi all, just thought I'd let you all know................I got hit by a car on Friday. I was waiting at a pedestrian crossing, and a twat in a car drove straight into the back of me............bike might be written off, just waiting to find out, I'm sort of ok, no broken bones, but lots of sore muscles!

That sucks man. At least the driver of the car wasn't going faster, things could have been much worse. I can't believe how some people just don't pay attention while driving. Glad to hear you're ok.

Glad you are ok. When I got rear ended my bike went under and ripped all of the pans on the car (oil and trans). You are lucky. Well good luck with the settlement with their insurance company.

I almost got rear-ended once in downtown Louisville. Stopped at the end of a yellow/beginning of a red light instead of trying to run it. The guy behind me must have assumed I was going to try to run it like everyone else does down here. He was kind enough to swerve about 1.5 feet to the right of me and stop, then threw it in reverse and got behind me again...
