PNWriding at its finest.. He needs BBQsauce and a loose shoelace.

I feel like if PNWdualsports, and PWNriders got together the fallout from the shitastrophy would last for decades.



In other news, my new dirt bike is killer.

Not to beat a dead horse, but complaining "Bastard didn't even bother to see if I was okay." is not rational. I assume you were ride-ready with boots, gloves, helmet and an armored jacket. You almost run into the cager (who may not have even seen what happened behind him), get off your bike and start ranting at him. You really expected him to risk bodily assault (from a guy in full armor) and get out of his car to ask if you were OK.....or even roll down his window? He did exactly what I would have done.....as soon as traffic started moving, put as much distance as I could between you and me.

This. If you rear end someone it's your fault. Period. End of discussion. Man up and admit you are at fault. We've all nearly done what you did at some point while riding or driving.

I low-sided in a roundabout and broke my collar bone because the van in front of me stopped at the exit and I didn't see it until it was too late because I was watching the cars at another entrance to ensure that they saw me. I hit the brakes while leaned over and down I went. Although the van driver should not have stopped it was still my fault because I was probably following a bit too close and did not have time to properly react.

Unless you rear end someone as a direct consequence of them committing a moving violation. I was in the right lane and a car suddenly changed lanes about a foot in front of me and stood on the brakes to turn right. I was not at fault because I wasn't following too closely: one second they weren't in my lane and the next second they were, and going from 35 to 5 in about 3 seconds. Thankfully I was in a car not on a bike, and thankfully another driver stepped up to be my witness -- he saw the whole thing and I think he was even more pissed off than i was. Cop cited the other guy.

I know it's Canadian source but ... I mean ... law constantly changes so depending on the state I could see this being a thing in the USA.

Dude a Corvette did this to me last weekend during a suspension check. I was on his ass and he was clearly going to go through a yellow signal (with me...right there...following too closely)....then...almost as if he almost knew I was there he stops abruptly and waits for the red...dude he dragged that thing down so incredibly fast...it was an "oh shit" moment...I was hard on both front & rear...everthing sliding...but I kept my knees tight up against the tank and was sliding in a perfectly straight line...at the end I had to steer around the back of his car while still in the slide...otherwise I would have at least scratched his paint...

It was really a cool event because I learned a lot about how the bike behaves under super-aggressive braking...

Not true. (I thought the same) Caslaw helped someone I know in a similar situation.

Well, I'm glad to provide some entertainment, and thanks to those that were more understanding *cough* the guys I've actually met and ridden with *cough*. I'm still pissed at the shitty driver, but not going to fuel the drama or apologize. I was away for a few days, but not because of a sandy vagina. Found a great deal on some new gear and enjoying my life in general.
