Smokey, knew what he did.

His own goPro image proved what he did and as an added bonus the wide angle dash cam from the 18 wheeler put this accident beyond a reasonable; who was at fault.

Now onto the information from latest Olympian article. Okay, Smokey claims to work as a courier, his main source transport is a 20 year old motorcycle and he owes $1000 on it?

In the words of Jerry Lewis "That Max no sense!"

I will help Smokey out. I'm a Behavior Specialist. I will give two free sessions and maybe a discount coupon for the MSF course.

Somebody get this kid a bigger shovel. I can't believe this has blown up like it has. There were a lot of comments on the olympian page feeling bad for the kid, so I went and posted a link to this thread, people's attitude seemed to change quickly when given the correct version of the story. By no means am I trying to make this kids life worse, but one less idiot on the road is better for us all.

I'm trying to figure out how he still owed $1000 on that bike. That was the rainbow '96 600 Katana "street fighter" thing from the Craigslist thread.

I purchased my first motorcycle 30 yrs ago with a $1200 loan from the bank, my payments were $25/month so the principal didnt drop very fast. It was the only auto loan I've ever had.

The motorcyclist told Washington State Patrol that he had a Go Pro camera and wanted to "be a good citizen" and catch up with the driver to record his information.
Good citizens stay away from bad drivers and call the police to deal with them.

So far, Dieckman said he has had trouble finding an attorney to take his case because the Acura driver lacks auto insurance.
He can't find an attorney because,
1 He's at fault.
2 He can't afford ridiculous attorney fees. Even if you're completely in the wrong you can find an attorney if you have a big enough bank account. (just ask OJ Simpson)

Quote:
As for the allegation that he is at fault?

“I think that’s B.S.,” Dieckman said. “In a span of 10-15 seconds, I was almost killed three times.”
If the DA was not going to press charges before.. they will now.


I really hope they take your license.. you have no business operating anything bigger than a tricycle.

Impound fees I assume. That bike won't be worth the fees so he's probably lost it

If that is the case, they will auction off the bike and eventually send the bill to a collection agency. (dont ask me how I know.. well.. you want to know anyways..)

I once sold a car for $400 and was too busy to fill out the change of owner paperwork (buyer told me he would do it "right-a-way"). The car was later abandoned and I got stuck with the $500 towing/storage fees after it was auctioned off. I was able to negotiate the fees down to $300, but it was still an expensive lesson.

Sounds like Smokey was also looking for a pay day with going to the hospital as well thinking the aura was at fault. Now he'll be responsible for that visit.

Also hope he has insurance cause if I were the acura driver I'd be going after him for damages to the car.

What a cluster.

Smokey, you're a lucky SOB to be alive and you should count your blessings man. I'm glad you're OK.

If you do get back on a bike I hope you've cooled off enough to learn a couple lessons. You were the only one in this that could have changed your outcome.

Best of luck to you.

My ex wife sent me a link to the video the other day. She is literally the lady who works in the office at the school. NOT a rider. At all. That meme shit gets around. Fucking inter-webs.

But this: "...gives us all a bad name."

Man - just - NO.

When a dude in a pick-up truck does stupid shit, do all pick-up truck drivers somehow legally turn into ass-holes?

Why do we accept that stuff because its motorcycles?

I don't.

Anyone says something like - "Motorcycle riders always...." I tune them right the fuck out and tell them so.

They can say it, but we don't have to own it.

We may not have to "own" it, but the reality is that this crap does effect us all. We need regular people, cage people, to support laws that benefit motorcycles (i.e. red light, lane splitting, etc.). But if this crap creates an attitude in those people that ALL motorcyclists are like that, they won't support those laws. We must remember that we are ambassadors of our sport. What we do is being watched by non-riders and that creates, in their minds, an image of all riders.

This might be the winner for longest string of replies on this new forum.
Some positives to be had then.

When you look at all the videos on the net, this is just another spec of sand video clip.
Lotsa folks do much more ridiculous stuff, this is middle of the road shenanigans in the big picture.
The only difference is it's a little closer to home.
Glad the rider remained relatively unscathed physically, but mentally some damage was done.
