Finally got hit for the first time today. This is my first ride since moving to Huntsville AL. I end up hit within riding a mile!! Actually, it couldn't have gone better. It was low speed at a T intersection behind a strip mall. I was turning left from the middle of the T and i was hit from the right. There was a pine tree obscuring both my and the motorist views. Overall, I would say I was more at fault.
I was able to get up right away while the driver helped with my bike and bag. Another driver stopped and took down all the information for me. The driver who struck me gave me and my rig a ride back to my hotel. She was very apolagetic and wants me to call even if there is nothing wrong just to let her know how I am. She owns a salon and wants to give me a hair cut.
So far, there seems to be nothing wrong. My hand got a little smushed between the bars and the car. The steam spun around within the threaded headset and the brake spun on the bars. I'm not sure if the bars actually bent or not. Right sholder is a little sore, but not bad.
Of course I knew I would get hit eventually. i'm just wish they all could go this well.
