How did you get hit twice?

What were you doing in relation to what was going on around you?

I am not too sure you know how to look out for yourself.

I hope you don't get hit a third time. Your own body might get hit and not just the bike.
Pretty condescending for a first post.

To the OP - hope your luck holds. Personally, I try to keep off roads that have traffic flow high enough where I can't pick up the sound of individual cars approaching from behind, and react before they pass me. I'm lucky that there are enough boony roads where I live that I have that choice.
