Wow! What's going on out there!
Glad to hear you're OK (somewhat) and the cager stopped, admitting they didn't see you. Sounds like someone got charged with "distracted driving", as they call it in the Great White North!

Man... I hate to hear these things. As a new rider, it just goes to show that none of us are exempt. Glad you are here to let us know. Sorry about the bike, but after all, bikes can be replaced..you cannot. Hope you heal fast.

So sorry to read this. Very glad though, that the injuries were not worse, and that you still have the good spirits and urge to ride

Heal up quick man.
