I went out to Orient Point today and had a wonderful day of riding until I was almost home and got hit by a car pulling out of the CVS drug store in East Patchogue. That ruined a beautiful day for me. It was a hit and run. The guy took off after hitting me with his BMW. I had two witnesses who stayed and gave information to the police. The impact knocked the front license plate off his car and I gave it to the police. They were going to go after him. I don't know what happened with that.


I am fine, I ended up laying in the street but did not get hurt at all. All my safety gear did its job of protecting me from the pavement but my bike, (Dr. Pepper), is banged up in the front end. The front fender and right lower wind deflector are shot and I don't know about the forks and brake roters. Every thing on the front of the bike is knocked way out of adjustment, mirrors, brake and clutch perches, foot pegs etc. The crash bars and saddlebag protective bars did their job of keeping the bike off the pavement. I was able to ride the bike home. Now I have to wait and see what happens with the insurance company.


Needless to say, I won't be riding for a while.

If his plate got ripped off, he knew he hit you. Hope they nail him. In the meantime, keep the vitamin I nearby. Glad you were wearing gear!

He'll probably swear up and down that he/she didn't realize having hit a motorcycle. Glad to hear that you're doing okay considering the fact that you did get hit. Cross Roads are cool bikes, I know, ask me.:wayhappy:

Aside from the accident God is good Rich. He protected you as well as gave you all the evidence you need to prosecute that runaway driver.
