stupid Cager

Well it looks like my bike will be down for most of the rest of the season. I had an idiot in a car hit me two days ago. I broke my wrist and did some major cosmetic damage to my bike. Luckily From what I can tell there is no mechanical or structural damage to my bike. I do have a few questions though. How can you verify that the swing arm hasn't been moved out of alignment? Has anyone put drag bars on their bike?

Sorry to hear that bro, that sucks. Glad you're alive though and the bikes not too banged up. I hope the recovery goes quickly for you...

What he said!

Every time I see a cager pull some boneheaded play that endangers a biker I just want to stop em', drag em' out of the car and smack some sense into em'

(But we don't act like that in a civilized society. (Which may be the whole problem. ))

Yes, it's my mid-life crisis.

x 10 to what everyone else said. How about some details of the accident. Sorry you broke your wrist - that sucks. But we're glad your personal injuries were limited, as they could have been much worse. But for the grace of God...
