I received a 1986 VN750 from my brother. It is in excellent shape. So I took a Motorcycle safety course got my license with the dmv. Today was my first day that I rode into work about 12 miles. At the light to leave my neighborhood I got rear ended by a cadilac. He was right behind me and when the light turned green he hit the gas. I did not even have a chance to move. His bumper locked under my fender but I was able to get it off. He sustained more damage than I did. It just bent my license plate. But it is going to the shop for a checkup just to make sure everything is okay. He said he was running late for his Dr's appt. I rode on into work with no problems and made it home okay.
