Well i guess it was destined to happen.

Sitting at a stop light waiting and this young girl messing with her phone and not paying attention runs into me. No damage to me or the bike but i am annoyed after i just did a bunch of work over the weekend to my baby and then this happens. I guess i should just be glade no one got hurt and i was able to ride away. This wasn't the first time but i sure hope it will be the last.

You’re a damn lucky SOB to be chatting it up here after being hit by a distracted driver. Damn.

Glad you’re ok! I-phones are becoming one of our worst enemies on the road

Glad no one was seriously hurt. Count your blessings Bro.

I hope this teaches that young girl to put that damn phone down and pay attention. Next time she might really hurt someone.

I’d be happy if I could ride away after being hit. The first time I was hit from behind I walked away but included a stay in with the law. Hoping it never happens again. As a truck driver I see it all the time.

Glad you are ok!

On the road all day, it scares me how many distracted drivers I see.

Glad you’re ok and able to ride away. I work all over the Twin Cities and see distracted drivers all the time. Having been reended twice in my truck I am always looking behind me. And I try not to ride the bike in town. The wife absolutely won’t ride with me in town. Ride safe all.

Glad to hear you and the bike are ok. It really pisses me off seeing people staring at their phones going down the road.
The other day my wife was looking at facebook and started laughing, she said someone made a post that said "Name something a biker says" and someone else had commented on it saying "PUT DOWN YOUR FUCKING PHONE"...she was laughing because she said "yep, you say that all the time". I do, I yell it at them as I'm riding next to them.

i am so glad that everyone is okay. i still get the hairs on the back of my neck standing up when i ride in traffic. i don't wish this to happen to my worst enemy.

i can't believe that there was no damage. none. not even a scratch? did you at least get her daddy's phone number so you could call her parents and let them know what a menace their daughter is on the road and that next time, she, and them may not be so lucky? would suck to have a judgement levied against their house, you know.....

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
