Got into an accident yesterday.

I was out and about in Manhattan minding my own business. Around 144th street, guy in the right lane decides he needs to make an U-turn and turns into my lane. I slam into his left rear wheel and down I go.

The emergency response services was excellent. Thank you NYPD and NYFD and the people at St. Luke's hospital.

Damage wise I have a really swollen left foot and that's it. I haven't seen the bike because they took me away in an ambulance.

I feel lucky. I probably wasn't moving faster than 15mph when I hit him and didn't hit my head. I stayed calm and generally wasn't scared or worried about myself or the bike.

Now I wait for my foot to heal and get the insurance straightened out.

Fred, so sorry about the spill. Even though I've been riding there for nearly 30 years, NYC can be dangerous! Hope your back up in no time!

That's not pretty to read about. I hope you get well soon and get your Brute fixed ASAP. I know exactly how you feel.

Cool

I feel with you. I've been there. It's like a maelstrom of emotions and you wish you could turn the clock back. Glad you're allright, hope the bike is relatively allright!

Sorry to hear that, Fred. But I'm glad you're fine. But look on the bright side of things - this could be your golden opportunity to redeem yourself by getting rid of that Brutale and getting a real man's bike: a F4.
