Crashed Today

I'll keep it short because i'm hurting right now. Coming down PCH today slow speed BMW decided to make a U-Turn while i was coming along side of him. Wss able to lock up the brakes and and hit the car at an angle instead of head on the wheel well hit the side of my right knee i could feel the knee just give in from the pressure.the bike bounced to the left and he was still turning into me and i went over the hood of the car.Left wrist hurts like hell,can't put weight on the knee,left shin has a knot like a grapefruit and right ribs are sore. Was able to ride home but needed help getting in the house so i'm here on the couch. I had the video camera going but i guess the hit messed it up that footage and some other were unable to retrieve.The bike faired pretty well thanks H/B crash bars. the brake pedal was bent didn't take a photo of that. it was a great day up untill that moment.

Definitley get checked out. The sooner treatment starts the better. Did the person take blame for the wreck? Was this a 4 lane section of the road or were you lane sharing?

Good Luck, and I hope you heal up 100%.

Thanks for all the well wishes and PM's. It was 2 lanes both sides.We pulled into the turn lane to go left back to the canyons. But it was residential couldn't pull back into the lane so we were in the little area with the double yellows on each side looking for a spot to pull in. Traffic started to jam up and as i got next to the bmw he tried to make a U-Turn i was on the left side of him. So were both probably at fault.He did tell the officer he pulled into me.He was an older honest guy and kept apologizing to me and brought me water he could tell i was one hurting unit.Both our stories were true and correct as to what each of us had done.

I'm sure the left wrist has a fracture and the knee just caved in can't move it without having someone lift my leg for me. So i'll be heading to the doctor soon.

Sorry to hear about this.... dang cagers!
Glad to see it wasn't worse though, that leg looks BAD! Get to the Doc ASAP

Oh btw, tell me your seat went unharmed!



Edit: On another note the more crashes i see the more and more it looks like those crash bars are well worth it! Would hate to see what the bike looked like without them!

Sorry about the incident, Weljo.
It seems we can't crash on our own anymore but must be assisted by uncaring drivers.

Injuries are best treated while they are hot. Meaning: immediately upon occurring!
The more you wait and let it cool down and swell up the harder it will be to treat it.
Get yourself checked out.

These fukcing things happen.
Get well soon and get back in the saddle.


Cheers.
