She claims she was busy rolling a cigarette and looked down for just a second...right before she smacked me at a stoplight.

The day is already shot tomorrow for dealing with insurance estimates. FML

Rolling a cigarette? A Did she mean joint? That would explain her poor reaction time and zoning out. Glad to hear that you are okay.

Let me get this straight, she readily admitted to you that she was "rolling a cigarette" before she hit you!?

Wow I probably would have lipped off somethin' fierce.

Glad you aren't hurt. Get you bike fixed right or replaced.

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

SAFE AUTO. I've seen their commercials on tv. Now I guess I'll find out if they're a decent company or some fly by night operation.

Hahahahaha - Just trying to sell a bike

Also, after riding and owning just about every type of bike their is, after riding SM, I can honestly say (to me) it is the most fun and economical - That and I have yet to ever hear anyone ride or race one and say, "Meh, not really for me" so just trying to spread the love

Preach on brotha! No objections from me, I just found it amusing. If I had the time and money to actually ride, I would've bought one long time ago based solely on your doctrine.
