Rear-ended in Oakland

I was on my way to another rider's memorial service in Oakland yesterday, but as it turned out, I never got there. I hope it was healing for all the folks who went--his was a huge loss. Aaron was a local motorcycling fixture, member of the East Bay Rats, and one of the bright faces at Godspeed, an Oakland moto repair shop/tattoo parlor/etc.

I turned on my blinker and stopped at a light to turn left (in a downtown single-lane construction zone), giving my usual tap-tap to flash my brakelight as I stopped. I glanced in my mirror to check for approaching cars, and saw them a block or so back. I glanced again, then switched my attention to the oncoming cars as the light turned green. The oncoming cars cleared, and I was about to start my turn.

I never saw it coming.

They say that when you're shot, the bullet that catches you knocks you down before you hear it. As for me, I was thrown into the air, flipping backwards through space as my bike rocketed forward, propelled by the bumper of the car behind me. I didn't understand; what was happening? I hadn't let my clutch out...where the hell was my bike going, without me? My feet caught on the mirrors, or perhaps the grips, stopping my spin and throwing me to the asphalt. That's when I heard the impact, the crunch. And then another--the bike crashed over on its left side, snapping off the bar end and the clutch lever, bending the handlebar, crushing the engine guards, stoving in the gas tank, bending the stems of the mirrors. I realized, ah, I've been hit from behind, just as my back and my head slammed into the pavement. Gear, oh sweet gear, beloved full leathers, and a good helmet who took the impact instead of my skull, I'm glad I wore you.

Before I understood what I was doing, I leapt up, then nearly fell down again. I stood in front of the crumpled bumper of the ancient beater Mercedes that had just asspacked me, as the woman behind the wheel stared back in horror. And just then, the bikes behind her, fellow riders just leaving the memorial, pulled up. One blocked the Mercedes' possible escape path. The others guided me off the street and helped calm me, reminding me to sit down, assess myself to see if my neck was injured before taking off my helmet, get the car's license number, call the cops. They gathered up the broken parts and set them near the wounded bike. We had a good long time to shoot the breeze, since Oakland PD required 3 phone calls and an hour to show up. The bruises and throbbing aches started to set in, the headache, the bruised knee. But really, I was miraculousy unbroken, considering the impact. And the bike, being a Honda, started and was able to limp the short ways home.

To the other riders Chad and Aaron, both of whom stopped, picked my bike up and rolled it off the street, pulled in front of the cager's car to prevent her from running, and waited around for something like an hour and a half to give statements to the cops: you are gentlemen and scholars, both!

To my sweetheart, who came to the crash site with tools to get the bike in shape to take home, escorted me back to my place, fed me dinner and rocked my world despite my bruises and pains: you are the best!

Today, I'm sore to my bones, aching, and moving is an unwelcome chore. I was very bummed that I didn't get to pay my respects, but I am glad as all hell to be alive and walking.

The Givi engine bars took a serious hit and protected the cases well.


Some of the other damage: dented tank, broken blinkers, bent footpeg, busted license bracket and aftermarket helmet holder, broken clutch lever, twisted/scratched mirrors, broken-off Manic Salamander bar end and bent handlebar, dented radiator, possible bent subframe. Sigh.

Hi Nemo,

Very sorry to hear about the accident. But very happy you wore gear and didn't get worse hurt! Nice to see our givi bars earned their keep!

The most disturbing part was the Perp didn't offer assistance or apologies. Unbelievable! That is going to be expensive mistake for Her!

Visit a great chiropractor and get well soon!

Nemo, so glad you are ok and nothing worse happened! What you experienced is one of my all time fears when on a bike I just hate it that we had to live it through you.

Also, kudos to everyone that assisted you.

Got some stock pieces for the bike if you need to get her going.
I won't need them so you can have 'em. Let me know.

Wow Nemo, I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. I'm glad that you're still here to tell the story.
The way you described it is so true - it's crazy how everything is suddenly in slow motion and quiet, and you seem to have so much time to question things while in the air.
Get yourself healed up and your bike put back together, and get back in the saddle as soon as you're able to.

Nemo, Sorry about your accident. It seems from your description that you went above and beyond in making sure they could see you. They must have been distracted in some way to have missed ur flashing brake lights. Glad you are mostly OK and glad you had good people around you to help. Heal up quick!

I'm glad you're okay, buddy. I had an accident about a week ago thanks to some moronic Mercedes driver impatience. Unfortunately, I had few friends to come help me, and am paying out the ass to fix the bike. I hope you're able to get your bike up and running as well as yourself.

Best Of Luck -

Damn...! Heidi. This is not what I wanted to read about you.
I was hoping for something a little more sexy.

I hope any pain you feel goes away quickly & I am ecstatic that you survived this incident in such a great way.
As stated above, we can care less about the bike, But you. Will be cared for forever!

Heal up, & we'll see you back on the track soon.

BTW Photos of "World Rocking" will be greatly appreciated!

Glad to hear you made it through ok.

I liked the write up. And, thanks for the reminder of helmet and gear. I sometimes feel foolish in full gear. Last week I got a hard lesson in helmets while mountain biking. This week the lesson continues with your story. So thank you for sharing.

I can also attest to the fact that surviving moto wrecks (this is the second, unfortunately) is, paradoxically, quite an aphrodisiac...nothing like a good solid object lesson in impermanence and the importance of love and life to get one's juices flowing!

Thanks for the well wishes and parts offers, folks. The clueless driver was insured, and was pretty horrified at what she'd done; even if she didn't offer to help. Heck, this is Oakland...I'm lucky she didn't shoot me!

I'll be taking the bike over to a local repair shop later this week. I'll be getting another HJC CL-SP helmet, too, as it really took the hit well...I have only a concussion and a few bruises, says the doc, after being thrown into the air, with the back of my head coming down on the pavement like the hammer of Thor. Whew.

I'm really hoping the 9er can be fixed, as I was planning a ride across the US next year...but we'll see what the future brings. Since I have a concussion, I'm out of work for the next couple of days...and my excellent girlfriend is taking me to a local hot springs to camp out and relax and heal my abused brain up a bit.

Heidi:
Very sorry to hear of your accident and very glad to hear you are relatively unscathed. It sounds like you'll be just fine after a few days of taking it easy and getting your world rocked -- probably the best medicine possible.

I'm very impressed with your writing, especially so soon after the fact. Your descriptions are a perfect blend of factual and emotional: first rate!

Fortunately the bike doesn't look too bad, at least compared to pictures of other aftermaths posted here recently (ENOUGH CRASHING ALREADY!) and the protection from the crash bars is especially impressive -- they really did their job.

What I usually try to do is look for a lesson in any crash, but other than wearing proper gear in this case the only lesson I can see is $hit happens, well that and no drivers can be trusted to see us no matter what we do.

Take care of yourself, convey thanks from all of us to all the riders who did such a great job of assisting you, and remember to not accept "totalled" from her insurance company even if it takes an attorney to do it. I'm sure she and you will be back on the road in no time.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

You're OK, that' the main thing. Parts can be replaced. Be very stern with thet "lady's" insurance company rep. You deserve compensation for what you've been put thru. You seem to be very intellegent, I'm sure you'll do well.

I think those are the first photos of crash tested Givis here. Looks like they may have saved your engine. As far as the dented tank, you can now have any color you want. I think you should stay green. That color has kind of become associated with Nemo.

So glad you'll be ok. Watch that concussion to make sure something doesn't show up later.
Ditto on keeping the bike green. That's Nemo's color.....

There's your plan and then there's God's plan.........
