    While I was in traffic stopped at a light, a woman on her cell phone rear ended me at 40 mph and pinned me under her car. I was able to pull myself out from under her car and bystanders drug me to the center divider....

    Man! Glad you ended up being OK. What happened to you from an injury perspective?

    either way it is good that you made it out of that cluster fuck looking situation.

    Looks like insurance may be buying you a new bike....and your kids college fund too.

    How are you doing Five Five????
    Pics look bad. Good to hear what you have written that you were able to move and people helped you further on. Lets us know what injuries you are having. A terrible scene no doubt....
    Enough to make the family cringe and me too.....
    Hang in there and be strong..

    Really glad you are OK enough to let us know. I know the feeling, I was rear ended almost a year ago by a drunk and got my feet run over. I'm a pretty tough guy but I still find myself a bit anxious anytime a vehicle gets behind me. Take your time and heal up. Again, glad you are OK as can be. Keith

    55, that's gotta hurt.
    Glad to hear your OK, busted ribs and i bet a few graizes and bruises.
    I hear all the time that woman can multi task, but screaming at the kids in the back, driving a car, talking on the phone and smoking all at the same time has me shaking my head, i see it at least once a day.
    Guy's just seem to drive, talk on the phone and perv................still gets us in the shit.

    I see a new (see old) BD replacement, looks like you headlite and battery are ok.
