    Default My bike (Lillie) vs scooter

    Lillie won!


    I've attached a diagram of the accident.





    I'm heading northbound on Riverdale St, West Springfield (blue line). I have the green light, so I'm going with the flow. At point "X-1", I collide with the scooter (red line), which had run the red light to turn left.

    Because of my MSF training years ago, I never went down, but I could see parts flying and the kid getting back up in my mirrors. I also see one lady parked on the side halfway between us and another lady helping the kid up to his feet.

    When I walk back to the kid, his back is to me and he jumps back on his scooter and starts it up. I've already been in a hit and run in the past, so I get PISSED and tell him to get off and shut the engine.

    He doesn't and ride off (dotted red line) and disappears behind the McD's. Since there's a barrier in the middle of the road, I can't ride and chase him down. I wait for the police, give them my statement, and ride home.

    The shifter was bent, and THAT'S it. His bike is TOTALED!!!

    Good girl Lillie.... now go get the other fcuuking scooter riders.

    Here in the WONDERFUL state of Mass, small scooters don't need insurance, plates, or special licenses.

    I'm thinking about making a mission to change that.... 'cause scooters cause accidents too.

    It's the same here in CT. I'm really shocked no one has run for office on the platform to require it. I'd vote for them.

    I f-ing hate those scooter riders and think its crazy they are allowed on the road. There are quite a few around here and they are always screwing up traffic. They need to get them off the road.

    Sorry about your accident. Glad you came out ok.

    Long story short, I pushed (yes pushed lol) a scooter rider off when I was riding my CBR because we were taking a left and he came to the inside to pass me - when our bars collided and it almost sent me off I reached out and pushed him in the shoulder and he went for a ride. Being the gentleman I am, I stopped to ask if when he lowsided he was okay he didn't even feel me push him.
    Sold.
