bodyline said they will fix it aug 9.. just more money for no reason, because some guy decided to hit my truck and drive on
I don’t think he decided to hit your truck.
He just decided to not be responsible for it after he did.
It’s too bad people cant just kick someone’s ass when they really deserve it these days.
Folks would be a lot more polite if they knew there was a serious ass kicking coming to them if they aren’t .

Personal responsibility is so 1970's, or was it 1940's?

In any case the newest generation of "bikers" who pull wheelies at 70 and stop freeway traffic have brought
doushism to a whole new level. Expensive motorcycles reduce the numbers, but most ride like pricks.

Welcome to Kalifornia. Lane splitting is legal in Kalifornia! The Kalifornia's way is to legalize that which is illegal if politicians cannot figure out a way to enforce the law and legalizing criminal behavior benefits the leftist/socialistic/democratic cause.

I was stopped in traffic, in the middle of the lane.. lol.
In your dually. In the fast lane. That is reserved for Priuses going 55. How quickly you forget the SoCal ways.

Seriously though... that f'n sucks. And agree about the money for no reason. If it makes you feel any better, he sounds like a shitty rider and might not make it much longer.

We are going to start requiring a "Lane Splitting Card". There is a quick 4 hours course and then you get your card. You don't need it if you rent a motorcycle though.

Hell yeah let’s push this legislation through because some asshole didn’t stop.
I mean, it might kill more riders but at least it won’t hurt your feelings anymore 😂

It's a choice to ride a motorcycle, and it's a choice to be a shit bag and run, if some riders weren't shit bags we wouldn't be reading this thread.

This particular rider being a shit bag is irrelevant to the fact that intelligent lane splitting is much safer for the rider than sitting in traffic waiting to get rear ended

What really sucks is most of the motorcycle riders have their GoPro filming from their helmet during commute. They probably delete evidence of wrong doing when they get home.

All it takes is one dumbass to screw it up for everyone, it's as simple as that. You won't see it because it's obvious you are a rider and when you run it's not your insurance that goes up, no biggie 👍

Bummer. Get it done under radar so it doesn’t get a car fax.

Get a dash cam. The way people bold face lie today it can be a valuable tool.

I see often dual rear wheel trucks with damaged fenders, they do stick out. maybe those tight turns getting into taco bell drive thru ????

So you’d rather kill a motorcyclist than cry because you didn’t give a motorcyclist enough space to go by and they hit you? Gotcha 👍🏻

I’m not saying what he did was right. I’m saying you’re a fuckwit for advocating for more laws that will kill more riders

I suppose if nothing else is learned from this thread, it’s that a dash cam might come in handy for making some one that could have owned up to a mistake, pay more for the experience😎

Dashcam(frt&rr) footage turned into your insurane might have helped.

Incorrect assumption, I am not a rider on the street. Just pretty obvious that being able to intelligently lane split is the safest for the most vulnerable folks on the road.

People will hit and run regardless of if lane splitting is legal or not.

Not saying this applies to you, but I would say a good chunk of the resentment from car drivers towards lanes splitting motorcycles is either from them getting scared shitless by someone who isn't safely lane splitting (will happen whether or not it's legal) or from a general resentment that they don't have to sit in traffic.

This. I have a f/r cameras in my V that is plugged into the obd port for power. Cord is hidden very well under the head liner and down the pillar and under the dash. It even has a bump detector that is mounted to the upper front windshield so if someone backs into you from either direction it starts recording. Auto on and auto shut off after 10 min so not to drain yore battery. Total investment was about $150 and self installed. It would pay for itself 10x over if the footage was evidence and they had insurance...
Just gotta put it in the truck now.
