    ''...I got into my first accident this week. I was riding my friends bike while he was out of town (he let me borrow it) and I was driving around my block and a truck ran head on into me while he was attempting to make a left turn.

    He was cited, and was at fault according to the police report. My friend has full coverage on the bike, and I have my M1 permit so I was all legal, and I wasn't speeding or wreck less driving or anything.

    I have a fractured arm, broken wrist and thumb. As well as road rash and cuts/bruises EVERYWHERE. My groin slammed into my tank pretty hard (i don't remember much from the accident) but it has been hurting pretty bad for the last few days making it hard to walk.

    I had about $1200 worth of gear I was wearing, all messed up as well as my new 300 dollar cell phone I got the day before..."
