Looking for witnesses: Putty rd, hit and run, Sunday 23/01/11

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Respi, Jan 24, 2011.

  1. Guys i was hit by a rider passing me on the inside of the first slow speed bend about 10km's heading north of the half way house. All I remember was he was in a group of 5/6 riders. The others passed safely prior to the turn.. This idiot didn't, colliding with me forcing me into the Armco where I then got pounded by a direct hit of an 230kg bike. Other rider had All black leathers older style green kwaka with blue plates.



    Got airlifted to Newcastle and had screws and plates inserted. On my iPhone writing this so apologies for lack of grammar and spelling. I know it's a fricken long shot but Please pm me if anyway hears talk of a dude fitting the description of a massive goose.

    Cheers

    Mate that's shocking, this person who collided with you sounds like a total gumby. Best of luck with the recovery and getting this sorted.

    this has been reported to the Police, of course?

    I hope they catch him and tar and feather him, the selfish git.....

    Yes mate it has been. I think he panicked and legged it.. His mates are the ones I'm appealing too as he would no doubt have been shook up by this and they would have noticed him acting a little ghostly I'd say.

    Dorsoduro 1200 following a mate on a BMW gs with nobbies. Clearly not out to tear the road up.

    Thats disgraceful, even if there was no contact and you only wobbled around not hitting anything (but stopped) I would have thought it common courtesy to double back say your apologies and make sure everyone's ok. Your case was even worse since you actually came off and have a major injury. Hope you find this guy mate, we dont need these dangers on our road.

    By the way, are you talking about this tight bend? or further up closer to Milbrodale?

    where and when did it happen? Myself and Mav went to the new restaurant for lunch at around 2 something. I thought I overheard someone say something about an accident but these guys weren't wearing black.

    I can't say anything that hasn't been already said. I can only add my wishes for you to get well soon and to a standard you will be happy with.

    All the best.

    Hope he comes to his senses and comes forward.

    Not that it changes anything, was it the Aprilia media/demo bike?

    If it was a zrx1200 there probably aren't many around with blue plates.

    Heal well.

    Actually, it was.

    A near miss is a hit.
    A miss is a miss.
    A near hit is a miss.
