Sorry to hear about your accident. hope you are ok. can't believe that bicyclist didn't even bother to look before cutting you off. he's lucky that he doesn't live in the states, he wouldn't be getting up so readily.

the wonder is that's he's around at all to have cut across you. Not so much as a glimpse. Hope the crash bars did their job.
well, it was a 12.000 INR damage because the rim had to be replaced and one of the front fork struts too, and the lamp, handlebar and grip.
But fortunately this being India it amounted to only 150 bucks.

I was not entirely innocent though, I had started at 5am from Jammu wanting to reach Rishikesh the same day which is insane given the road conditions here. So I was a bit tired and exhausted, otherwise my 6th sense would have probably kicked in as it usually does. One just cant survive this traffic without it :)

Yep, that's when I'm most vulnerable, when I'm tired after a long day in the saddle and stressed by conditions.
