I was lucky. It was still cold out then and I had a leather jacket on. I was still pretty fucked up though. Couldn't walk without extreme pain for a week. Couldn't walk normally for about 2 months. And the fucking piece of shit doctor that gave me a legal medical note....listing my injuries.....just wrote "abrasions". Fucking cock sucking piece of shit. I couldn't walk. I couldn't hold my baby for over a week. Couldn't carry him up or down stairs for a full month. Abrasions....I should give that dr some abrasions.

I'm glad you're OK man. Think yourself lucky you at least didn't have to fight for damages to your Kwaker.
But sorry to be the one to break it to you -- your dog thinks you're an arse. "You want me to WHAT, exactly? Lick it? Shag it? Eat it? Oh all right. But just this ONCE! And that is IT!"

Leaned ower too much last year and the scoother lost grip when the plastic became my main contact to the ground.
I now refuse to go down to the 7-11 on a bike without wearing something that protects. For that reason I bought jackets and pants instead of a one pice suit.
Hope you will heal 100%

Most of the vid you linked to shows (presumably) you talking in a baby voice and waving your big pink sausage at your long-suffering doggie.

*adds another notch to the wall*

When will Taiwanese female drivers stop hitting me with their cars and scooters? I've really had enough of it.
Thankfully this time nobody was hurt, just my poor car. Front drivers side corner is scuffed up. Maybe $1~2k to fix.
The woman turned too sharply and, on a good note, scraped up the entire side of her car. Suffer those costs, wench!
Really, though, why am I involved in so many accidents here? None of them have been my fault to date.

Here is a question.
A one lane road. Two cars waiting in traffic with scooterA in-between. To ride past you would have to ride to the right (side) of the cars which involves riding past in and out of the red no parking line into the man hole/grids/drain cover part of the road.

ScooterA in-between the waiting cars decided to move around the car in front. He slowly approached the right side. A scooterB on the right hand side approached. Seeing scooterA move closer to the right side (scooterA's front wheel in view but not in the path of scooterB which could have ridden on with no contact), scooterB braked on a grid/drain cover, stumbled and skidded about 1-2 meters. ScooterB made no contact with the car to his left or ScooterA apart from a tiny brush on scooterA's foot. ScooterB's rider got up and pulled his bike up. (ScooterB may have had a scooter behind him make contact with him, but it wouldn't have been anything serious). ScooterA drove off.

My question is, (regarding Taiwan traffic laws) is scooterA to blame in anyway here?
What are the laws for this in Taiwan?

Cheers.
