I just got a call from STLTGR (Ben) who said he and his girlfriend (Megan) were waiting for a traffic light in a left turn lane when they were struck by a vehicle, and the vehicle didn't stop. But there was another motorcyclist that observed the accident and followed the vehicle and possibly the idiot that was driving the vehicle was taken into custody. Ben and Megan were both wearing their gear. Ben was wearing his leather vest and ended up with some road rash on his arms and is pretty sore. He had just gotten out of x-ray when I talked to him so hopefully he has no broken bones. Megan is really sore, and Ben said the sissy bar backrest took a big shot and probably kept Megan from sustaining more injuries. Ben thinks his 9 is totaled, but he is insured to the MAX. Hopefully they actually did find the person that did this. I am sure Ben will be adding his perspective as soon as he gets home and has a chance to rest for a while. I just wanted to make sure everyone knew so you could be thinking about Ben and Megan. Get well soon bud.

Wow, I'm sorry to hear that and hope Ben and Megan will be OK. Ben used to work for the same company that I do and we had some good talks at the meet.

Prayers sent for both of them, and I hope they find or have found the driver.

Dammit! Thankfully Ben and Megan sound like they are going to be ok. What the hell is wrong with people? It's getting rediculous. My thoughts are with you Ben and Megan. Heal well and soon.

WTF? Ben cannot catch a break. I just wonder what are some of these people that we share the road with are thinking:dontknow:. I hope that both, Ben and his GF are doing well. At least it wasn't worst. Material things can always be replaced but it just makes you wonder if it is really worth it. I hope the guy pays dearly for having left the scene without any regards for a human's life and well-being:nojoke:.

Get well soon, glad you were not hurt too bad. I just don't understand what people are thinking. Having an accident is one thing, turning it into a possible fellony is another. Plus the disreguard for another person!

Dumb a$$ drivers like this numbnut really tick me off!!:edit: Cases like these should be treated as attempted manslaughter ... we're not talking about some fender-bender. :edit::edit::edit::edit: A-HOLE!

What a gigantic BAG OF DOUCHE!!!! Some people have no business being on the road. And we motorcyclists are the ones who pay the price for their f'n stupidity. :verymad::edit::swear::cus:

I truly hope Ben and Megan heal up quickly. :pray:
