I was sitting at a red light on my scooter. The light changes and I start to pull off. The next thing I know, I am being shoved HARD from behind. I glance over my shoulder and see the bucket of a front end loader is wedged inbetween the tail light and top box rack on my bike. The guy was not slowing down at all. I realised if I didn't take evasive action I was going to be killed. I gunned the accelerator and turned the nose of the bike away from the front end loader. I managed to get the bike unstuck but he clipped the back and I spun out into the next lane. My bike fell and so did I! Hard! All I remember is my helmet cracking the tar. Next thing I know I am on my hands and knees severely winded. I managed to haul myself up. I lovely man had stopped and he picked up my scooter and put it on the pavement. The driver of the front end got out and when he saw I was "OK" tried to just leave! The man who picked up my bike called him back and held him by the arm until he gave me all his details. The owner of the company that employs him is being very nice about it and will be repairing my bike! I am pretty banged up, I have badly bruised ribs, my whole right side is a network of roasties and I have a very stiff neck. Basically everything hurts!
