Wow man, glad you're ok! Kudos for being able to keep the bike going after being hit like that. It's interesting how you relate your "sand training" with your reaction during the incident. Maybe I need to practice that too.
Did you get the ******'s license plate number? Did LEO's find him?
I got into a similar experience last year but in my case I did go down at around 45mph when an idiot driver decided to break the laws of physics and tried to occupy the same space I was already occupying. I got back up riding in no time, but really calming my nerves every time I got on the saddle took me a good few months. Yes, now I ride even more defensively than I did before.
Motorcycling: Who said invisibility machines were only science fiction?
Proper motorcycle training is like wearing a helmet. You can ride for 30 years without one and make a case that you've never needed it. Until you do — but then it's too late to make that decision.
