    I was sitting at a gas station. The guy behind me was in a small convertible waiting in line. I looked behind me before I was to proceed to back up. I didn't see him because my truck sits up so damn high. As I am backing up a I hear,"Whooaa!" I get out of the truck just to see the hood of his car destroyed and my truck's bumper doesn't have one scratch. lol

    EDIT: My hitch dented the car's hood pretty good.

    Dude, hate to call u out, but as someone who owns a Miata and is looking to buy a motorcycle I do not find the humor in your post at all.

    well when you get your cycle i suggest to be as loud as possible in traffic so people are aware that there is somthing loud around them.

    Hard for a motorcycle to be loud when it's shut off to be filled up.



    Or these: They work REALLY good. Starts beeping at 7 feet and the beeps increase the closer you get. Steady beep means you are going to slam any second now.

    Lol you drive a miata.....and let me guess you'll be one of those motor cycle riders who is all about laud ass pipes that are annoying that save lives cuz were always passing people while we lane share so quickly they never see us comin.

    I thin it's funny since no one was hurt but yeah ya need a back up cam now OP to save your insurance rates lol

    1. You shouldn't have to.

    2. Once you start up that bike to move it to go inside, the proprietor will think you are going to do a run. Why stress out someone?

    I drive a Miata too. One that I have invested quite a lot of money into.

    Learn how to drive your damned truck.

    its whatever though...no need to bicker about it. it was an accident...thats why they are called accidents and i dont think he would of killed anyone backing up at the wopping speed he was doing.....anyways if your standing aaround not paying attention enough anyways you deserve to be hit (not the car the person)
