When: 23/07/2008 19:00

Where: Paris, Outer loop belt (Peripherique Freeway)

What: A car pull left to change it's line and hit my C1 on the right side. I immediately countersteer so I could get back in line and stop safely.

Damage: Right fairing on both front and rear panels, right turn signal, exhaust shield, dashboard right corner

Driver told me she did not see me :(

Fortunately  my faithfull second C1 will carry on with my daily commuting while the unlucky one will get repaired :)

Very sorry to hear about you 'mishap' & glad you're ok, but why leave it a year to tell us??

Oops, 2008 not 2007. So three days ago :)

All happened so fast, I didn't even had the time to think to avoid the car. In the meantime I must say I felt amazingly safe inside the C1.
