The same thing happened to me on Northern Bouelvard in Great Neck. The bus I was operating was headed east just p[past Jayson Avenue, going about 20mph. The idiot motorcyclist, who had a female on the rear seat riding with him, attempted to make a U-turn in front of the bus, hit the right front, and were knocked down. As they both lay on the ground next to the crushed motorcycle, the man bleeding from both ears and the girlfriend screaming at the top of her lungs, I just calmly secured the bus and called for assistance. Not my fault, of course. Anyone who challenges a bus or other large vehicle is almost certain to come out a loser.....
