I'm on ice for the moment. I got hit on Sunday afternoon. By some half drunken ass hole. He hit me on an angle from behind on the left side. Bike is in the shop. Does not look good they think the swing arm is bent and possibly the frame. I was going to trade my 04 in to get the 06. Now I'm screwed. Thank God I managed to keep the bike up and I miraculously did not go down. I saw the 06 bike that I want but now even if the insurance co. totals my ride 04 out I will be lucky to get 8k! F'd up bastard. I should have kicked his ass! Guess I am lucky to be alive.

Glad U were able to keep the bike upright and not get hurt, I hope the insurance company pays U off right. U should not be on the short end of the stick, the cager was the one that was drunk. Goodluck on getting yours.

Glad you are OK, that is the main thing! Someone I knew a while back was hit from behind while he was stopped at a robot and he ended up flying through the air and partially paralysed in one leg! Life takes a 360 degree turn when this happens.

WHOAAAAAA.....Shouldnt his insurance cover everything. Your bike, Your medical, Dont settle so quickly. Thats what his insurance wants - a quick settlement. Think dude. My sister settled once and 4 months later had to have back surgery.

Glad you are OK

Dayum dude, hate to hear that. Glad you're ok (for the most part). Bikes can be replaced; just be thankful you were able to start this thread. Here's hoping for a fast recovery. :beer:
