Minding my own business riding home from work when a SUV lost it and took me out. There was nothing I could do...it happened so fast I couldn't avoid it or stop. The police gave her 2 tickets. She was totally at fault. Since then I've been in ERs and doctors' offices and I ended up with broken and dislocated wrist, broken collar bone and incredible soreness everywhere. Note a scrape on me due to ATGATT but it doesn't stop your bones from breaking. Today I will be dealing with what to do with the bike. The person who hit me had insurance so hopefully that will work out. I can't believe an LT forum member saw it! Thanks for all the concern. More info later.
saw my bike today, here is the short scoop:
big scrapes and scratches on front fender, both side cases, faring, bumpers, and top case.
cracked faring, and windshield.
broken j-pegs, antenna, brake lever, muddiman armrest, and moto-light.
bent brake pedal.
headlight is in the bag of goodies picked up from the ground.
both mirrors broken off, not just popped loose.
handlebars are down to just above the tank.
ignition assembly is jammed up/key won't turn.
seat doesn't want to pop up easily? i don't know why.
progressive says total.....i can see why.
chicago bmw says "never saw a 55mph crash that wasn't a total".........
time to let the wheels of justice turn.....
thanks so much for all of your kind words, pm's, and calls. i really appreciate them.
