So what a crappy day, not only was it 30 degrees out, but I was hit by some idiot and it was the last 20 minutes the bike was out for the year.. went to fill the tank at the gas station and add fuel stabilizer. when the guy backed his car up and I was under it with my bike dumping oil and still idling onto of me..
After the guy noticed he ran me over he came around to the back of the car and just stared at me looking dumb.. I let out a horrid scream "GET THE FU****G BIKE OFF OF ME" he just stared I yelled it again finally he snapped to and helped me lift it up.
Broken right hand, damaged my already damaged lower spine (surgery is required), fractured left leg shin area. top all that off with the fact I'm handicapped and have what is called Type 3 Von WilleBrand disease (I'm a bleeder, its the most severe form of Hemophilia) But I'm alive, and the bike is repairable.
Now around here in Detroit Michigan there is only one maybe two Triumph dealers within a hour from me, and its freaking freezing out and I'm beat to hell from the accident.. How can I get a estimate on the damages? shouldn't I only take it to the dealer to be repaired, seeing as the bike has ALWAYS been repaired at the dealership maintenance book shows that. I want the best repair from a Triumph retailer cause that's all I ever put into that bike was the best I'm sorry for the rant in alot of pain still meds have me loopy.
result from this
How much does a new lever cost? I think I may need a front end adjustment seemed a tad cockeyed when I rode it home?
Here are a few of the other minor damages, it doesn't even begin to show what the scene looked like got away easy cosmetically. What do you guys think a ruff estimate would be to fix the shown issues, New brake handle, alinement, New or repaired fairing, and paint issues. she was a gem before this not one scratch fresh coat of wax the day before
I'm at a loss for words so I thought I would vent with other Triumph riders, like minded people..Thanks for reading be safe everyone people dont know how to look for bright yellow bikes with loud exhausts.. or any bikers for that matter. Man after previewing this post the pictures just don't explain how serious this was..
