Sad news. After 65 days of owning my first beautiful bike an SUV tried to make a left thru me. Lawsuit pending. Thanks to good gear, I am unbroken, but my 09 New Bonneville is a total loss. Now I'm healing and saving for another.
May the riding Gods watch over you as they did me.
Walt - Glad that you're ok - that is the important part. Get another bike ASAP and keep on riding. And remember the two rules of riding that I've taught to my kids - 1) they're all out to kill your, and 2) none of them see you. Good luck.
That sucks very intensely. 65 days, [email protected]! Not even fully broke in yet. While you work the lawyers, will you be getting any love from your insurance? While getting the other person to pay for their indiscretion is wonderful, you are still bike-less. Thank goodness for good gear. Incidentally, did you go and get a full top to bottom check-up from a doctor. You need to ensure that you are indeed fully in one piece, with no sneaky injuries that could plague you later.
Thanks for the support and well wishes. I may have a new one very soon. Geico took care of it, but I still lose about 1K in the deal. Thanks to a few friends making sure I knew the law, I kept Geico from screwing me out of 2K.
Can't talk about the suit yet, but after doing a flip, I looked up to get the license plate as the car drove off. So keep your fingers crossed.
Meanwhile saving up for another down payment. I just loved that new bonny look and the EFI.
