Hello,

I just picked up a 2008 Tiger 1050 and 2005 Bonneville T100 this week to replace my R1200GS Adventure that was declared a total loss, thanks to an old guy driving down the wrong side of the Natchez Trace Parkway with a 40 ft fifth wheel. Anyhow happy to be back, owned a Speed Triple before the Beemer and am now addicted to my Bonneville.

Nope, walked away. The Beemer had 24K in damage but I walked away (probably would have been dead except for my addition to wearign full gear) and actually rode it all the way home from Natchez MS to Nashville after the accident.

I didn't know it was possible to do 24k worth of damage to a bike and ride it within less than a month! Heck, for a lot of bikes it wouldn't even be possible to do 24k of damage, period!

I was a little shocked myself but the engine in the Beemer was a stressed member and it got bent... So it needed everything except a new gas tank, forks, handlebars and computer...
