    I'm a cowboy without a horse

    Taking the bike from Staten Island to Brooklyn and wouldn't you know someone rear ended me pushed me into the car in front which twisted the bike sideways and she ended up on top of me. 4 years to get it just the way you want it looks like she is gone. Going with a tow truck to pick her up and assess the damage. Lots of oil on the road may have crankcase damage.

    Sorry to hear that news. Hope the insurance company is fair enough to you that you can get a newer better replacement.

    That is always such an ugly sight!! Glad you are okay. Riding in traffic always makes me really cautious, but you never know what cages are going to do. Then again, my big accident several years ago was out in the middle of nowhere with no cars around. Sometimes the odds catch up with us. Hope all works out okay.

    Interesting that the right rear of her car looks to be a mess also...almost like she got rear-ended also.

    Was that the Gothels bridge?
    Man I am just glad you are OK.
    You and I know what the insurance guys
    are going to say.
    What I am going to say is sue the bastards and make the decision
    That you and I both know you have to make.
    Sue first then make your decision later after having a heart to heart
    with both your wife and then yourself.
    In it with ya bro.

    Damn sorry , your bike was one of the nicest, best sounding bikes on this site. Glad you are ok, Get back on the horse! Get you another one! Insurance should give you something for pain @ suffering?

    Does NY have that damn NO Fault insurance scheme?

    Verrazano, had this bike been smaller, lighter or narrower it would definitely been another story. The bike saved my life because had it been narrower I would have definitely been under the car. It is that wide design that stopped the bike from going under. Went to pick it up with the tow truck crankcase cracked open, busted up all over. I know I'm OK and alive but the hours I spent with that bike...damnit. It was pitiful the way it was laying there in the parking lot, they didn't even have the decency to put it on its' stand. Anyway, the INNOVV front and back camera system did its' job perfectly. Here's a link to see the front and rear action as it happened:

    BTW the wife said in the hospital if I even think of getting another one she will call the lawyer immediately, discussion closed.
