Sorry to hear.

I know this is a little volturish but if you get to the point or selling parts off the bike, I need a front cowl a left peg and some other various parts to fix my hurt bike. :evil6:

I am glad to here that you survived the ordeal. If you need a right blinker(new) or a left rearset (bracket and peg) let me know.

bad luck man. Sorry to hear that. What's the prognosis on your wrist? Are they going to cast it when the swelling retreats and call it good? Or are you going to have to have surgery? Hope you have a full and speedy recovery.

Jeebus, Ross, sorry to hear about this. NOT GOOD. Hope you are feeling better and glad it was not worse. The bike is fixable. You need to get healed up.

Dang Tweak! So glad you are all right! Sounds like one helluva hit to break your wrist?! Take it easy during your rest and recoup time...let your body heal back to normal.

Real sorry to hear another rider down!! I keep forgetting that the bike brakes in so much shorter distance than a car and wonder when this will happen to me. I try to keep checking the mirrors when slowing down.

Tweak, that really is scarey. Which wrist and what hand is your dominant hand? It might affect you for a long time. I hope you have a great lawyer.

Treky, be careful. Cars actually can stop quicker than bikes. Drivers are afraid of hitting bikes because they know they would get any injuries while they are protected in their cage.

I have to disagree. Stopping distance has to be shorter for a bike than a car.
