Hit & Run

Well it happened....some dumb ass kids in a 4X4 truck hit my bike today at the cycle shop....and then hauled ass out of the parking lot before I could chase them down or get the tag #!. man oh man, shattered headlamp, trashed the chrome trim ring, destroyed my front fender, ruined the rt side leather saddle bag, scraped up my V&H exhaust.....bent brake lever, trashed mirror, scratched up forks...passing lamps, windshield and more....friggen pissed me off....then I had to drop $340.00 to have a new headlamp lens overnighted to me just so I can get to Sturgis!
I guess the good things were I wasn't on it and all the damage is cosmetic, and my insurance will cover it all....I had the dealer check the forks, wheel and front end just to be safe.....
Damn, Damn, Damn

Watching for a truck?

I bet you will be watching for that 4X4 truck for a while. Wonder if they were regulars at that cycle shop? Hit and run ranks right up there with DUI, almost. Glad you were not on it.

I would ask the cycle store if they bought anything. I would then be making frequent stops at that cycle store just to see if they come back for another part. I bet they are lucky you didnt catch them. Glad you are ok and were not on it. Enjoy your ride to Sturgis!

Just a bat that's being nice. Glad your ok, and like you said cosmetic and the down time while fixing. Riding it while it looks beat up. Wonder what he will look like with the easton in his head.

well....here it is.. $4600.00 in damages...my GEICO rep leads me to believe it may be considered totalled...! I may have to buy it back as salvage and spend some of the payoff on mods....according to the NADA and Kelly Blue Book looks like it is worth between $9500-$10200....can"t wait to see how I get screwed on this.....I sure hope they will just fix it!
