Well for all interested, I picked up a Roulette Green 2002 Triumph Speed Triple with 4200 miles from Hermy's that was on consignment. I picked the bike up on Wed 11/8/06 at around 6pm.
Unfortunately, I was unable to keep the bike a full week. I totaled the bike yesterday afternoon approximately 3:30pm. Details - the bike is/was certainly not a BMW with ABS and Hossack front suspension. I grabbed a "little" too much front brake while setting up for a corner. The front end tucked and the bike low sided. The bike and I both slid for approximately 200 feet crossing a lane of oncoming traffic (thankfully no cars at that moment). I came to a stop is a muddy field, with the bike ending up about another 30-40 feet from me and about 20 feet down into a ditch.
Fortunately a fellow Mac-Pac'r/Advrider was driving by about 10 minutes after the incident. Gary Christman from Kempton, PA has a Sanitation service right about a 1 mile from where I was. He was kind enough to take quite a few pics and helped me with some ice for my now swollen hand and wrist.
After few phone calls to my insurance company, Hermy's BMW/Triumph Kramer's towing service (at Hermy's recommendation) and finally my wife -who of course didn't answer the phone
A cherry picker tow truck showed up about 20 minutes later, they strapped the bike and picked it up from the ditch. They placed the bike into a front wheel chock and strapped the bars down, and delivered the bike to Hermy's for an assessment of damages. Hermy says the bike is totaled.
Gary kindly drove me to my house about 10 or so miles from his shop. I took a trip over to Hermy's to take care of the tow bill - $225 D*MN! Then I went to the Cedar Crest Emergency Center for a few x-rays. I have no broken bones or cuts. I have some bruising on my left palm and wrist as well as my right foot.
The Aerostich 1 pc suit definitely did its job well. The left & right elbow and left knee ballistic patches were worn almost all the way through. The rear reflective patch was all scuffed up with some areas worn through / melted. My helmet touched down on the back, then I tucked my chin to my chest to keep from bouncing my head on the ground. My boots and gloves got a little shredded. All in all - I'm very glad for a term I've read on here - ATGATT (all the gear all the time)
Here is a link to a zip file of the pics.
