Saw the pics. Nothing a little rubbing compound can't take care of. :wtf
But really...
Wow! You're one lucky man. You might want to go play the lottery before that wears off.

Would like to stress the GT stayed upright - the balance was impeccable so a saving grace.
Hated losing the headlights. Almost . But even with a racing throttle (e.g., something was stuck causing the throttle to keep the RPMs at about 6000 RPMs) could still control the GT with clutching and braking although it took me a 1/4 - 1/2 mile to get the bike to the emergency lane.

So, the question now is what type of lights to add.

Having used stock lighting.

Thanks all for the various comments. A great learning experince.

BTW - the only person evacuated by ambualance was an occupant in one of the two pick-ups.

Man, that is messed up! I am so glad to hear you weren't seriously injured (or worse).

Steel, Aluminum, and Plastic can be replaced.

Thank YOU for sharing this with all of us. It will make all of us a little bit more aware and a little more careful out there.

I know I'll be more focused on expecting the unexpected. Glad you shared this and glad you're a-okay. You're obviously a peach of a guy and I'm glad you're still with us.

Again thanks Steve. All the best. She'll be right as rain in no time. BTW, awesome color!!

Thieves. Maybe your insurance will cover the tow since it was the result if a collision and you had no choice as to provider?

Also, hard to believe that a truck could lose its camper shell and the driver be completely unaware. My guess is that by the time he turned around the damage was done and other drivers had already collided with it... so he just high-tailed it out of there. Between him and the towing company the world is full of wonderful people, huh?

Very glad that you weren't hurt!
