yes to insurance, the adjuster will be looking at the bike on MondaySteve_Carlton said:Wow, sorry to hear that, Mark!
Glad to hear you weren't hurt worse; nice to hear about all the helpful people. Your attitude sounds really great! The important thing is no permanent damage to you, and the bike has insurance... right?
I agree, even though I've been riding for years, as soon as I'm mobile again, I'm going to take one of those courses. I want to find out what other stupid things I like to do, the easy way this time.Old-Codger said:...May be time when you are up and mobile again to seek some further training. Im not sure what is available your side of the pond...
Your mom would have been proud, though. As for the snide comments from your siblings, you can always use the "Smothers Brothers" comment of "Mom always like me best...deal".This morning a young nurse came into my room and asked me if I could get out of bed on my own and I said yes, then she said she'd leave some washclothes and towels in the bathroom for me and I realized I had just blew my chance for a sponge bath, Doh!!!! :banghead
I agree. If I had waited for the light to change I'm sure I would've pulled out calmy and under control.andetorp said:IMHO I would say that if you cannot be certain you are not interfering with any crossing traffic, you should stop and not do a right-on-red! The few seconds wait until green would have saved you the urge to gun still in the curve and thus not loosing traction.
My RS is at BMW of Milwaukee. I just got off the phone with them. They've sent their estimate and photos to my insurance company and are waiting for the check.B_Haugen said:Mark, I had a tip over (side stand) gave way, which cost my insurance close to 3 grand. If there's no real mechanical problem you can order the new panels and install yourself. When mine tipped over it hit the edge of the valve cover and caused a leak, so I had to replace the cover, also the shift lever busted off. My helmet was on the bike when it tipped so it was covered too! I have GMAC Rider Insurance, they were very prompt and no hassel. Hope you have your bike and body repaired soon!!
