Call me crazy, but I just wanted to TELL everyone to be careful and WATCH OUT for uncaring cage drivers. I am on my way to the hospital just after they unload my BABY from the wrecker. :1: I refused to be taken by ambulance to the hospital until I was sure my bike did not get more damage from being towed. I was T Boned at 40 mph. I will fill you in when I get back from the hospital.

Having been there (although self inflicted) I can say thank goodness you are at least able to type. I'm trying to imagine how, however. The wrist will be the worst. I'm into 5 months and I still don't have full function. And My King's was worse.

But have fun putting together a new and better rod. Get well. All of us are thinking of you.

Frank - glad to see you are already thinking about upgrades. We are all curious as to accident details. Whatever happened, we might be able to learn avoidance techniques.....
Thats almost what happened to me yesterday, except it was broad daylight. In my case, the cager stopped completely across the road, blocking all possible exit routes. I was locked in the rear, and full tilt in front. Pretty scary. Stopped 2 ft from drivers window. Got my adrenaline up, for sure. We are apparently invisible. :whack: PS: loud pipes probably wouldn't have helped.
Only thing more dangerous than "lots of food, alcohol and driving" is a car full of kids, just leaving the "Toys-R-Us" store. Thats gotta completely frazzle anyone. Shopping is really dangerous for everyone.
Drove by the spot of my near miss on Saturday - saw a 15 foot skid mark. Be careful out there.
