On the afternoon of April 17th, I went for a half hour ride and didn't get home until 10 days later.
An oncoming car decided to make a left turn with me in the way and the picture shows the results of that.
I was out immediately but I think I landed on the hood and bounced to the road. I was wearing all my gear. Helmet, boots, gloves, armored denim jacket and pants, so all I got was two broken wrists and a broken foot. No other scrapes or cuts. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be here now if I wasn't wearing my gear.
Progressive totaled the bike and I can't say enough good about this company.
They gave me a check for the retail value of the 2011 Vegas, 8 Ball, stock bike.
They gave me a check for the retail value of all the things I added aftermarket (like exhaust, backrest, etc.) plus the 6% PA sales tax.
And they gave me a check for replacement value of all my destroyed riding gear; i.e., armored jacket, my new HJC helmet, boots, etc. and the sales tax.
I'm hoping that in eight weeks I'll be healed and riding my Cross Country.
