Having said that, it is very hard to see into the past or future from my chair here at the moment
You nailed it, it is pretty hard to see anything from your chair...anyways...
The bike didn't hit anything because during is tumble it went off the side of the road stopping in the shoulder lane. No matter what you say had I not laid it down I would have hit the pop-a-lock guy, that was a given.
Vito, I was on the left side of the lane. The road I'm on is notorious for its distracted, low caring, college student, and over-all bad drivers. Highway 50 and Sand Lake Road Feature On Central Florida's Most Dangerous Roads List
The SUV was in the lane with other traffic waiting for the light, it just got impatient and pulled out in traffic. There was plenty of traffic between me and the cars in front of me. The right lane becomes backed up due to the toll road on-ramp. Had I been distracted, I would have been side-swiped
The point of this post wasn't to see who would do what. But hey, if everyone wants to weigh in and have a pissing contest of what they would do and why they are right, so be it. Hijack away....
Instead, I was more concern with the damage to the head. I'm guessing that you can just add a chunk of metal to the head without it looking like sh!t and if you could weld a piece in and doing everything to make it look pretty and all, its going to cost a good chunk of $. Then again buying a new motor is going to be pretty pricey. Add in all the other repairs that need to be done and its getting close if not past the value of the bike.
What do you think?
