I hit "like" but I don't like what happened. Seems that you are OK? The insurance companies value old bikes really low so point out any and all add ons you have done to the bike.

So glad you were able to walk away from that, but guessing you'll be feeling a lot of sore muscles and bruising in the coming week or two. The bike can always be repaired or replaced at your discretion. Looks like it was very nice prior to the collision, so will keep my fingers crossed the bike will be replaced/repaired to your liking. Again - Very glad you're OK! Kevin

Did those forks break off in the crash or was it finished off when they dragged it up onto the tow truck ?:confused:

I'm glad you're ok. The good thing about those forks crumpling is it took a lot of the impact off of you.

Yup,after 17 years riding incident free,had a girl do illegal u-turn in my path and WHAM!! Crumpled front forks,maybe tore radiator (saw coolant)...I ended up "flying" over the roof of the Lexus 4 door. Could get good used forks/radiator?? Today a week later,Shadow started great/ran!!

Golly! It’s good you’re ok. I hope to have 17 years of no incidents. That should wrap up my riding career!

Glad you came out well.

Wish we had something other than 'like'. It really is the WRONG thing to have for posts like these!
