Death of a soldier

Finally happened, that day we all dread where some ******* don't look where he's going and turns left right in front of you..... The battle ship might be toast. I'm not bad, banged up and ynkex every muscle in my back but not hurt. (Caution coarse launge) DONT EVER PUT YOUR STUIP ASS ON A BIKE WITHOUT A HELMET!!!! Savedmy life today. I hope I can resurrect him or itll be in the parts section of this site. Now the $1000 that I wanted for EVERYTHING is unreasonable....lol....wish me luck

Thank God you are OK.

That seems to be the most common accident scenario.

Sooo . . . glad you're able to post about it !!!

God Speed to your recovery !!!

Like Garret, I have parts collecting dust here when you're ready.

Were you wearing a full face helmet ?

You're telling us about it. You can still walk. It's all good. The bike, you can fix or replace.

I crash tested a helmet a couple years ago, myself. I still suffered concussion. I wouldn't be interested in trying it sans helmet.

Thanks for all the good wishes guys. You are all right, the battleship can be replaced. Going to have to be. The motor got split and the frame is broke. Just hauled it off....part that hurt the most is how much time+love I had in it. It was never "pretty" but it kicked ass down the road really well, never broke down. I'm soar but I'll get better. Thanks again guys, if anyone wants what I've got for parts left over let me know. Got a good parts pile including a low milage motor. If your near Billings MT list me know. If someone wanted to take it all I'd let everything go for $100.
