Angry Jousted with a F-350 today

And lost. On my way home from work today a guy in a F-350 ford pulled out in front of me had and I had to lay the Vulcan down. Somehow I missed the truck but the bike didn't fair so good. When I went down the bike hooked something and threw me past/over the truck(can't really remember exactly) anyway bike is probably totalled but only had a few scratches on my helmet and HJC padded leather jacket.I ended up with a very small chip in a tooth a sprained right knee and ankle, will be going to see the bike tomorrow to access the damage and at that point it will probably sink in .

It's getting to be that time of year.. a little cooler and for some reason people simply do not think about someone riding a motorcycle in cooler weather.
Everyone be careful out there cause no one is watching for you!

Congrats on being geared up too. Much easier to replace a jacket then a few layers of skin, plus it's a pain pulling out all those little bits of gravel and asphalt.

I do have some parts in the VN750 parts department so once you find out if the bike is salvageable let me know and I'll see what I might have available.

Sorry to hear, but glad you're okay.

The time change doesn't help either, seems like all the drivers got crazier since Monday?

Did the driver of the truck stop? What did the accident report say? Was anyone at fault?

The driver of the truck was cited for running a stop sign. He was in a company truck and the cop said he was insured so tomorrow the $$$ battle will begin if I can move around as the Doc said even though I was fine tonight would more than likely be sore as hell by the weekend.

Glad to hear that you're mostly ok...that not remembering exactly what happened - did anyone check you for a concussion?

I thought Drive Like a Moron Month ended on Tuesday at midnight, but apparently Someone decided to extend the offer into November. Folks are definitely not paying attention out there; and those who are, seem to be in more of a hurry than usual.

Everyone, be safe. Woody, keep us posted on what's up with you and with your wheels.

Sorry to hear about that, the company should pay for everything. If not get a good lawyer and make them. If you need help on the bike just ask and I will help with what I can.
