Was finishing a group ride, taking it easy at the tail end and an older woman in a mid sized SUV cut across my lane and wiped me out... I was wearing my gear, so I'm alright, just a broken bone in my thumb and a banged up knee and ankle. Sucks because I was just getting into working on my bike and getting it fixed up the way I wanted it not this crap happens.
I'm hoping insurance takes care of it, but because I was on a sportbike, the officer initially tried to point the blame at myself being in the wrong lane. Skid marks of my bike show I was in the correct lane of the rotary and the woman plowed through my lane. So frustrating but glad I wasn't hurt worse than I was.
My poor bike is going to need some extra TLC.
People that have been in a crash or dealt with crashed bikes, what do I need to look for/inspect etc to see if it is fixable or non fixable. It was fairly slow speed but just need to be sure. My rear sets are messed up, mirrors, possible radiator/hose/coolant tank (or a combo of each), and fairings from what I can identify on my own need to be fixed.
I actually hopped on after the all was said and done and rode it home in 2nd gear about 3 miles away. These bikes are tanks, but just want to make sure my tank isn't toast. Any help would be greatly appreciated by myself and my injured bike.
