was just in a very bad accident with my KLR yesterday. Idoit turned in front of me, I hit him doing 45mph upon impact, I was thrown completely over the top of the van he was driving... No internal injuries but have broken nose, cheek bone and possible broken knee and foot. Also have stiches in my chin and throat and two broken front teeth. Not sure about the bike, have not seen it yet, just heard stories that it is in two pieces and a total loss. Still planning to go see what it looks like if it is not a "total" total loss I will keep as salvage and sell off parts. Do plan to ride again just not sure if it will be a KLR.
Glad you survived to ride another day, Dooley. Prayers for a quick healing your way.
I had a bad one back on '07 (totaled my beloved Nomad) and couldn't wait to get back on a bike (even though it took about 7 months before I could physically ride again). I had to listen to 7 months worth of people calling me an idiot and various other names for wanting to get back on a bike. I laughed at them, especially the smokers.
I'm saying that just to say keep your chin up and press on brother.
