Recently ordered a new Ural CT, hoping to have it by mid September. It will replace a 2008 Tourist wich was totaled when I was hit from behind by a 4WD truck, I was stopped at a red light in the city! Watch those mirrors y'all!

 

Thank God there were no Grandkids or dogs with me that day!

Thanks Ratso, but yeah, it messed me up, no more solo rigs in my future. I sold my 2015 Triumph America, those days are over! I think the CT will be the ticket for me now.

 

Grateful to still be riding! And yes, fall riding is great!

 

Thanks for the shout!

 

Best,

Junkie:

Bummer about getting smashed. I know how that feels, and hope you are recovering OK.

And get a GOOD settlement.

 

Wife and I are waiting to receive a settlement offer from an insurance company after having our 1-year old Subaru Outback totaled around us.

I clearly saved our lives, with just a cracked sternum for me and mental trauma for us both.

Got sandwiched among 3 trucks inside a tunnel. They all got serious citations, and the new RAM 350 that hit us got towed away. "I didn't see any brake lights..."

Yea. You have to drive with your eyes open and looking ahead.

We got injuries, a new car, and whatever else comes.

 

So your recovery is in my thoughts.

Hooray for three wheels!

Keep riding.

Thanks Russ, but they barely covered my medical expenses. Long story.

 

The lesson that I learned was thus, always leave yourself an exit in any traffic situation, and watch those mirrors. I did neither that day and paid dearly.

 

Oh, and I almost forgot, my lawyer was a nimrod!

 

Thanks for the shout!
