    Was goin down town too see my son at work , And apparently someone didnt like the bluelight special at wall mart i guess . As left light on a four lane street with a center turning lane , just as i cleared the traffic , here he comes , blows through stop sign across 5 not one but 5 lanes right in front of me , You guys know the rest . Hit front and rear brakes but too late skidded straight in . Woke up face down on the 100 degree pavement . No major injuries but am gonna be sore. Witness said that as i hit i went sideways off bike and rear of left hip hit the car as i spun over it . Just hope the disc replacement that finally got after fifteen years of suferin isnt ruined . Worst part for me , and wife says i am nuts , my beautiful 03 Road King w/ only about 5 k on it is in a unknown condition untill i can hobble down to see it , Policeman who is a M/C cop and rider figured gonna be at least ten grand . Its gonna be sent to our harley dealership for an aprasial , if neck not bent or twisted will hopefully make them fix it . Anyways Guys watch those afternoon shoppers lookin for the bluelight special , ya may end up seein lights and stars like i did .

    Thats (edit), hope you and the bike have a fast recovery.

    Please try to get them to check the frame very carefully.

    There is another thread with a newf who is having real trouble
    after an accident. Oh well, at least he wont have to deal with ICBC.

    Good luck with it.

    Please read this...

    I know how you feel: once you realize that you're gonna recovery from the crash, the first thought is for the bike!

    Unfortunately, despite the attention paid on the road, this kind of accidents are always possible!

    Recovery soon and get back riding immediately after: this is my wish! :)

    Good luck!

    Hopefully your aches and pains heal quickly. Glad to hear you rolled off the cage instead of slamming him broadside. Bike can be fixed. Take care and hopefully a quick recovery.

    Man! You can never let your guard down for even a moment.
    Glad to hear you are basicly OK, although I'm sure you will be hurting in places you didn't even know you had.
    Let us know how you make out with your bike.
