Short life...

Purchased this sweet bike January '19 with 1 mile on odo. Rear ended by an inattentive driver at a stop light August '19. $14,270 damage plus $15,000 ER costs. Sad days. "Don't let the old man in!"

Major bummer. Glad you're still around to tell about it. That BDC needs to be held accountable for ignorance behind the wheel.

Glad it wasn't worse. Monster buys on motorcycles out of season. Keep your guard up, that old man is persistent.

We ARE our choices.

WOW. Glad it wasn't worse for you. Bikes can be replaced. Hope you won't give up on bikes because of some morons inattention. The other rider/riders come out ok?
