I'm so sorry to hear this, but I'm glad you're okay. Shaken but not stirred, as they say.

I'm sorry to hear of your misfortune. I am glad you are up and mobile though. This could have been much worse. Make sure you give yourself enough time to heal up before you get back out there again.

You are right, you can do everything just like you should and still get hosed. That's just life. I hope you feel better soon.

The best laid plans ......... what can you do? Sorry to hear you took such a hit. Best wishes for a no pain recovery, and that the bike ends up good as new after repairs. Do have it carefully checked ..... you don't want frame damage.

I got rear-ended in 2006 on my Kaw W650, but the circumstances were different. I was stopped at a red light, the pick up behind me was also stopped. I was about to make a 'right on red,' but noticed a fast moving car approaching from my left, so I had to stop. Pickup driver was concentrating on traffic from left, but didn't notice I'd stopped. Bam! But it was low speed, and I stayed on the bike and fortunately, didn't get pushed into oncoming traffic.

Bike stayed up and I stayed on the bike. Damage was minimal, requiring replacement of rear fender, license plate holder and turn signals ..... think that was it.

Driver was insured, but we handled this 'off insurance' ...... he was a good dude, and followed thru as he said he would.

Sorry to hear about your accident , wish you a speedy recovery and no lasting health issues.
Two years ago I bought a Helite air vest and use it on every ride.
I bought the Turtle back high viz one , not cheap but check the videos on line explaining how they work.

That’s awful bro. This woman was stopped behind you at a light and accelerated into you or did she fail to stop and ran into you? Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Get well soon DaSwami!

When you feel better you might want to talk to the shop about your concerns. My dealer had a CB1100 in for an incident. Like yours the bike was taken in on a flatbed. They said a lot of times they never even meet the owner and find out what happened until he/she picks up the bike.

You would be able to give them details to help in their examination. Good luck!

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

Wow. Hope you fully recover quickly.
As much as I enjoy mine, a bike is truly an inanimate object. Lawyer probably good route simply for the experienced advice.
Take your time, heal completely, and ride in the spring.
Best wishes.
