Mostly because they were unsure of my injuries and wanted to check me out further at the hospital. Turns out, I have three fairly minor scraps. One on the leg, a tiny one on my hip, and a tiny one on my elbow, along with a badly bruised right foot. I was out of the hospital in 2 hours, and I'm limping along fine. I have to say, THE RIGHT GEAR ROCKS!!! My gear took a beating. The armor on the spine, elbows, and shoulder, were beat up nicely. My boots were ripped, gloves the same. Helmet took it's share as well. Aside from the scraps and bruised foot, I think I came out of it pretty well.
While I havn't seen it yet, I don't think the 109 did though. The fire truck driver found and gave me my license plate back, along with the passenger foot peg, and the end cap to the left grip.
Insurance is covering it all, but knowing how hard it is to get parts, especially in Canada, I was told to expect about 4 weeks before I would see her again. I'm thinking 5 given the progress so far.
Can't wait to get it back, and get back on the road. Not much you can do when someone doesn't look, and leaves you no options. All I can say is ride well, wear the right gear, and ifÂ "!$&*$#"Â happnes, you will likely fair well.
Keep safe guys, see you on the road.
I added 13 pics on Frappr. I linked a few of the good ones.
You will notice the foot peg mount was driven so hard into the engine casing, it poked a hole in it, causing oil to leak out. That's going to cost a bit of coin. I circled it in red.
