Well 109ers I damaged my silver baby today because some idiots clowning in a car pulled out in front of me in a neighborhood. Avoided the car but went to the ground. Got a sore left elbow and a bad attitude but other than that I am ok. Bike has broken left signal and left mirror but no major damage to the body. Guys please be careful out there....I was reminded today how little respect we get on the road. I hope my dealer has the replacement items so I don't have to ride damaged for to long. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

I am glad you are alright. That sucks about the bike. After you get over the initial anger you will realize that this may be a perfect opportunity to start modding the bike. Check the aftermarket to replace those broken parts. You may find something you like even better. Good luck.

I have signals and mirrors if you have any problems finding them at the dealer.

Well guys i too damaged my bike this weekend. Riding down the freeway in the wee hours of the AM there was a huge chuck hole that stretched the major part of the lane and no time to maneuver out of its path. The result was both front and rear wheels being bent. man was i pissed :verymad: Does anyone know of any aftermarket wheels that may be available yet :confused:

Sorry to hear about the bike, but glad you are ok! I've never laid my motorcycles down, but I did lay my moto scooter down a few years ago when I lived in Rome, Italy. Had a Yamaha Neos and had someone make a left turn (no signal) in front of me as I was passing and wham! I hit the side of their van and went down! Just a bruised elbow, scraped up scooter and bruised ego. Stupid Cagers! :verymad:

Now would be a great time to upgrade to Lamonster's 280 wheel and tire combo ;)

Good luck and ride safe..

Glad to hear you're okay. It sure does suck, though. I totaled my 03 Vulcan 1600 Dec 21st when a punk kid tried to cross the street in front of me in his 93 Chevy Caprice. T-boned him at 40MPH. I made it through with just bruises, but man was the front of my bike a mess. As with most things, however, there's a silver lining in the cloud. Totaling the V1600 just afforded me the opportunity to get the M109R earlier than I planned.

As they say, keep the rubber side down and the shinny side up!!!!!!

Mounting my Glock .40 sounds great! However, I'm sure if some idiot pulled out infront of me and kept going after I crashed, I'd probably hunt them down and kill them. So probably a bad idea, at least for me...

Is this something that you could take up with your local council I am assuming that a chuck hole is like a pothole over here in Aussieland I actually drove my car through a huge pothole damaged a wheel and broke a screen I approached the local council and they repaired the car at no cost to me .. It is worth a try I guess
