A member here, KawiGrnNmyVeins, went down Sunday night around 9 p.m. He is doing fine and came out pretty lucky all things considered. Ribs got messed up and he is pretty sore but all in all doing well. Dog ran out in front of him leaving his girlfriends house. Bike is messed up a little but doesn't look too bad to me either. Have to wait and see what the insurance adjuster says.

Just thought I would let you guys know about it.

Man, that sucks to hear! Glad he is doing well...

Next time, hit the dog!! That way the bike has something soft to land on top of!

(Really - Im an animal lover...but I love my investment even more!)

He is doing well. Hurting pretty bad from the broken and cracked ribs. Spent his damn birthday like that too. Told him I would redo all his mods on his bike after he gets it back. Got to do something for his birthday too sometime.

*UPDATE*

He is home now and doing well. Could have been sooooo much worse! Don't know about the bike though...dealer quoted $3600 to repair it. That would be before mods. I told him if they total it he can buy it back and we will fix it up.

Good to hear about him being home already. Not too good about the bike though. If it does get totaled definitely buy it back and make it better. Just make sure to check for any damage to the frame.

Pretty certain the frame is fine. It took no direct hits but it landed on the gas tank so...gotta peel it off and have a look. Other than that the damage looked pretty light to me.
