I was talking to my friend here in Texas today. This guy I know from when I was stationed here on Fort Bliss. He rides a GSXR, well, I should say rode a GSXR.
He told me he got into a really bad accident up in Albuquerque, NM. He told me he was doing about 75mph down one of the streets there and some old man decided he was going to dart across the street in his Lexus with his wife in the car too. They were both around like 60+ years old. My friend T-boned the car right in the passenger side front door, flew over the car and slid down the highway. He wasn't seriously injured though, got MAJOR road rash, but he was ok. They maxed out the 25K Medical on the insurance though.
So the insurance said it was like going to be around $15K to fix the car and the bike, well they didn't total it out so they paid him $2K for damages cause they said that is all that it was "appraised" at. He sold the bike to a salvage yard and vowed to never ride again.
