Hey man, I have a quick question if you don't mind helping me out. I'm a dental student in Charleston SC and ride on the weekends, or when ever school and my wife and kids allow time. I read your post about the bike accident you had last year. I'm curious to know how that worked out? I had a similar accident this passed weekend and my bike was totalled. The guy rear-ended me as I was turning. Avalanche at 55 vs me at 10mph... I'm worried bc even though his insurance company said they will cover my medical bills and the bike but my bike isn't worth much. If they give me the actual value of my bike which is probably only $1,000 for my 1985 Honda XL600R, I won't be able to afford to replace it. Did you have to go after the truck driver's insurance company or the driver for restitution? Did you get a new bike or the cash equivallent of the damaged bike?
