Wow, those injuries are gonna take some time to get over, glad your daughter wasn't hurt too bad. I have had an unusual amount of people pulling out in front of me lately, it's like no one is paying attention at all. Hope you guys heal up soon and good luck on the bike repairs.

Thanks for the support guys.  Been home now for about a week and and a half.   Finally got to see my bike yesterday. Insurance has totaled it. Broke my heart to see it in the condition it's in now.  Oh well.  I'm on the prowl now for another Concours once everything is settled.

Glad you are on the mends.  Whenever I read "left hand turn" stories it makes me trust left hand turners even less.  Even going home yesterday I had to stop myself from target fixating on one waiting to cut across the lane.

Kind of late to comment here but last riding season here four motorcyclists were killed when vehicles turned left in front of them....cage drivers all female. Not sure that means anything but a buddy of mine swears the opposite sex cannot see bikes. Glad you were not hurt worse and that your daughter is OK.

Thanks for your support.  Driver of the truck was male and the drive of the car was female.  Both said they didn't see me.  Oh well.....  Insurance wants to give me 3000 for my bike minus 500 for towing and storage.  I'm arguing I shouldn't have to pay for storage and towing as the accident was not my fault.  We'll see what happens.   Feels weird not having my bike for Bike Week.

Don't hesitate, call a lawyer. When insurance starts trying to play games like that it is time to even the odds.
