Zero Speed Ground Collision
How's this for frikkin stupid?
I get off my oh-so-shiny, all black, aren't-I-just-the-shit K1200RS after another pseudo-fast ride.
Park it on the sidestand in my driveway.
Walk to the gate to go open the garage.
Watch it tip oh so slowly and then go CRASHing to the ground.
Pick it up... broken mirror, clutch lever, and shift lever. Bashed fairing side panel, upper, and instrument surround. Bashed peg mounting points, bashed muffler.
The bill? Allstate's saying "call it $2500". Funny part was on the phone with HeatherTheClaimRep... "How fast were you going?"
"I wasn't. I was parked."
"Umm so were you hurt?"
"No. I wasn't on it."
"Huh? You mean you weren't in the vehicle?"
"No, I had parked it and walked away."
"So it like uh crashed without you in it?"
"Something like that."
long pause... I have to talk to my supervisor.
long pause ends... "OK, even though it wasn't moving? It was a collision with the ground."
"A collision with the ground..."
"Yes. But it doesn't count."
"OK. You're still paying for it."
