Maybe. I have the full range of motion back, but it still hurts when I try to grip things. I can't pick up a glass of water or turn a door knob. I went for a ride on the Spyder today using a Crampbuster and had no issues, so maybe that's an option.

Wow. That is a pretty healthy chunk of change for what seems like mostly cosmetic damage. I'm guessing you did not notice any difference in handling?

Will insurance cover 100%?

You do realize there were a large number of "gripping things" as well as GI Joe kung fu grip type jokes running through my head?

My place. 10am. Be there or be square...

The leatt and velocity gear I have are pretty cool.

That's awesome. I'm thinking of taking my CRF to Monogahela/Seneca Rocks Area this summer. Did the Dragon last summer and in 2008. First time I went was '95, it's gotten to be a lot more popular area since then.

Is it really cooler? Also how about elbows & knees? I have a pretty high deductible on my health insurance, so I'm not against spending a little less to prevent the e-room trip.

Not really. I mean, the bars were bent and the forks made odd noises upon compression but it handled as normal.

Insurance should cover it minus my deductible.

It's night and day difference in cooling. The roost protector sits up off your skin for the most part instead of having all that padding right up next to you making you hot.

I also have knee and elbow pads but don't really like what I have. I'm still searching for the right protection for them.

I have several difference overpants with and without padding too but will be going with no padding in the pants when it gets really hot.

I love Seneca Rocks. My wife and I summitted it twice. Once with an instructor from the Seneca Rocks Climbing School and once by ourselves.

Fix it yourself + you might as well do some cool aftermarket stuff, it will be cheaper than OE. Might take a little more time than the drop-it-off-at-a-dealer-and-get-it-back-fixed method, but at this time of year you are not going to get a quick turnaround anyhow.

Pocket the leftover $, put it in the next bike cookie jar or farkle the shit out of it.

I assume the cost is so high because Super Tenere forks are filled with unicorn tear fork oil?
