Fortunately for me the UPS driver was ticketed for an illegal turn and UPS compensated me for every expense related to the incident. I hope you are able to recover your losses too.
Unfortunately, nobody was close enough behind me to have seen the truck making the turn, and I didn't hit him ...

also lucky that no one was too close behind me, I would have been run over

and I'm not sure he even saw me go down, he didn't stop


this is what insurance is for

I came up a hill and there was a truck, a big rig, making a u-turn on the road in front of me. I didn't even immediately register what I was seeing, what I saw was the reflector tape along the trailer. I went grabbed all the brake I could, slowed enough and cleared the truck, but lost control of the bike, and went down in the right side traffic lane. Think it took a minute, but I got to my feet, was trying to figure out how I'd get the bike up, when I realized there was traffic coming. They weren't able to see the bike as they got to the top of the hill in much time to avoid the bike, most of them managed to miss it, but one car hit the bike. I know for sure the rear wheel is broken, don't really know how much other damage. The family picked me up, and I went on to attend the rally, didn't get there till Saturday morning, though.
I seem to be entirely unhurt, except for a few more that my usual aches and pains.

Cathy, there is an '09 BMW 800 with very low miles. I know somebody that can help you get a great deal on the bike. Plastics are not pretty but she is in great mechanical shape.

That sounds very scary Cathy, but glad to hear you are OK. A good example to always ride vigilant since you never know what people around you are going to do.
