Glad you're all OK.

You should sell that truck. It's bad luck The lady that hit you should cover any rental car you need--esp since you need your truck for work

Glad your bike was undamaged. You say you cant ride anymore overnighters because your truck is damaged? That bike with full fairing and racks looks more streetbike than dirtbike. Leave the kitchen sink at home and go!

No. Where we are thinking of going (and taking), driving is the better option.

Yeah Paul. You never go anywhere without a truck, full support group, and all the luxuries of home.

Wow - Dang!

Your truck has been through the grinder this year. I am starting to think the angry spirits have your VIN number memorized.

At least she didn't hit the RIGHT side of the bed. Then you'd have a bent up truck and a messed up 990. Glad you are OK - let's talk soon.

Whew, the bike's safe (screw the truck, the bike's what matters!) Glad you're both ok, too.
