You guys are right up my alley, ride, camp and good times. I live a bit east of the Bay Area but I will keep looking to hook up with you guys for a ride. Thanks to all for posting up your rides, I have ridden alot of those areas at one time in my life and nearly forgot about them, well not quite, but they do get my mind wandering. Hope to hook up with you guys for a ride soon. If you head out to the foothills let me know I do know some areas for good dual sporting. I am located in Oakdale and up for street or off road riding.
Bob

So I am thinking about leaving somewhere in San Jose getting coffee or something. Eating some place in Half Moon Bay, then head to Alice's for coffee or whatever. and then heading home to Fremont. Any takers??

Here's what it would look like...
When are you planning to do this?

a little shout out to bay area KTM friends - i need a set of ktm adventure wheels, preferably beat to shit, and cheap. as long as they can hold air to roll the bike onto a flatbed, they're good for me. anyone have any bent, cupped, taco'd rims i can buy off of them?


long story short, i was cut off by some asshole on 880S in oakland, ended up dropping the bike and sliding on my ass for a hundred feet or so. i'm fine, the bike is scratched up on one side... but the insurance company wants to salvage out the bike - and i don't want to let my woody's wheels go to the salvage yard, they'd never know what they had.


(click for more accident dmg)


or - if anyone wants a good condition project bike, but with a salvage title let me know now before i let the insurance company take it away. it's about $2500 in superficial parts away from being back in top shape.


i'm also newly in the market for a 990S, or 990R if anyone is selling!


PM me if you're interested in the bike or have an extra set of wheels.

It hurts just to look at that. What a waste of a great bike..

I wish I could help you out but all I got is a set of Woody's :)

If it's just $2500, why not fix it up and keep riding it? Looks like you have some nice bling and what not already.

i've been thinking about it, and i really don't want to deal with the salvage title... and not being able to have full coverage on it. my current insurance company, which i'm pretty happy with, has told me that they will flat out refuse to insure it all if it's a salvage title. i commute on it 1-2 days / week, and don't want to commute without full coverage, exactly for the reason that it got damaged this time.

if i was just riding it off-road, or could afford keeping it as a second bike, then i would... it's just not in the cards right now. to keep it, it would cost $3500 to buy it back from the insurance company, and another $2500 to fix it up... and then have to deal with re-registering it with the dmv then finding new insurance.

which is why i threw it out here... if someone else wants to deal with the hassle and repairing, and wants an awesome bike before it shows up on the auction block, then i'd happily transfer the bike to someone who is looking for just that. hypothetically someone could buy it from me and part it out and make some money off of the whole thing, i just don't have the time.



on the subject of the wheels - just looking for a back wheel now.

[edit] OH! and a stock seat. bruised & beaten is fine, it'll need to have a seat on it, and it'd be nice to either keep the renazco, or have it go to someone deserving.

Oh yeah. I would take all the bling that's still good off if you can. Like the TJD guard, slave cover and engine cover...

Take everything off
Speaking by experience they have no clue

You could even remove important oem parts and they wouldn't know

Glad you are OK. Looked at crash photos seems like your gear did a great job protecting you. If you don't mind asking which pants & jacket were you wearing?

yeah totally, the following is coming off, to be saved for my next bike:
- TJD exhaust guard (brand new!)
- rear brake toruatech guard
- hammerhead brake foot
- both CJD long footpeg extensions (even though one is damaged)
- new 2" longer brake lines & hydraulic clutch line
- renazco seat (if i can find someone willing to sell me their stocker)
- H&B Topcase & mounting bracket
- euro headlight (i still have the stock one, i can swap it out)
- woody's wheels (assuming i can find a rear to buy off of someone)
- BDCW bash plate (i'll replace with the stock one i have in a box)
- CJD sidestand relocation & sidestand cutoff switch

i can also take off the KTM orange engine case cover, but i've never done it before, i might need help... if someone wants it, speak up now... otherwise i'll leave it on.

the other big job that could be done, but i'm not sure if it's worth the time, is the bike has a RTT steering stabilizer, custom (crappy) anodizing... but it works, and is worth a bit of coin... but not to me. i already have a scotts & brp waiting to go on, and was planning on selling the RTT for cheap. if anyone wants it (or thinks it might be worthwhile to remove) let me know... i might need help.

it was a REV'IT Sand Jacket, and REV'IT Mistral pants, both of which are older models, and have been replaced in REV'IT's line. i still have everything, with all the upgraded CE armor, all the liners, whatnot. none of it is wearable, but the liners & armor could be re-used i suppose.
