Pissed My wife ran over my 950

Title says it all. Bike was parked in front of my house, wife pulled up and thinks she puts her car in park. She turns around to talk to my daughter. As the car hit my beloved 950 she panics and hits the gas. Drags the bike till she slams it into a curb and drives onto it. Needless to say I don't think I'll be riding it to Baja in a week and a half.

You got it. Trip planned bike was all prepped and full of new parts like the $400 FLEXXBars that are now headed to a recycle yard. Wish that was the worst. Subframe for sure is toast. I hope she didn't bend the frame. I'm afraid that would be a death sentence.

No pics yet. I picked up my wounded bird, propped her up on the bent center stand and walked away. I went inside packed a bowl and poured myself a large glass of Makers Mark.

We all feel your pain. . . But really a pic of the wife sitting on it would be nice .
I hope she didnt follow it up with "honey its only a motorcycle, no one got hurt" . Like everything the pain eventually goes away, just goes away a lot faster if KTM truck shows up with a new one for you.

Ouch... Insurance? Get another bike and do the trip although that's short notice to get one sorted.
