Had my bike wrecked

A nice Indian Gentleman decided to do a U turn on me after he left the mosque.
His friend pulled out in the first car and got into the right lane on the dual carriageway and did a U turn, I was following the second car, expecting him to do the same I hung back, but he stayed in the left lane doing 25mph, So I sped up to overtake and almost as I was along side him......U turn!
I went over the top of the car and looking at my helmet I landed on my head, so I have a very sore neck and wrists, my man bits are also very swollen and have now gone completely black.I hope they dont drop off
Had a call today the 3rd party has admitted his fault, phew.
claiming personal injury and bike gear, should also get a loan bike...hhhmmm wonder what it will be...MT10, 1290 Duke ?? bet its a Versys 1000

Thanks.Its being collected by the insurance company Thursday and they will drop off a loan bike.
Just spoke to the garage where it is stored, the forks go up and down ok, so they dont think they are bent, there is however a scuff on the bottom of the fork and they say this may be enough to write it off, also the front axle bobbin is missing, so it did its job, lol
I just need to pop down tomorow, and remove the givi rack and R&G case protectors if they are un scratched.

Jeez!
Lucky you got away as likely as you did. That bike looks a wreck! Glad to hear they've admitted liability and they've actually got some insurance.
Hope you mend well and nothing drops off ;-)

Already thinking another GSXS but naked or B-King or K1300R. Thinking not new but second hand around £7K or less

Aren't you glad you had your helmet on? Glad you're safe!

That bike is a mess, totaled for sure, I would think.

Glad your ok, bet you want the pain to go but the swelling to remain ;-)

Certain people are like slinky's, no apparent use but always bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs
