You can see the left saddle bag isn't lined up and had trouble getting right bag open. Here is pic before and after plus there was at least an inch between the hitch and tire, not anymore so something gave. I looked at the crash bars where hitch mounted and it didn't look like it moved but something gave. I agree, if I had not put rack back on yesterday before going the car would definitely have crushed saddle bags and much more

Well I did just call Law Tigers and the attorney is supposed to call me right back, they said not to talk to the other guys insurance to let them deal with that. They don't charge for dealing with property damage as motorcycles are their specialty. They said they will get me back on my bike or a replacement as quickly as possible as long as I feel I am up to riding, don't know anything more until they call back so no clue what it will cost at all or anything beyond that. May need to make wife go to hospital in morning if she doesn't start feeling better, she was fine last night she said but now she aches everywhere, said at bedtime neck hurting to lay down and took a pain pill before she could sleep

Interesting....


I was not aware of Law Tigers back in 2008, not sure if they could have done me a better job than my lawyer or not. he was a specialist in working with the Trucking Industry.

I talked to them a few minutes ago, anything they get me for the bike doesn't cost me anything. The only way they get paid is when they get paid is if they get me something like pain and suffering, they get 30% which is high to me but as far as bike they get none of the proceeds from property damage

After reading and seeing the pics in post #21, that rack saved your bike from even more damage. JMHO

Ron called me earlier today, and we talked about that rack, and how it was made of laser cut materials, all welded up by the Factory's top welder/designer.


that break in the rear most frame member?

that is a tear in the angle iron, there was no seam there to rip apart.


to me, that rack and a solid trailer hitch mounting saved the bike a lot of damage.

that was not quite angel iron, it was .06 " material, angle iron would be much heavier but it was made to be strong, the way its fixed it was really stiff with no flex, at least it was. Without the rack they would have been hitting the saddlebags and bike would definitely totaled, as it was it still a bit of damage just not near as much visible I think. I just put the rack back on to go pick things up I wanted for the Il M&G, which I obviously didn't get to go to

Not going to a M&G?? Now that there is pain and suffering if I ever saw pain and suffering. Sorry Mystic, just couldn't let that one pass. I see many positive and negative solutions/statements here. It's kind of like a candy counter, pick and chose what you like and leave the rest at the counter. Good luck with health issues, that might arise from this, and getting your bike back on the road. Keep us informed.

Ron called me about Dark Thirty,
his wife admitted she needed to see the ER folks.


turns out she experienced a good bit of whiplash...


so, the lawyer can have some more ammo to work with.
