    About three weeks ago I was involved in a hit-and-run. A jerk in a vet decided he was going to power slide around a blind corner I was the unlucky one on the other side of that corner! I ran into a rock wall to get away from him and he never even slowed down. I went over top the handlebars and windshield. Bruised my sternum broke some bones in my left hand and bruised my left knee pretty bad but I walked away unfortunately they totaled out my bike! I just left the shop tonight that had my bike took off the D&D pipes the Viking crossover mustang seat and Power commander five! I have everything in my garage and will be cleaning them up and taking pictures when I can stand to look at them again , And will post them on here in the for sale section this was a triumph rocket 2013 touring. I’m brokenhearted over this that bike was my pride and joy!

    Eff the bike as long as you are okay thats the important thing, you can always buy another bike especially just now as Rockets are going for next to nothing.

    Sorry to hear your bad times. The bike can be parted out or left in the corner for a pipe dream. Dust off your jacket, and start looking for a replacement..back in the wind brother

    Very sorry about the bike, but glad your alive to tell us about it. Heal fast. By the sound of the way the other guy was driving, Karma is bound to get him/her sooner than later!

    Sorry to hear about you and the bike. If you think about it you may want to get the side covers off (if you can). Those are like rocking horse poop and often needed by others.

    Yeah, don't sweat it, we've got plenty of R3Ts left in the world, Captains are not replaceable.

    Kinda like back in the war.

    Crash one plane and jump in another.

    Not something you want to make a habit.
