Nooo! You're lucky to be okay. But after all that work... Will insurance cover repairs? Or is it beyond repair?

Sorry to hear about that. Hope your bruises heal quick. Good luck with the insurance, and keep us informed as to how everything (including prosecution of the runner) goes.

Bad news for the bike but you appear to have been very lucky yourself. Sorry to hear of your "accident" especially after all the work and having her look so good hope it can be salvaged.

One of the reasons that I traded my Triumph chopper for a little RD250 was watching a car cross three lanes and a sidewalk to try and hit a motorcycle in North Charleston. You needed all the maneuverability you can get on those streets!
