Why not call MCC direct and see who they use?

Also, many insurance companies offer Roadside, perfect opportunity to use it. I know I pay $10/year through Progressive for the bike.

He was taken by ambulance so I am not sure where the bike is.
Still on hold trying to find out.

Broken Wrist,
Fractured Ribs
Knee is to swollen to tell, but no broken bones they can see.
Bike had key in Ignition, he forgot to take it out of the ignition as he flew off.
So it may be gone, He is trying to locate it now.
Thanks to all for trying to help out!

I work about 4 blocks away from where this happened, but there wouldn't have been anything I could do to help. With all the emergency vehicles on the scene, it would have made sense for the police to call in a flat-bed to tow it and clear the scene. I'd start by calling the police to see if that's what happened.

Update

So the bike was stolen, the police have no idea what happened to it.
He called all the tow lots and they do not have it.
I will find out about plate and let you know.
Keep your eyes open for a 2010 KTM RC8.
He is mending while living the dream on NORCO.
Thanks again for the help.

My guess is an inside job at one of the tow lots. Almost positive the police would have called in a truck to clear the scene, especially if he was driven away in an ambulance.

My guess is someone at the tow lot decided they'd pick it up before any one else came by.

If it was insured, perhaps he'll be better off in the end with a check to replace that bike, rather than repairing damage from the off.

It sucks to have anything stolen, but if he's healthy and winds up with new wheels, all things considered, it could have been worse.
