As most of you know I crashed 10 days ago in WI. There results - totaled bike and fractured elbow
Now to the good part:
Thanks to State Farm full coverage, good friends and good luck, I am back in the business:
1 year ago: 2005 Triumph Sprint ST with 2500 miles on the clock:
10 days ago: 2005 Triumph Sprint ST with 10000 miles on the clock and some signs of wear and tear:
Today: 2006 Triumph Sprint ST ABS with 5600 miles on the clock, hard bags and not a scratch and some money left to replace the lost gear (shoei helmet on order!):
My biggest luck was in having such a good friend as Spas, he helped me to get the old bike to the shop, found my new bike on craigslist and drove there to look at the bike and load it on the trailer, if it was not for him, I would be sitting in the empty garage nursing my busted arm right now!
State Farm FTW!!!! Spas's wife, Kate, is my agent, thanks to her everything was smooth as a butter, I had the settlement and the check ready for local pick up exactly 1 week after the crash, no issues whatsoever, everything was dealt with in fast and fair manner.
I am happy as a pig in the mudd and after kids are asleep, I am going to sit in the garage, finish a bottle of wine and talk to my new bike!
