Yeah I figured there was more damage than you thought when we talked a few weeks back! at 45mph No bike is coming out of it untotaled as far as the insurance is concerned.

glad to read things are looking up and the insurance company at least tried to lesson the hurt...knowing the bond we establish w/our rides modding and personalizing, has to be hard moving to another bike from the looks of what you did with your c50...beautiful bike and I do know how much it must have hurt to realize it won't be ridden again. Enjoy your search for your next ride and kudos to the missus...hope the healing is coming along well..take care.

Whats the big hurry...slow down and enjoy the ride!

Viper - What's the "deal of the century"?

My 1500 has an electrical problem that is proving to be a MOTHER to track down. Been working on it myself, with the help of some Vulcan forums people and with a local mechanic. Actually the latter is doing the vast majority of it. Great guy!

I may be taking a loss on it to sell it to someone who has the know how to find & fix it.
