Yeah that sounds a little shady, if the wreck didn't happen you wouldn't need a new tire anyway. Lawyer up and go for depreciated value too! Haha, can you even do that with a motorcycle?

I have many leather-bound books and my home smells of rich mahogany

A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week

Ok now the story.
I took my bike a week ago to have it serviced for the summer. I live in a small town and the nearest reputible mc shop is 50 miles away. I get an early start and take off at about 0800. I roll into town and am crusing down a main thourughfair by a car lot. Lady in a POS 78 Trans AM rolls out of the car lot into the street without stopping right into my path. Im about 40 feet away when I see this. I try to brake and avoid to begin with but I brake to hard and my rear wheel starts to slide from under me. I let off, and in the split second I decide that its too late to avoid and figured I was going slow enough (35) that I might be able to stop in time if I lock'em up and I PROBABLY wont die. If I do wreck. it will be less damage than laying it down. So I lock'em up and slide right into her front fender. After the colision, I am still in my seat..my jeans (suprisingly) dont have a brown streak in them and all in all im ok...my bike is a different story. Once I realize im fine...now im pissed. I climb off my bike, rip my sunglasses off my face. "GOD **** IT!!!!" Sun glasses go flying off some where between the car lot and the street.
At this point I realize that everyone is staring at me. Including the lady I just ran into. She has a look in her eyes that looked like she was preparing to beg for her life to a knife wielding madman!. I composed myself and told her I was fine and to call the cops. At this point, this 42 year old (probably high on queludes) ***** procedes to fret about her piece of **** car and how she has had it since she was 16. after 5 minutes of this I finally get my own phone out and call the cops myself...During the accident investagation...turns out this hoe is the daughter of the car dealer! (guess I should have acted a little more hurt!) All in all not too bad. front fender, wheel, rim, spokes, forks, and fork covers. All told about $2600 damage, a fat lip from smashing my face on the windshield, a bruise on my thigh and some sore muscles...could have been a whole lot worse....So...Rachael Spady of North Platte Nebraska....this story is for you.....you *****!!!


The important thing is you walked away to ride another day

I'm not a biker, I'm a trucker that rides a bike.

Insurance will only cover 50% of the tire? Perhaps you could ask them to recommend a shop that sells half-tires. Insurance is a scam.

Haaaahaaha.....that's good s**t!! Go after them for "mental anguish" as well in your efforts to locate a tire that is only 50%!!!

The absolute important thing though is that you are truly OK!! I know they say that "it's not if you will have an accident, but rather when." And with that said, I do not look forward to any contact with anything on my bike other than the two tires on the road.
