In response to getting the ultra wrap-around lights, I actually already had the smoked LED wrap-around lights and loved the look so I'll replace them with the same.
My ribs are feeling much better. Almost no pain at all. My knee is still bothering me but very little. My concern there is surgery that I had on it a few years ago from a motorcycle accident at work. I think it's okay so I'll give it a little time. I did put it on the record with progressive that I had some knee pain incase I need to get it checked out later in the week. I really think it's okay and just needs a few days to recover.
I had 3 people tell me yesterday that I should buy a lottery ticket. 3 is my 'lucky' number. When I bought the ticket last night the power ball number on the ez pick ticket was 3. Let's hope my bike will turn into a CVO :-)
I'm really picky about my vehicles. Usually if I get so much as a couple of grand in damage i'm at the dealership trading it once it's repaired. Like many have said, including myself, I'm fortunate to be able to talk about this. I've replayed it a million times. I'm surprisingly not concerned about the bike damage. I also wonder if the fairing being fixed, and taking the initial impact, played into the fact that I was able to keep it under control because of not causing a 'snapping' motion upon impact. It seems logical to me that if I was riding my old batwing that the impact would have been more likely to pull the steering to the left and take the bike down. As others have said, maybe somebody else took the bars for a minute and I was just along for the ride!!!
I love the color of the bike as it is, however if I end up with a complete paint job I will probably switch to the blue pearl. Progressive has always been great with me in the past but I've never had an 'at fault' accident, always the other driver. They certainly have been quick to contact me and have been very polite and professional. The rep did tell me this still is not considered an 'at fault' accident which is a good thing. I just wish one of the many witnesses had stopped to see if I was okay and could have given a statement to them. Nobody stopped which disgusts me. My deductible is $500. The fortunate thing is I carry a whopping $7,000 in accessory coverage. The reason for that is with my bike being a custom, the trunk and it's extras alone were $3,500 or so to have installed when I purchased. If I didn't have that coverage I would have likely been out of luck on getting that replaced. Looks like it paid to have that coverage.
I'll keep everybody posted on the insurance settlement outcome. Thanks for all the responses.
