Sorry to hear, glad you are still here. Heal up, took a while for me to feel comfortable on the bike again after my last incident, but I just couldnt stay away.

Some good news - my doctor's office was able to get me my MRI and I had it done Monday morning. Amazing. I got the report but haven't talked to my doctor about it yet. It looks mostly Greek, but I did see that there is "focal full-thickness tearing of the medial retinaculum from the patellar insertion." Google says that will heal on its own, though I may be at greater risk for a knee dislocation. No idea how long the recovery is.

Full thickness graft is scheduled for Thursday morning. Looking forward to getting on the "final" road to recovery, though I have a feeling it will feel like I've hit a soft reset button for a while.

Oh, they totaled my bike. Going to fight with them over the value. I had a $500 deductible, and these are the amounts:

Keep the bike, title becomes salvage: $2,065.50
Insurance takes bike: $3,185.50

Accounting for the deductible, they've pegged the bike's replacement value at $3685. No way could I buy a 2010 Bonneville for that kind of money. Not sure if I want to keep it to resell. I'd like to think it would be a fun project, but I already have too many bikes, and the resale value would take a hit due to the title being salvaged. It fires up like a champ and still sounds nice, so there's that.

Damn that's a garbage evaluation.

It's a toss up really. Not sure how much of a return you'd get by fixing and selling it with a salvage title. Yet, it certainly is worth fighting with the insurance company about.

They already rejected my rejection and would not increase it. Time to start looking for another company.
