    On the street or track?

      Crap. Someone was watching over you on that one. Don't have an opinion on the replacement. Are you buying the bike back or did it not have insurance?

        Sorry about your accident, I assume it was on the street since you mention jacket and helmet. Hope you recover quickly. By The Way, from the pictures I can tell it will buff right out

        Sooooooooooooo.... how about the clipons, are they salvageable? I could take them off your hands if you want.

        Regardless, best wishes.

          Yeah, inquiring vultures want to know. What happened to the wreck. Oh, and you too...LOL.

              Tanner, you're lucky. The last bike I saw hit a guard rail at that speed, we had to go to the riders home to let his family know he didn't make it.

                  I had to wait in traffic 4 hrs when 6 bikes slipped on oil and two riders were killed from hitting the "safety" rail. Glad to hear you are o.k.

                    why does everyone toss the tl when they get in an accident? the replacements always a gsxr 1k or some other bike you see around every corner so they can get lost in the parking lot next to all the other similar bikes.

                          ya it was on the street and no im not keeping the bike. They wanted $1200.00 for bike, Squished the oil filter and radiator but the engine is great the d&ds are in good shape. the left one is spotless and the right one has two small dents. new tires( pilot powers) and rear end still good you think i should buy it back from the insurance? AND The only reason i said buy a gsxr1000 or r1 is because its to damn hard to find a decent tl1000r around maybe if i spot one i would jump on it in a moment over a gsxr or r1
