So here I am heading to work this morning, and someone pulls out in front of me while I'm doing about 50....fortunately I was in my car, cause if I was on the bike I don't think I'd be here typing this. Hopefully my car is totalled cause its gonna cost more to fix it than its worth...I'm fine....bruised knee and a sore neck....

It's awful dangerous around here

I did have a 91 Mitsubishi Eclipse..it was my beater car that got me to and from work..I didn't like it anyway...

And yes I ride to work quite frequently...always puts me in a good frame of mind to face the workday!
It just happened to be raining today and chilly so I took the car

That sucks Will, but at least it wasn't the bike.

The part that really sucks is the insur. company never gives you much for your car.

I know....I'm kinda afraid to hear what they say, but I told my insurance company to proceed as though the other insurance company was going to fight it (in other words I pay the deductible, they do the appraisal and total it, and get me a good price, then they go after the other persons insurance company to get the money back). In the past my insurance company has given me good things when I did it this way. If I wait around for the other insurance company to call me, then I'm at their mercy for whatever they decide on.

actually Jena and I have been talking and I think we are going to go back to a 1 car two motorcycle family for a while...summers almost here and she and I can alternate between riding the bikes and driving the truck. Will save us a little money, and we'll use the insurance money for other things that we want to do with the house.
