    Crash on the way to Shilo rally/need parts

    Well the trip to Shilo rally didn't go quite as planned. I made it about 30 mi from Pickwick and woke up in the back of an ambulance. I have no idea what happen.Alot of scuff and bruises. If i did'nt wear a full face helment it would have been alot worse, apparently I went down face first , not even a scuff on my gloves. If anyone has a upper faring and left front foot peg let me know. I think a good body shop can repair the side panels.
    Thanks,
    Don

    It might help if you stated which bike, the 03K1200RS or the 97RT. Just sayin'.

    It sounds as if you either hit an obstacle in the road, were rear-ended by an SUV, or struck by a meteor.

    I'm certainly glad you're substantially okay. I recently went down when a Verizon service truck pulled out head-on about 20 feet in front of me on a narrow side street. Luckily I had come to a full stop when he rammed me lightly (chatting on his cell phone). I was unhurt except for a cracked rib, but my K75S is still in surgery awaiting an upper front side panel.

    It happens.

    I am glad you are ok. We heard about your accident at the rally.
    You may want to check ebay for parts.

    Well it has been over a week now, and i still dont remember the accident but I am ok i type alittle slower and can't ever find my coffee or pen. I get a ct scan this week but i feel all will be ok. I have located a center faring but still no foot peg or turn signal. For now I may leave thr war wound on the left side. I think the radiator can be repaired. With no real delays i will be riding again in about two weeks. thanks for the support
