This is crazy! I understand you being all pissed off & everything but, damn you got hit by a semi-truck?!!! People don't usually just walk away from something like that! They die! You are one lucky dude. You better count your blessings!

People in cars get killed when they tangle with a semi-truck. To be on a bike & get hit, that don't happen everyday. The Man upstairs must have a plan for you.

Every swinging dick sward. Starts from BootCamp. Lol. Glad your okay. Not sure why it would cost 8k unless you known little of bikes and they are trying to stick it to you.

To some people its a rocket.
To others it's freedom. (zx9r)

Yea. they didnt see the damage, i was trying to explain it to them on the phone. They have to think the bike is more damaged than it is or something. I'll do the repairs myself, i was just hoping you guys would know what piece that is I broke. I've been trying to find a parts sheet and have been unsuccessful so far.

Indeed. It's a little hard to believe that someone who was hit by a semi at 80mph only broke a footpeg.

Did you figure out where the oil was coming from?

After reading this thread, I can only assume that your bike has majical powers against damage, and you are the luckiest SOB I ever seen. Are you sure you were doing 80:headscratch

Thank God you are alright, especially without a helmet. Repairs should not be bad and they may have quoted sick #'s because they did not see the bike yet. What about insurance, are you going to file a claim?
