Got my V back today!

I got my "V" back today after one month of deprivation. I got hit from behind by a car, fell on the left side. 1500$ damage in scratches. Some parts where back order and lost many nice riding days

Anyway, the bike looks like a new one and still few riding days ahead

Glad that you were not hurt. I think one month from accident to getting it back isn't to bad for a motorcycle.

Glad you and the bike are still in one piece. Too bad about the expense.

With so many people not paying attention, and talking on their cell phones, I'm most concerned about getting whacked from behind when stopped. I check my mirrors like crazy, and always have a escape path.

I often wondered how I'd feel about getting back on the bike if I'm unfortunate enough to get hit. What are your thoughts on this?

Believe it or not, it is the third time that it happens to me. Twice on my previous bike: V-Star (that finally caugh fire while riding R.I.P.) and now on the "V".

So, as I have never been injured, it is always good to get back on the bike, but now, I fear the next time something happen .

That's why when I'm at a stoplight I've always got an escape route and the bike is pointed at it. My focus is on my mirrors and the bike stays in gear until there are at least two shields... errr cages behind me. I assume these were fairly low speed accidents? Welcome back to two wheels, now enjoy winter
