Some of you will remember when I sold my '07 FJR last year. Beautiful bike, only had 3000 miles, was in absolutely perfect condition. Well I ran into the guy that bought it this morning at the car auction, he recognized me and came up and said hi. I asked him how the bike was, he kind of looked at the ground and mumbled "I totaled it". Evidently he got run off the road on the freeway and wrecked, didn't get seriously injured but the bike was trashed. He said he bought an '09 Concours, I was thinking that's even more bike for him to try and handle.
Sad, that was such a nice bike
A little retrospective...
The day I bought it
Enjoying the countryside
And the neighborhood
Trip to Ohio
Representing with the 'Wings at Gin's Uncle George's memorial
And my final picture of it right before I sold it
Rest in Peace pretty bike, you didn't deserve such a fate!
Thats a big bike to biff, I noticed bikes get totaled out real easy.
Seriously, i was trying to buy a bike the other day that was wrecked it literally needed plastics all around one footpeg and one exhaust pipe. I had to pass cause the insurance company gave it a COD and thus Id have to get a new frame with a title and swap everything over. Seemed silly for a bike that fires right up and is straight... meh.
