Hi folks, I've had my '04 V2000 for about 6 weeks and absolutely love it. Was on a long ride yesterday having already covered about 250 miles around mid and west Wales UK and was heading home. I was riding along a fast long clear stretch of road and about to overtake slower moving vehicles when Bang ! The vehicle in front of me pulled out into my path, hit me off at 70 mph and drove off failing to stop. Not a witness in sight, bummer. I bounced and slid for a good distance, lucky I had the right kit on which saved me. Spent a few hours in hospital, broken elbow joint, ankle and right thumb. Glad to be alive. The bike has damage to the fuel tank, belt and cogg etc etc. I'm gutted ! I'm not leaving this forum though and feel that it's the best one that I'd ever been attached to, and i've been a member of a few over the years. Don't know what the insurance assessor will say about the bike, looks like it's pretty much over I think. Be careful out there folks, peace to you all and watch those damn cars ! I'll keep you all updated and thanks.
