Noooo!

Not a post anyone wants to read about but glad you're ok. Sounds like that neck brace saved you. There's no telling what could've happened had you not had it.

What do you make of the damage? Are any of the parts salvageable? I wonder what insurance will do in this case.

Any chance you'll be posting video of the encounter? by r083rt

I am glad I was wearing it -really glad!

I know the rear sub-frame is bent an it is a steel one from Archimedes in Italy so I wonder what the rear of the main frame look looks like. The exhaust hanger attachment on the frame is really bent and so is the exhaust. which is dented. I broke off one of the blinker switches when I punched it with my thumb and I could not find it on the street. Other than that it had some scratches on the TT head guard.

I had turned my GOPRO off when I realized that I was only going to do some street riding. It is really boring for me to watch street riding - so no video.

I hope the bike is salvageable. I will be contacting the local BMW dealer to drop it off for an estimate. The rear subframes are a bit expensive and so will a new exhaust.

Thanks,

Dude, so sorry! Glad you're OK and stay that way! Don't let the insurance guys low ball you. Fix it completely or get/find you a replacement. I had to go out and prove the worth of mine before they "got it" and paid full boat for a suitable used replacement. But mine was totaled. I bought the hulk back and sold it to the guy I found that had one for what I paid for it. He fixed it and it's still on the trail the last I heard.... Truly hope you're OK. by rokrie

Thanks Rokrie -
Yes, I get to start t deal with he insurance company today. It just set in yesterday that the bike was ready to go at the start of a new riding season and now I have to do a bunch of work on it. I was thinking about selling one of my HP2s to buy an R Nine T Urban and now I am glad I didn't move on the impulse.

I will try to keep this thread updates as to my progress. My insurance and the guy who hit have the same insurance - State Farm so maybe that will make it cleaner. We shall see.

Ride safely and wear your riding gear!

Take care,
Jeff - Sno Dawg

Ask Bmw if they have in stock the rear frame.
I was last year in idea to rebuild an hp2 with the front frame
out of work,so I asked to Bmw ,they don’t have at the moment but it was on the tube to make a new series of x front frame in June 2017,so perhaps they have done the same for the back frame,normally your dealer know . by leolou

Wow, man!
I very rarely post here, but I really gotta say: Glad to have you back here alive!!!

I don't know the habits in the US, but here in Germany, we usually have the vehicle checked by an authorized expert (or maybe expert witness, I am not sure about the correct translation). The insurance of the one who is found guilty usually pays that expert.

I could imagine that there are more things damaged than what you posted above.
Thinkin' of
- rear rim, incl. spokes and tire. (Replace the rear tire anyway, tires have some kinda memory. They never forget...)
- the bearings that connect the final drive to the rear links and the links to the subframe.
- the bearing(s) inside the final drive surely got something as well hopefully not the crown wheel itself and its counterpart.
- also I would have taken in consideration to have the gearbox checked for minor cracks and the bearing of the gearbox outlet shaft. (also on the engine side of the gearbox!)

The punch that surely hit the rear wheel was transmitted upwards the whole drivetrain until there was nothing to damage anymore.

It would be a pity, if you hadn't had that checked and would stumble over accident-related problems later, when only you are the guy to pay for...


But, again!
Everythin, that's really important is fine and I am glad about that!

kind regards from Munich!

Damn. Glad you're mostly OK, amigo. Bikes can always be replaced, even HP2s.

Though I like what you've done with the exhaust. That bike can now do about 6" deeper water crossings than it previously could.

Good luck with it! I hope it can be repaired. by space

Hey Markus and Jake -
I got a little lucky and really hope the bike can be fixed and kept. I am sure it is just a matter of price. Markus, thank you for the list of items. I already talked to the local BMW shop and told them that I would bring in a list of things to check and your info is a fantastic start - better safe than sorry. The guy at the shop was very cooperative and said if I brought in the list we could go over it to check those items carefully.

Bike is going in tomorrow.

Thanks again,
Jeff by SnoDawg
