Cages are a motorcyclists worst nightmare. I always assume, if there is a car slowed down ahead of me going the opposite direction, that their intention is to cut me off. Its almost impossible to properly judge location/speed of a motorcycle in a cage at night. Heck, even in the day, accidents like this happen probably every few minutes throughout the world.
Get well Sir. I've been to that place in life back in 1988, similar situation with a car and nowhere to go... after getting healed up, 24 years and 9 bikes later, I may be there again, but I hope not. If I dig deep down inside, I know she's just a piece of metal sprinkled with some bits of plastic, but I also know that she's part of who I am and I hate to see her all twisted and scraped up. It takes a while to recover. You will.
sorry to hear but glad your alive and ok, take it easy and get yourself healed and don't be a stranger around here. if you feel up to it, buy the bike back from insurance and turn it into track bike or part it out, give you something to do during recovery.
Speaking of helmets, here is mine from a recent 165mph get off, knocked me out for a long time. Check out the inside, those are full penetration cracks in the protective foam. The front of the Shoei X12 just had the face shield blow off!!!
