    The Indian is at Waynesville Indian Dealer Now Their Latest Assessment is it will be repaired unless after tearing it down find more damage than they think it has and then it will be Totaled .. Their Service Manager seems to to know his shit and said call him anytime .. Only thing not happy about here Indian is not famous for quick delivery on Parts .. Hoping I might get Lucky there .. Time Will Tell ..

    Jay, good to know you weren't seriously injured. Hopefully it wont take long to fix the bike. It took 3 months for a Harley dealer to fix my Street Glide last year, after a very similar accident (guy in a van pulled out right in front on me). Had to go back a few times for missed things, luckily tje frame was ok.
    Insurance is a bit defferent here in BC. We have government mandated basic insurance and optional private insurance.
    My private ins company, Intact, were excellent to deal with. Got everything fixed that I showed them, and everything the dealer found. Was bad enough to need major repairs, but not enough to write it off. Here it has to be 70% damaged before they do.
    I also have a lawyer and am in proceedings to settle with the Gov insurance over damages and injuries. It will take some time to get it settled. And to get the bike sorted out. In the meantime, focus on yourself and I hope you heal quickly.

    Finally heard from the Service Manager from Waynesville nothing official yet but said he recommends a Total but the Insurance Company is the deciding factor but the Agents in that area are dumber than a box of rocks .. Pretty Sure for now may go with a Mint Looking 2011 Victory Cross Country can get for $7,500 with 21,000 Miles for the Long Haul and 2 Up, and set the rest aside and see what get for Injuries later on and then might possibly think about another Indian or Harley .. Having one of the Best Victory Wrench/Builder 20 miles is a big factor on this and he has taken care of this ride since it was bought .. Was Service Manager for Victory for 12 years .. All Depends on what I get for the Bike Itself from Insurance .. Have found another 2017 Chieftain Dark Horse for $17,000 with Low Mileage and Bone Stock and also found a sweet looking 2015 Road Glide that might get for 17,000 OTD but the $7,500 will hurt the least in my pocket right now and can set the rest aside and recover most of that 7,500 back in Trade if decide to switch.. Am not totally out of the woods yet or possible damage to myself .. Still have more Medical Tests to do and Doctors to See .. Still have an Elbow and Hip that are swollen pretty good and painful at times ..

    Yep the Healing is the important.. Although Talk about Murphy's Law , was going to take the Dyna for a short ride and found the fuel valve shut off ( petcock) is busted, so be a week before receive that .. I could get a cheap after market china made one but the True HD Fuel Shut Off is $60 and the Chinese Junk is $45 .. I can wait a few days Dr's don't want me to be riding yet anyway ..
