Depending on speed of Dave during the wreck.

Usually fork folds under frame.
I've split the mag wheel down the middle.

Good luck. Took more than a cripple and another dude to load up my bike.

We do know that the world does have at least a few good men. But there are also those others...

If the forks are bent the frame is likely bent as well.
I'd be shopping for a whole new bike and keep this one for parts.
Start gathering ads and comps and get a big check from the Insurance Co.

If the guy had no insurance I'd get a lawyer and go after him.
Or maybe you won't have to if you had full coverage...

They should be renting you a car since you shouldn't ride with a busted foot and the bike was your primary transpo.
Get something that is easy to get in and out of. SUV - Mini van *spit*

Well, Dave, when you get feeling a bit more like yourself, let me know what we need to do to get you up and running. I know I worked with you on your bike before, but for the life of me I can't remember what we did. Anyway, maybe we can get George involved too (he hasn't been feeling well for a while), but I am sure he wouldn't mind if we used his garage since it's probably the closest thing we have to a halfway point. I'm thinking he may not be up to very much actual bending over and wrenching, but I know he would enjoy the company. I need to make him some battery cables too, so I will need to run over there soon.

Oh, waitaminit, is your wife a dog groomer? Maybe I just remembered who you are.
