Replace wrecked motorcycle with a trike
Organized by: Deborah McKague
I am sorry this video is not captioned for you as we are hearing impaired and I do not know how to create captions for you.
Here is the summary of what happened.
I bought green bike for my 50th birthday 7 years ago. My husband (at that time July 10, 2010 he was my boyfriend) was riding my bike from Virginia to Tenn for vacation.
He hit bad road as shown in video that he lost control of bike and flew 15 feet in air and landed several feet away and rolled several times as bike rolled several times.
He suffered traumatic brain injury, multiple broken bones.
The bike sustained over $8,000 in damages.
At that time, I have motorcycle insurance and my husband (at that time he was my boyfriend) he has motorcycle insurance and both of us are from same insurance company. I filed claim to get it fixed and was turned down because he was riding my bike. So, I filed under his insurance and it was turned down because the bike was mine. DOUBLE STANDARD!
So, I had to pay $2,000 out of my own pocket and with help of Rick Doss, Harley builder and Kick'n Kenny Perguson for paint job. Thank you guys!!
Then I had double hip replaced, I lost my job and my husband lost his job.
We are both on disability and unable to work.
I have been itching to ride again and would like to buy a used trike with disability income.
I tried applying for motorcycle loan several times but because, I filed bankruptcy when I lost my job after double hip replacement surgeries and my credit was ruined.
We did file lawsuit against the state for poor road condition and the settlement was enough to pay off all medical bills with no money left to replace my motorcycle. I could not sue the insurance company for misrepresenting us because of statue of limitation has passed.
Brothers and sisters of motorcycling world, if you have few dollars to send towards purchasing a trike, please share this with everyone.
God Bless you for taking this into consideration.
