Unhappy Totaled Fury

Totaled the Fury on Mt. Evans, CO two weeks ago and bought it back yesterday.

I walked away with a couple bones in my wrist shattered in ten pieces and another dislocated. No, i wasn't wearing a seat belt. I now have seven screws, a plate, and a bone graft.



The left side of the bike is FUBAR.


Looking for left hand contol/switch assembly, left foot contol peg assembly, clutch perch, and headlight for now.

2140 miles on the Fury this season. When I'm well, i'll tear down and rebuild.

Wow, sorry to hear that...At least you came out of it fairly OK.
Everything else are material things, they can be fix or replace.

Ironically, I was reading a memorial sign of someone who died on the tight downsloap turn. All i remember is the bike sliding out from me and smashing my face into the pavement. I need a root canal on a front tooth due to nerve damage. I must have locked up the brakes to stop from going over the edge? I assume the front brake locked up too hard and the bike lost control.
I AM ok but i did everything i could to save the MFR's LOL.

Oh man, I really feel for you. That sucks. Hopefully you heal quick and everyone chips in to help you with parts. How about a pic of your face after you did the face plant? Let us know how we can help.
