So I was at work saturday, got a phone call, I was told that a 200 year old white oak tree had just fell on my 14'x14' outbuilding. Can anyone guess what was in that outbuilding, thats right, my Fury. When I got home the whole thing was flat. All I could see of the Fury was the tail light and around front the headlight, the rest was under mounds of tree and lumber and metal roofing. We cleared enough away and the Fury was holding a lot of weight but we got her out. Just by looking at it theres not much damage, but when you ride her, theres definitely something wrong, she wants to run sideways now. Anyway I think I lost her, insurance adjusters will be here in a day or two to look at her. If totaled, got my eye on another one. I will put some pics on here later of the mess.

Ugghhhh is right... Sorry to hear about your loss... I would have had a few choice of other words but ugghhhh fits in this situation. Hope they either fix her or that they give enough to buy a new one... Fingers crossed.

Look on the bright side, you got a chance to correct your color choice to black!

But seriously, sorry to hear it. Make sure you swap all your stock parts back on before they total it.

Sorry man, that's really bad news but at least no one was in the building and no one got hurt. Me personally I would want the insurance guy to total the bike so I can get a new one seems fixing something like that and it never rides right again

I agree. If it's not running true, maybe the frame got bent and it would never run true again. Take a tree branch to it and make sure it gets totaled.

Seriously, that really sucks. I hope it works out for you. Good luck.

Hell if I was 200 years old I would probably have a tendency to fall over also. Bummer to hear about it, strip a few things off of it without making it look obvious to save for later, like the engine, rims, stuff you can keep as spares or sell on ebay :D. Get some pics up when you can. :)

Read your post and it made me sick! Bikes can be replaced. Count your blessings and your insurance money! Hope you are back in the saddle soon and keep us posted.

Sorry to hear bout your loss , But on the plus side if you burn firewood you should have enough heat for next season . If not you could make a few bucks from selling it and get out a little bit of frustration with a chainsaw .

Like a good neighbor, state farm is there... WITH A NEW FURY!


P.S. Don't forget to tell them about the 300 diamonds that were glued to your fuel tank... The tree must've knocked them off, into the drain down the street.
