If I can convince the police to amend the accident report based on the physical evidence and MY testimony (instead of solely using the other guy’s testimony for the accident report), then I might possibly get my $500 deductible back. I spoke with a member of my church yesterday who is a police officer, and he told me to take this all the way to the top, if need be.
Hey, I just remembered: Governor Mitch Daniels is a biker (see above photo of the Governor on his bike). Maybe I could call in a few favors… Naaah. I hope to get this resolved before it ever got that far.
Kim and I have decided that a new motorcycle will have to wait for now. The earliest that I would buy one would be after we get back from Family Camp at Northland (June 8th-13th, for those of you wishing to steal our dog and all our webkinz while we are away, hint, hint). I will probably wait until after I get back from my brother’s Tiger Cruise in July before I start seriously looking. It is entirely possible that I won’t buy one until next year. I do know that if I haven’t found a good bike for cheap by the end of August, I’m not going to buy one until next spring. We’ll just have to see what God does.
In the mean time, it’s back to the silver beast (my ’02 Grand Am 4 banger) that only gets 20mpg. Ah well. It needs a new driver’s seat, and my wife informed me that the button on the gearshift lever falls out at times. Hmmm. This is the only vehicle we have that hasn’t been “totaled” in the past six months.
