Glad to hear a fellow rider is ok. It's a scary thought to think about a bike that big skidding next to you.

Less than a month ago I hit a deer on my 2013 F800GS at ~60 MPH just a week after I bought it. Once the bike and I finished sliding I was able to pick it up and ride it the last mile to my house. No major injuries just a little belly/knee rash. You are very lucky to be able to say the same. I couldn't imagine hitting a car. I have always been an advocate of proper riding gear and I am even more so now that I think about how bad it would have been if I was only wearing jeans. Sorry about your bike but like everyone says to me, bikes are replaceable. Good luck on your recovery!
