Wow KS. So glad you are mostly ok. I will throw in a hand working on the bike when you start the rebuild. Looks like a hell of an off. Have been in touch with BW checking on you, hope the next couple days are as comfortable as possible.

Keep us updated.

Shaft separated at U-Joint. If housing was not busted, could have hooked it back up and rolled home. Shaft looked normal.

Well I'll add my 0.02 worth---We had a wonderful day until rounding that corner and seeing KS splayed out --with the bike up on it back and the wheels straight up in the air--bits and pieces everywhere---as I came around further I see KS on his back and not moving ---went back into medic mode and got off Frau Brueller purty quik to get to him--DQ right there with me--after prelim check he looked "shaken and stirred" but all his parts seemed to be there but dizzy as hell---Thank Goodness for helmets and gear-without that he might of not been here---He's a pretty tough ole boy---Made it back home on the trailer of shame and I would not leave until he went to get checked out --So Mama KS gets him ready and off we go to the ER---He comes out walking a little crooked but at least walking- says he's ok and sore -- said he was going home and try to relax--I texted BW and DQ to let them know status and I went on the little jaunt back to my house --about and an hour later when I get home i see that KS texted me so I know that he's ok and he was worried about me getting home---TOLD YA'LL HE'S A TOUGH OLD BOY......... DIDN'T I---

So I would guess that the Rebuild of his bike will be my participation of the next GREAT PROJECT-----
hang in there KS and we'll get patched up and rolling if possible ---maybe Santa can help with some of it

Later KW

Glad you're relatively ok KS. Could have been much worse. Hate the insurance situation. I did about the same thing without collision on the bike, but luckily there was deer hair matted all over the bike so comprehensive picked it up. The agent said without the deer hair I would have been screwed.

I didn't intend to suggest that, but I'm in PA under the influence of Yuengling so surely I cannot be held responsible.

Dang. that sucks. And if I crash one of my bikes I'm going to be in the same boat. but mine are not worth as much as the GS.

I have a few numbers to some bike grave yards, pm me if you want them, i don't know if they have BMW's but it's worth a try if you rebuild it. I say a bikes never dead until you decide it's worth more as parts then whole. but with E-bay and time you can rebuild anything.

just found this

hate it for you KS. Hope your vertigo stays in check, that stuff ain't no joke. Heal up first then worry about the bike.
Deer hair/hide. Now that's an idea...

I like your post, but I sure felt bad to see the man down. The bike is part of the deal, and I was glad to hear that all worked out. Pictures and your story line was good, and I hope to see your State some day. It reminds me of the Eastern side of Alberta Canada in a few of the pictures. Alberta's South/ Eastern most corner of the Province feeds the your State water. It is called the Milk River. I hope to follow it all the way down there on my ride. Keep up the good work, and play safe with wheels down brothers
