    Default Bike dead, rider hurt. I will ride again

    I crashed my Boss Hoss into a concrete Culvert at 70 mile an hour. The bike broke in half. Rider broke bone but walked away (tuff SOB I am).

    In the market for a 2 wheeler. I got a harley still but I want another hoss.

    It was a wild ride. All I remember is flying through the desert and seeing that concrete thinking this is the end. Don't know how I survived. Trucker says he saw a explosion and dust cloud and then a man in a bright shirt slow walking out of the dust like a action movie. Wish it was on film.

    Maybe I am stupid or crazy but all I want to do is get back on 2 wheels. Biker for life.

    Beautiful bike but right now I'm fighting with the insurance company because they say my bike retailed at $6,900. I told them if they could find me Boss Hoss motorcycles that are equivalent to mine for $7000 that I would take four of them. What I can buy is probably going to heavily be dependent on what insurance pays me for my bike.

    What would something like that be running today $$$???

    a little bit of an update I got my memory back. I was riding down the interstate and on all of a sudden my bike changed its demeanor and I was hearing a noise I tried looking behind me but I couldn't see anything. I tried to apply brakes and slow down over on the shoulder but as soon as I hit my brakes the bike started to try to slide sideways. I decided to just let it roll to a stop on the shoulder but then my shoulder disappeared and became an off-ramp. When I tried leaning the bike to take the off ramp there was a huge bump in the bike straightened out and headed towards the desert.

    The pictures and the memory agree with each other because the rear fender was chewed up by the tire meaning that when the bike started to change its demeanor was because the right section of framing that connects to the rear suspension had broken loose. When I tried to make the right hand turn onto the off-ramp the left section broke off and that is what sent me off into the desert. I now know that Boss Hoss realize this was an issue and installed gussets in later made motorcycles so I'm going to contact Boss Hoss and hope they make this right and issue a safety recall on the older bikes.

    I've had this bike for five years and in that time the most weight it's ever had on it was me and my wife totaling maybe 350 lb. At the time of the accident I was a solo Rider and the bike add me and maybe 7 lb worth of tools on it. I am not a big guy maybe 210 pounds at 6 foot tall.

    I don't think all frames are defective , I think it all depends on the integrity of the welds on this section of the frame . Some may break , others will last forever .

    The weld did not break the Chrome Moly tubing broke in half.

    Unfortunately I never read that post until I started researching why my bike failed.
