That bike thing was crazy. I was at a stop light which turned green. I proceeded about halfway across the intersection and the next thing I knew I had an airbag staring me in the face
A guy on one of those huge Honda Gold Wing type bikes ran the red light at 45 mph or more. Heavy impact that left a hell of a mess (there was detachment involved :yikes: ) The guy was alive and even concious but pretty messed up. Luckily the paramedics were just around the corner. I was not hurt - in fact I was going so slow my face did not even hit the airbag.
My 95 Avus Blue E36 M3 2 dr 5 spd (with 28K miles) was in shambles. Parts of the front of the car were everywhere. Lady with the fire dept. said she hadn't seen a debris field like that before. Did not take the insurance company long to classify it as a total loss :tsk:
Took a while to get the settlement but since the M3 was a weekend driver only, I thought I'd get a roadster. Passed up a chance at a yellow vette conv. 11K off MSRP to stay a BMW owner, but I'm proud of the little car. Got some votes in favorite car at Bimmerfest poll.
