Rumor: Himmelsbach truck flips on I95.
« on: March 12, 2005, 05:37:56 am »
I heard a rumor that Mike Himmelsbach's truck fliped over on I95 inroute to daytona. Everything in the truck and trailer was a total loss, bikes, tools, gear, you name it it was all over I95. Just wondering if anyone had any news on this, and if everyone was ok.

I26 is about 30 miles from where I live, and we have had some seriously gusty wind off and on for the last week or so. Glad to see everyone was ok, but I feel bad for the tree. I don't think it saw it coming.

Oh ok thanks for the link. I over heard someone talking and they said I95, but the story clears it all up. Good thing everyone was ok, too bad about everything else.

God, what a nightmare.  You know that the bikes weren't insured, and it will be hard to get the insurance company to cover anything more than the truck itself.  That's a serious setback for anyone to have to suffer.  I've often thought about how much money is packed into my little trailer.  If it were stolen or destroyed, I'd be out of the game for good, and there's really no way to insure all that stuff.

The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"

i checked with my insurance when we bought our trailer.. as long as it's hooked to the truck it's covered. if it's not the my homeowners ins. covers it. our agent just told us to take pictures or video of what we put inside for proof it was there. and we even asked about the bikes since the wife's is a track only w/ no insurance of it's own. ... everything inside is covered minus the deductable. we even lowered our deductable to make sure it dosn't set us back too far.

Wow... that TOTALLY sucks, to bin your whole show without even getting to the track.

Thank God (literally) everyone was okay.

have you double checked that ., I was rearended an the guy had no insurance., i figure no problem as i had asked the same thing before hand about the trailer., the only thing that is covered is if you hit someone else with the trailer., not the trailer or the contents., and i had full coverage on the truck.,  >:(

so i now have a separate policy to cover the trailer for collision and the contents., it was only $55 for a year.,   i was so pissed at my insurance guys ., if they had told me i needed it for $55 i would have got it in a heart beat .,

so anyone and every one., check with them again.,

my homeowners would not even cover it., when it came time to fess up..

Old topic...  I spent literally months battling with my insurance company to cover the racebike.  They simply won't do it.  They will cover all my dirt bikes, but they have to be insured as vehicles.  In the end, I sit with a lot of uninsured bikes...  :-/

Well, sure..  however, when they find out that it is a racebike (which is a HIGH possibility in my case), I end up getting nailed for insurance fraud.  

They specifically ask if it will be used for racing.
