I remember from a while ago reading a post of someone else on a 
motorcycle that had a road debris incident, he said make sure to tell 
them that the debris was moving when you hit it.  You were unable to 
avoid it.  Otherwise it took him the help of a lawyer to get his 
accident damage covered.  Hope that helps!

I didn't think anything of it 'cause I was able to miss it.... or so i thought. 5 miles later I hear a familiar "knock knock" from the engine. I baby it the last mile to work and find the piece of rebar in my oil cooler...wedged perfectly in the plates and knicked a cross tube just enough to cause problems. The dummy oil light never came on.
