Re: bike insurance

Yep, I think that bottom plastic side piece is over $2k by itself.....
ah well, it's only money huh?
Guess that's why we have insurance.... (you do, dont you????)

Glad you got to see the mountain, the pic is familiar, if only a little clearer...
and perhaps a little less snow and sleet
(We didn't get to ride in there either, had to take the bus!)

A trip you'll never forget, I hope to do it again sooner rather than later.

cheers

Re: bike insurance

Hi Linton,
Is that the total extent of the damage? Not sure that I see $3000 there as most of it appears rather superficial rather than any structural damage...unless of course you are talking brand new OEM replacements for everything...

If you have insurance I guess it is a matter for them and of course any excess that you have. Depending on the latter, one consideration might be second hand parts from a wrecker or perhaps off eBay...in the States there are heaps of machines 'parted out' on eBay and other sites... Just some thoughts...

Regards,

Ian

Re: bike insurance

hi all
yes I could repair it myself for a small amount of the estimate but as you say, thats is why we have insurance, the price is total replacement using pre-painted panels, I did think about not using insurance and fixing it up, but when I got a couple of prices and I picked myself up off the floor, slapped myself a couple of times for falling off in the first place,, well you know the rest.

Cool Re: bike insurance

My brake lever was in the almost same shape. was able to bend it back, this one time. next incident will most likely snap it off, but for now it is solid and you need a close look to see the ding.

also someone on this site sells covers for the side trunk tip over wing, and a body shop may be able to fix the painted portion for a reasonable price.
