Wow, nice looking bike! Sorry to here about your accident and glad your both are ok. On the bright side, the rebuild should be fun!

So let me get this straight. You didn't make contact with the vehicle? But the other drivers insurance paid out, simply because 'you had to lay the bike down'. That's seriously one of the dumbest things people can say. I feel sorry for the old man his premiums now will go up even though he didn't contact you and you were probably riding in his blind spot anyway. Good luck with the cheap arse fairing.

The driver admitted fault to his insurance and I had witnesses, so GEICO went straight to payment. I didn't hit them with any injuries, so I think they were glad to finish the deal. It was very fair based on my research of parts and labor.
sounds like a good deal, considering what happened. lucky.
I feel so censored

I don't think you understood the situation. He made a left turn from the other side of the road coming straight at me. Then he stopped dead in front of me when he finally saw me, so I had no place to go. He's lucky I was on the ball and laid the bike down instead of plowing into him. Plenty of witnesses. It could have been a lot worse for both of us!!

Just got my new levers and all the decals in place. The Auctmart fairings are great.
