I just wanted to add. I'm sorry I posted so many individual replies... I just wanted to reply individually. Thank you. I would very much appreciate advice on whatever the hell happens next.
I'll have you know there's a big difference between us early Gen Zs and the late Gen Z. The late ones are the idiots lol. @MeddiePie I try to park up on the sidewalk whenever possible. I noticed you said there was moto parking but I'm just saying. I only use a regular spot if I absolutely have to and park at the "back" of the spot so others can see my bike. I've started to pull into a spot with a bike or "smart" car in them a couple times. Never gotten close to hitting it though so she must have been coming in pretty hot. Hope you're back on the street soon!Gen Z, people in their teens/early twenties.
Yupp. Was at the after-gathering at my friend's mom's funeral. Parked towards the end of the lot, at the front of the parking spot. Lady came around and ''didn't see'' my bike because of the car next to me. Smacked into the right front fairing, pushed it back kickstand side 4-5 feet and threw it over. Currently waiting on the ''damage assessment'' for insurance reasons. There was a tiny bit of coolant under the bike... when we got it upright it didn't look like it was leaking... about 1.8 miles in it started spewing...
At least she stuck around and didn't bail, she committed 100% to myself, and the police that she was at fault.
Could have been worse I guess, but still fucking sucks. Bike was/is literally 3 months old, 3100 miles. I think that the worst part is just being so out of control. I had nothing to do with the accident (I was inside). I don't know how long it will take for everything to process. I don't know how long it will take to repair. I feel stolen from, like... I can't ride... and it's 100% not even my fault). UGGGHHHH.
It's probably too late now but don't ever tell your insurance if someone else's insurance is covering it. They will take note of it and it's basically a strike against you and increases your risk factor.
