I would have had it towed home. And, I would have it towed to the dealership for repairs. The insurance company could try to blame you for internal damages if you rode it with leaking coolant.
After the repairs are made, Request a Diminished value claim. After repairs, your bike will be worth less value than other bikes. Last year my truck and wife's car were parked and both got hit.
We got about 3,500 in Diminished value on a 2015 Tacoma and a 2014 Civic.
I hate insurance companies so much... I might just tell them it was my only form of transportation and ask for a rental car. And wasn't your helmet locked on the bike when the driver hit it? I think you need a shiny new helmet too!
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!
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.
Just showing off mine, how she sits atm, parts are slowly coming in. Atm it's got brocks lowering link and front strap kit. Evil swingarm is purchased and being built this week.
Next month, full exhaust, nitrous and tuner. Then probably taking it down to Chris Moore to get some tuning done...
