My bike got hit in a parking lot! D:
Well, my bike was hit in a parking lot the other day. Good news is the guy stuck around and his insurance company is taking full responsibility. Now I'm just hoping the adjuster doesn't try and downplay the damage done to the bike. Anyways, front upper cowl is damaged, front upper stay is bent, tail fairing is raped, and the worst part... my akra pipe is scuffed up something mean. Despite what people say about Akra pipes being overpriced and not offering as much gains as the Satos or whatever, I love the way they sound, the way they look and etc. But the problem is that they don't make 'em anymore from what I understand.
I hope to be getting a check for the damages, but the question is, do I repair all this on a bike with 25k miles or should I cut my losses, sell my bike as is for dirt cheap and get back on the hunt for another RC51? Despite the back n' forth I've had with this bike, I couldn't imagine being as happy with another bike for now. The powerband is perfect for my learning curve and I've actually become accustomed to the insanely cramped riding position it requires.
