HI All, Long time no post!
I had a lovely gentleman decide to pull a U-turn across the road last week without indicating or looking! Such FUN! fortunately I was able to avoid him as best as I could and only hit the front quarter panel. I didn't thisn the damage to the bike was too bad. Hole in the rad, Broken front fog, a couple of panels cracked and the foot rest/gear leaver snapped off but all in all I thought it would be repairable... Apparently, I was wrong.....
Its been deemed a Cat B write off due to frame damage. The bile is a 2017 Grand Tourer and has done 12,000miles. fully serviced and had the extended 4 year warrantee.
The insurance company are offering me £5,032.00 for the bike which I don't think is enough. the cheapest I can find on Auto Trader of a similar age/milage is £6,399.00. However, they have also offered the return of the written off bike for £1,400 and I was wondering if you all thought that was a decent offer? almost every other part of the bike is in good condition, would I be able to break it up and get more than that for the parts?
Anywhoo, your advice is appreciated!
Many Thanks and Stay Safe,
