Sorry that happened.. Glad you are still here with us.

To everyone (from the soap box )...
People need to watch those rear view mirrors at stops..

One of the most common fatal accident types for bikers is getting mowed down from behind at stops by drunks and old farts.. An old motorcycle safety study once showed that the same people running over bikers at stops were the same damned people running into the back of school buses.. So its up to you to watch out for *them*. I never relax completely until there are at least 2 stopped cars behind me. Watch the rear-views and if you see someone coming up put the bike in gear just in case you have to move.

When I'm in a 4 wheeled vehicle I will change lanes to get behind bikes at a light for this reason. If someone rams the back of my 4Runner it should at least lessen the force that hits the bikes.

Alright here are some pictures of the damage. Anyone want to take their best guess as to whether or not it is repairable. The rash isn't that bad, i'm more concerned about the impact and if that caused any unnoticeable damage.

The insurance agent has not seen the bike yet and recommended that I just tow it to a shop of my choice. He recommended Colemans. I've gotten one other recommendation in this post that i'm going to follow up on today. Any others?

List of Damage:
Rim
Tires
Left Side Fairing
Air Intake Tube
L Mirror
Clutch Cover
L Shift Pedal
L Foot Pedal
L Passenger Peg
Swing arm spool
Undertail Fairing Kit

Back of the napkin math w/OEM parts ...

Rim - $200 (unloaded)
Tires - $225
Left Side Fairing - $400 w/graphics package.
Air Intake Tube - $120
L Mirror - $95
Clutch Cover - $180
L Shift Pedal - $80
L Foot Pedal - $40
L Passenger Peg - $100
Swing arm spool - ??
Undertail Fairing Kit - $120


Add another $200 for various bolts, washers, and nuts - disposal, mounting and balancing fees.

Labor is whatever the cumulative hours the Chilton guidelines are for the work, but I would presume it should bill out at no more than $70/hr and be no more than 3 hours work.
