Unhappy Lady Killed my 30th Anniversary Today

Parked it perfectly, in a nice space. Went in for coffee. 15 minutes later dude comes up, "Hey man, is that your bike outside?"

For a nanosecond I thought he was going to ask me about the bike but then I just knew something had happened.

Lady was getting coffee for her boss, backed into the parking space I was in, and pushed my bike off the sidestand.

It fell into a concrete curb. Big dent in the frame. New bike, less than 6 months old. No way I am riding or keeping a bike with a damaged frame.

Insurance company contacted, next week hopefully adjusters, estimates, and repairs underway.

What are the chances of this bike being totaled because of this? Anyone know? Because it's got to be a lot of labor to tear an entire motorcycle apart and replace the frame, no?

I won't accept anything but it being put perfect again.

I imagine this lady will be more careful when backing up again. I hope so.

99% chance it's a total loss. Doesn't take much damage to total out a motorcycle due to the labor to inspect and repair.

^i agree, it won't be cheap tearing every part off bike to install it on new frame... Man I think I'd be experiencing my last day of freedom if that happened to me. I'd be wound up like an 8 day clock.

I rode my last loop on that bike today. Didn't know the frame was damaged. Never again at least with that VIN#.

And yeah, I'm not happy about it. But it's been assigned to a claims adjuster, she's got Allstate thank goodness, and hopefully we can get this figured out.

But even in the best scenario I'll guess it's at least 6-8 weeks before I can ride it again. Don't need many parts, just the frame and one panel from what I can see, but labor will be serious. Felt very good today so I got a great memory of that bike. Has like 4400 miles or thereabouts.

Damn that sucks...unless you're in the mood for a new bike.

With frame damage, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a total loss and they'll be writing a check.

Look at the bright side. You're getting a brand new ride and you weren't actually ON the bike when she decided to try and crush it. You may want to buy a lotto ticket today too while there's still time!

My 2011 ZX had a tiny little dent in the frame and it was a total loss. Make sure you push for all your aftermarket parts to be covered as well.

Hate to hear it Scout. Look at it this way, you wont have to change the oil in it.

Scout isn't in here yet.. I'm confused lol.


My CBR had a tiny crack in the frame and it was totaled because of it..
Most likely it will be going byebye..

If they do are you going to get another gen 4?
