So a few months ago (July 31st to be exact) I got myself into an accident on my way home from work. I've had plenty of low sides and drops, but this was the first time another vehicle was involved.
I didn't think the damage seemed THAT bad. The problem was that there was a lot of damage to the front end and small damage to bits and pieces all over the bike. Long story short the bike got written off.
After a bit of negotiation I managed to keep the bike and still get paid out a decent amount from my insurance, so know I'm in the process of putting her back together. Should be a fun winter project, and I thought I'd keep everyone up to date if anyone is interested.
So far the plan is to go with mostly OEM parts that I can find salvaged. I've already gotten a new headlight assembly, and an upper cowl and clip-ons are in the mail. If Santa is generous to me this year I may also splurge for a few new mods, but time will tell.
Anyways if anyone's got any suggestions let me know!
Here is a photo that I took with my phone the week after the accident, the bike is now in my garage with all the fairings off. Better photos to come as things move forward!!
