Sat on my Harley in Cheddar gorge Somerset when the camper van in front decides he will reverse over the front of the bike, both my pillion and I are unscathed and the bike was rideable once the front mudguard had been lifted off the tyre. crash bars worked a treat but still quite a bit of cosmetic damage but lucky enough to have quite a few witnesses who gave statements so insurance claim should be straight forward but getting the work done usually takes the time.

I'm speechless. I'm amazed how some people are allowed on the road.

Hope you are both ok and that things get sorted quickly:)

Thanks El Toro I have been riding for over 30 years with no major accidents until last October when a car pulled out on my CBF1000 resulting in a few broken bones, must admit it did knock my confidence a little and now the buggers are trying to squash me when I'm sat in traffic.

I am coming off of my first accident (Jan 19, 2015) as well. It took 4 months for them to sort out the parts for my First Run Scout, but I got the call this Saturday that it is "done." They are still waiting on a genuine shifter piece, but they were able to get an equivalent part to work until the genuine part comes in.

I am nervous as hell. I had a little girl pull out in front of me making a left across 2 lanes and a median. Stupid girl. Never even saw me. I thought she had because she rolled up to the stop sign and hesitated. Then she went for it. The result was a shattered left foot and a lawsuit against her insurance co. I am in the beginning stages of all of that and in a whole heap of debt. I was in a boot for 3 months and am about 2 or so weeks back putting two shoes on again.

Good luck with your insurance claim. I hope it goes way better than mine!
