See the Green Hammer above, was ridden by a bloke heading south I got talking to him on the way to one of our club rides early this year.." hey mate! ya wanna go on a group ride?...follow me!" I said at the traffic lights.....he did, ended up joining up and has been coming on our runs ever since
Today at the meeting point before the run , he says to me "I just saved my bike..they were gonna write it off"....WHAT!!! I said
He dropped it at low speed manuevering on the last poker run...slight damage about a match head of paint missing off the tank and a tiny ding in the front fender, a slight scratch on the exhaust...a broken front blinker....8,500 damage!
Victory dealers done the repair quote..
5K for the tank, 1.8K for the fender and the exhaust and blinker bringing up the rest.
And they would have written it off given current market value of it would be low and itd be classed as an Unrepairable Write-off by insurance so unless one gets a new frame its only worth is parts...how ridiculous!
Anyway he told the insurance that he didnt want it written off and to give him $800 to get the tank repaired himself...that brought it back into the realm of being repairable.
Oh and theyre gonna fit a 'performance' stage one pipe system....
I suggested he get the cash off em and buy a proper performance system but they wont come at that, no way.....
