Default Dang it!!

Well after a week of blissful ownership my eighteen year old daughter decided to sit on the bike and stand it up needless to say she couldn't and over it went . Damage so far broke right front turn, brake lever, messed up the mirror bar end cover and scratched up the mufflers pretty good to top it off it was in the church parking lot. I felt sick to my stomach she cried shes ok nothing happened to her. She just feels bad that it happened. My concern is how much it is going to cost to repair it. Oh and I think the handlebars themselves are tweaked to.

I feel your pain, a similar thing happened to me. I would check out Honda of Toledo for parts, they give a 20% discount on OEM parts. They're on this site somewhere.

I agree. Had something similar happen about 5 years ago. Based on your insurance history it should be cheaper in the long run to just make a claim. You will want that bike to look like it did the day you brought it happen. Life happens. At least no one was hurt but it still sucks!

Glad your daughter did not get hurt, have insurance cover cost & chalk it up to a life lesson. I'm sure she has.

Sounds like someone's upgrading their grips and maybe exhausts! Nice.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Chances are you can get everything fixed yourself for less than the deductible depending on what it is. Check around, I fixed the broken shift lever (free from an awesome member here), new mirrors, bar end and turn signal for under $100.

Great advice as a father of a 14 and 16 year old myself. Lord knows I messed up plenty as a kid!
