Default Some Lady back into my bike

Just when i finish my project and fixing my bike up, some lady decides to back into it. i was walking up to my car when i just see this lady back straight into my bike. Breaks my front fender, cracks my side fairing cowl area, scratches my ryt side, bends my bike stand. Who knows what else got bent up. On top of that she then starts blaming me for where i parked.
But in the end she ends up admitting to the police she was at wrong. There goes my summer riding days. who knows how long its gona take to finish fixing things up

An accident like that can't damage the bike's major components that much, to the point of not being able to ride it. Ride it anyway, who cares if it looks a little beat up. And all those things mentioned are easily fixed. Just do it!

Exactly man. I've been riding around for about a year now with a rashed fairing. People occasionally asked what happened, but since it doesn't affect the bike, there's no way I'd miss out on riding. Plus it gives it a little character.

Same! My bike is a little rashed on both sides but that doesn't keep me from riding! Most people don't look that closely at a bike anyways, they just see a bike and say "Oooh nice bike!" lol

I laid mine down in Aug of last year. Fixed all the mechanical things and rode it til the end of the season looking pretty bad but hey I was riding again then fixed the cosmetics over the winter. I am really sorry to hear that, that sucks. Hope she pays to get everything fixed but don't let it stop you from riding for the rest of the season.

I would never ride a rashed bike, but that's just me... All my toys have to be in excellent to showroom condition.
