first want to say hi new to the site.

well heres my story...

drove 12hrs to pick up the brand new cbr1000 couldnt pass the deal up made sure not to scratch it on the trailer, well got home decide time for test ride around the block. the bike had i want to say .03 on the od. but pulled from the drive way went down to the end of the block to the stop sign and made a right first street was a alley some mexican didnt stop at the stop sign and came rite out in ft of me. nothing to but go down parked car on one side and on coming car in the other lane. i rolled beind the car i dont know how the guy didnt run the bike over. once i was done rolling into the car parked car jumped to my feet and started chasing the the car he didnt stop he ran. 90s accord. its all cosmetic damage but im sure the guy didnt have insurance thats why he ran. the bike now has .5 on the od :crying: . now needing new fairings,mirror, break lever, bar end, footpeg, ft and rear marker lites,and a clutch cover.

i ordered everything expt the fairings and clutch cover any one know where to get some new ones?

yes very lame

i tought it would take less damage if i layed it down instead of hitting it head on and i would have gone over the car.
Over is better than under!

And the bike will stop quicker upright then sliding.
So Id suggest that in general "putting it down" to avoid something is not the best idea.

But glad to hear you are ok.
And yes you are in the running for the "least distance to crash" award (but probably beaten by someone pulling out of a dealer!)

You bought the bike and the dealership hadn't done a test ride to make sure it worked? When I bought mine they wouldn't let me ride it till they fired it up and made sure it started, took off, shifted up + down all gears and the brakes worked. I thought it might just be the dealership policy but a couple guys I know who have bought brand new bikes also said their dealerships did the same.

Also sorry to hear about the bad luck. Glad your ok. An older more experienced rider once told me that, everytime you get on a bike, you gotta ride like everyone on the street is out to kill you. Seems like it more and more everyday. Hope you have insurance. Hope you get it all worked out.

dealer put .5 on it so i dont think they did much..
full coverage. all parts are ordered now. spent about 800 on replacement parts. fairings are used but great shape no scratches. needed upper headlite cowl right mid cowl and tail.

Being my age my deductable for my bike is $500 to keep my premium managable. At $800 for the replacements I wouldn't even file a claim. What year is the bike, 2010? I hear that on the 08's and up the fairings are a pain in the butt to replace. I just did all mine on my 07 it took a while but they were not oem.

i searched for mths to find a 07 i dont like the 08+ they look like crap in my mind. but found one in nc at a dealer a 12hr drive to pick it up. yeah i wasnt planing on claiming it cause premium would go up and id only save 300. but got all parts on the way. so hopefully il have it back together next.

guess its time to pull the dirt bike in and change some sprockets and oil. and time to water test the modded jetskis out.

Good decision albeit a tough one....but at times like that a decision as you made can save your life. Sorry to hear bout the bike. Hope you get her back to new looking again soon:thumb:
