Wondering if anyone out there has some good suggestions for my situation. I crashed my bike just over 3 wks ago. ICBC has stated it was 100% my fault. The other vehicle involved has been fixed at a cost of $2500. The estimate on my 2004 636 Ninja came in at $4270. The damage is all cosmetic & there is no frame, sub frame or fork damage. I paid $8k for the bike last summer & have spent a small fortune on lowering it. The options I have are:
1) Have ICBC fix my bike - I'm worried about the saleabilty of my bike down the road as it will have a large declaration on it, even though it's all cosmetic...
2) Have my bike written off, ICBC gives me the $4270 & the bike goes to the auction & whatever it brings in under the $3K window is mine
3) Pay out the $2500 for the other car's damage & fix my bike on my own.
If it was your bike what would you do? Thanks in advance for your help
