I was in a crash today heading to work over the alex fraser.. a very slow truck pulled into the slow lane in front of me and I had to slam on my breaks.
My front wheel started to skid and i had to dump my bike after I had bled off some of my speed, so i didn't hit the ground too hard. I've got a bit of rash on my knees and one elbow, but otherwise I'm not too bad.
My bike's front right fairing came off, and the left side (which it got dumped on initially) is pretty scraped up. The steering handles on both sides got snapped (but are still on connected to the cables).
I just got off the phone with ICBC and they said that I may not be able to get my bike repaired because the person who cut me off didn't even know I was there.. They didn't stop as I don't think they even saw me, and my bike didn't hit their car. I didn't get a plate number as I was skidding on the ground wondering wtf was happening.
I don't have collision on my insurance.. The ICBC lady said that I may be able to pay a high deductable and get my bike covered under a hit and run fund..
Any suggestions/advice ?
