So, I park my bike behind this Jeep Liberty on Esplanade near the Lonsdale Quay this morning. I have only had the damn thing for 10 weeks, and now she has to go in for new fairings, etc.
At least the person who backed into the bike left their card, so I hope the ICBC claim will be approved. A whole doctor's office saw the whole thing, so it should not be a problem. Damage is quite extensive in my opinion. The bar end broke right off on the left hand side, bent the clutch lever, kickstand, and shifter. If I did not have those lowside sliders, I am sure that the damage would be even greater. The thing that really puzzles me, is that the footpeg shattered. It broke in half, and then in three little pieces.
I just hope I can get her repaired and back on the road ASAP. I use it to commute as well, and driving the truck will add 45 minutes each way to my commute since I can't take the HOV lane anymore.
