As many of you know , My bike was stolen not long ago and found a few days later in abbotsford, harmed but not destroyed.
I had Requested ICBC to bring the bike to Carter for inspection cause you never know what problems can arise from being riden for a few days by some hooligans.
It started out that the whole ignition switch along with the casing on the steering wheel had been removed and cracked...On top of that the rear key latch had been removed (pried open more than enything else), with a piece of string attached to the latch cable to release the seat. There are a few scratches that were not there before and who knows what kind of beating the engine took during this ordeal...
My adjuster first told me it was just the ignition switch that was the problem, but when the bike was brought to carter and i had a good look at it, i noticed a few more "problems"...I immediatly contacted the adjuster who sent in a "roadman" to reassess the damage, and the roadman had the gull to say the rear damage was " old" damage?????
On one hand i was contacting the original adjuster and he was quite nice about the whole situation and said that they would do what they could to rectify the problem..On the other hand, the roadman was a complete jerk..He refused to talk to me about the bike and did not want to even see me, and implied that most of the damage was my doing!?
My beef is how the heck is one to know what is old and new damage, especially when its obvious when the bike had been tempered with, and how do i approach the situation?
I am sure some of you have had dealings with ICBC and you may have some input as to how to deal with them.
