    so out ridin the new viffer with my missus and a mate with his girl on his new sv 1000, havin a great time. thought we would go find some ice cream after the cruise. low and behold the specialty shop has closed so its headin back to mine for whats in the fridge.

    On the way back, we go around a roundabout, start heading down the road when "HOLY CRAPPOLA!" i start emergency braking due to a Mr Whippy van doing a U-Turn infront of me. with the little extra weight of the missus (te he, shes not fat but ill run with that for the moment) i fail to stop in time slaming into the back corner of the "van".

    i managed to keep it upright (WOOT! even though EVERYONE says "where did you drop it?") we all pull over and no one is hurt...*edit* except my balls which slammed into the tank.

    he has stuff all damage and says "im prepared to pay for mine, it wasnt my fault". Ive turned numb of all feelings, gets his name and deals with paperwork and issues later.Only minor damage but enough to upset me.

    Just got it back today, thanks to causeway honda for the repairs and finally i have some sort of smile back on my dial.

          Isn't anyone hitting you while doing a u-turn pretty much automatically your fault? ie. you need to have sufficient visibility to perform the manouver?

          Glad to hear you're back on the road

              ive talked to many where the law states when you are entering a main road "you must give way/make sure the way is clear to perform a u-turn/merge onto the road." (along the lines of)

              ive yet to hear a police result as it is deemed a "minor" accident where no-one was seriously hurt with no major damage (like in a shopping center) so its been "filed" and if anyone is to receive any charge, well...they will be informed.

              the bottom line is ive paid $400 excess and me bike is back (est. repair cost under $2000). ive now got to do a little bit of running around and the insurance will do the rest.
              gotta wait n see if i get any kind of return.

                Hopefully the insurance co would claim from said asshat and refund you the excess.

                          Where abouts was it? and do you remember any details of the van? I may know the bloke as i used to work as a Mr. Whippy, in his defence some of those vans are dodgy to drive, but nonetheless, he should have been watching out for traffic

                              Shitty vehicle condition isn't any form of defence.

                              If the vehicle isn't suitable to be driven on the roads, then it probably shouldn't be, right?
