Getting Fixed! Hurrah

Well after two weeks of ownership, some sat nav reading cager bitch decided
to T-bone me on a roundabout! So 2 grand's worth of damage later and much
swearing and grimacing over cracked ribs, her insurance comapany has eventually coughed up to get my brand new bike fixed, i was hit off on the 23rd
of May.

Has anyone had any experience with Suzuki parts coming from outside of europe, because unfortunately they have no front wheels available in europe
at all, so I am assuming they have to come from the factory in Japan, I have
been told up to 3 weeks to get the wheel and obviously I would like my
brand new bike back!!! hit off the day after fitting a power commander as well!!
and I was going sub 30 mph, which was a good thing or else I may have bust my left leg.

Wow, surprised they didn't total it out and buy you a new one. My dad got cut off on an R1 a few years ago, insurance said because the engine is a stressed member it was cheaper to buy a new one than NDI it. Got himself a new one right off a showroom floor, and it sat for the better part of a year before he was healed enough to ride again.

Glad it's coming together for you. Speedy recovery

The title of this thread is misleading. I thought it was about getting a vasectomy.
