Well just the first prang with the bike and it isn't even 3 weeks old! In torrential rain crawling alongside stationary traffic and some **** decided to try to do a u turn at the exact moment I was next to him :mad: Classic SMIDSY. Luckily got away with the impact on the front engine mount so only got a cracked front fairing and a very slightly scuffed engine casing, he got his light, indicator and wing screwed. :) Another bonus point for the naked bike, a faired one would have needed a whole side panel.

In fact the bike is so tough the car bounced off >:D

Actually now the bike has dried out I have had a proper look and basically just a very small crack in the lower part of the radiator cowling, broken bottom clip and a light scuff across the lhs engine cover.

Happy with that considering he will need a new wing, respray, headlight and indicator! :)

Probably would have ended up much worse if had fitted crash bungs as it would have dug in as that was the point of impact.
