It's not good, but it is fixable, and I'm good.

No video, and only "witness" was a guy that asked if I was ok and then took off. The utility van didn't stop. In all honesty, it was an easily avoidable incident. Even though he was moving slower than traffic, if I'd just been patient and kept my lane for another block he would've been gone, but I wanted to go around him and I paid the price.

I've got too many projects as it is. I feel fairly certain that insurance is going to total it because of the frame damage, but we'll see. Regardless, the damage is mostly just cosmetic, so with just a few parts (shifter, radiator, stator cover) it should be running at least.

Definitely fixable, with probably only a few hundred dollars worth of parts, and I've got a $1,000 deductible (mostly just kept full coverage in case of theft or vandalism). Probably not worth claiming it, but I've also got accident forgiveness. I'm seriously expecting that they'll declare it a total loss and want to take it off my hands. As much as I like this bike, if that happens I might just give it to them and sit on the pay-out until I can get rid of a few more bikes.

As it is, I'm reconsidering my normal means of transportation... If for some reason I'd been able to not fall, it would've just been another one of about 3 times per week that I seem to have a close-encounter with a car that's not paying attention.

Yeah, they basically just take the "buy back" out of the settlement. I think my '86 Venture was about $800 to buy back.

Without taking a much closer look, but doing some quick browsing on ebay...

gas tank $100
stator cover ~$100
radiator $150
shift lever (total guess) $25 ?
left clip on $50
seat cover $75
passenger peg bracket $45
fairing (closest thing I can find) $170
paint (again) $400-800

So if I decide to make everything "right" I'm looking between $1200 and $1600... I just don't have the cash to do that right now and don't want to let it sit. I don't know that the value would take much of a hit with a claim though, as it already has a rebuilt title. (the guy I bought it from purchased it at an insurance auction)

Or.. you can just do some of it for now for about half.. if you have that much... in order to not have to claim it.. and then keep it going as you save up.. Just a thought..

I think I've only ever been in one accident that I could not have avoided by just slowing down. (There wasn't a thing I could do about the oil in the road while pulling up to an intersection... maybe Spiderman-reflexes could've saved it, but it was just gone before I even knew what was happening.) I've got no misconceptions about that. We take risks based on assumptions (like drivers paying attention), and occasionally we make bad assumptions, or just plain bad decisions. I made several, but got to walk away. Not saying the van was blameless for driving like an idjit, but my actions definitely contributed.

I could. I could fix it and ride, fix it and sell it, or just cut my losses on it, knowing it'll cost money I don't have to fix it when I've already got 6 other bikes that need my time and money. We'll see what happens.
