  • The pics when a bike comes into contact with the burg

    well its almost sunk in now that the burg has been damaged. happened on monday night as i was leavin work.

    some1 from work on there motorbike was in the left hand lane for the roundabout i was in the right i started pullin into the roundabout next thing BANG i think to myself what the F*** was that i know he always goes left and i go right. i slam on get out to find him pinned under the bike on the floor first thing went through my head was s*** hes dead. got him up and he couldnt say sorry enough he knows how much the car means 2 me i was just conserned for him then when i knew he was ok he pointed out look at the car. i was gutted the day after comin back from PV aswell.

    works dnt really describe it so here we are pic from the following morning.








    lets just say my balancin is off a bit lol.
    well if yr gunna do it do it prop didnt miss a panel. just gotta wait now for all the hastle of repairs. gotta take it for the inspection 2mo afternoon and wait for the repair date.
    ive already moved garages 3 time was going the 60mile trip to drive vauxhall in weston but they phoned 2 say they didnt want the work cause it was 2 far for them 2 collect the car. then insurance arranged for some garage dwn cardiff docks. advatages of google earth the place is a s*** hole and looks well safe with gipsee site 100yds dwn the road and scrappy next door and the quote from there site yr cars are keep in a secure compound. did street view and theres a big whole in the fence so now its off to fordthorne cardiff. ill keep updated with the costs had a cash quote of £1100 + that was with the alloy being repaired but i want a new 1 as look closer to see the spoke has bent.

            thats looks nasty , glad everyones ok now thats out of the way did he give a reason why he drove into you as you said he normaly turns left , as for the price tbh i`de say thats a little on the cheap side ,
            i know you probably know this and already going to do this but make sure the job they do is perfect , check paintwork ect for exact match even if this means taking your own light source and ask the to takes measurements of paint thickness whilst your there for and compare it with other side of car , and yes a new wheel is needed as theres no way of knowing if the wheel has fractures inside which could in time become dangerous ,

                          It would only go on the register if it was written off. There are millions of cars repaired by insurance companies that don't go on the register.
