Oh bollox, just seen this....sorry to hear JB but at least you're ok.
It must have been emotional to see a van climbing over the front wheel of the 1125.
Hopefully the insurance gets sorted speedily and to your advantage....would you consider a CR now if you find one?....let me know if you need to do a longer test ride on one to truly appreciate the difference and we could sort something out.Social distancing applies of course..👍
Yeah it certainly was, managed to keep my cool though & I'm over it now. It's gone
Maybe get a spares donor out of it with the salvage if I'm lucky.
His insurance rang this Am to try & settle without a claim which I would've been tempted to do if they'd been a bit quicker.
I had 3 days before my 1125r had to go to be assessed, so sorted out what I needed to before letting it go, as I know they'll probably write it off & once it was out of my hands it was open to thieving mitts and other abuses by anyone who came in contact with it.
Plenty more out there & I have all the bits to do what my old one had done to hand now so no waiting around & I still have all the conversion stuff for CR gearing (except a belt) for an 1125r. I also have shit loads of spares that I've built up as you do with something you intend to keep.
Cr? Why not if it was well sorted (stator mod & charging system) & a stack of trick bits similar to the one that was for sale on here a couple of months ago, but to me they feel a bit more reserved, tighter & smaller than the 1125r. We'll see, I guess it depends on what's about.
The Honda CB 1000r they left me is as f****n' boring as an episode of East Enders, so the quicker it all gets done the better for me whatever.
Hope you're well buddy, Stay safe. JB.
