So here is my story!
I am on the freeway, get off at my exit. There are two lanes at the end, one to go straight/left, the other to turn right. I am in the turn right lane, lights red and traffic is slowly merging in as it gets a chance. Traffic is pretty steady though so it takes some time to make a merge. There is one car in front and one in back, funny thing is something didnt seem right about car behind me, he was a little far to the left (almost on my side) but I could see his entire self and he clearly saw me.
Car in front finds a gap, pulls out quickly to merge, I look, not enough room to go so I work the clutch (cant recall if I lifted my feet or not but I moved 1-2' so couldnt have been fast) and pull forward to look for an opening. As I am doing this, and am completly stopped both feet down I get flung into the air, he saw his gap and hit the gas hard, was only 3-4' behind me to!
My first reaction after seeing my near mint condition bike on the ground is to go to his window "Did you even see me!!!". He responded saying he did but thought I was going to merge, regardless, let me merge before you floor it int me.
Anyways, I tried lifting the bike, a Harley with a women passenger (thanks!) hopped off the road and helped me lift it then left. Guy gave me information, me being inexperienced in traffic accidents called my dad and told him what happened he told me to make sure I had all the right info from the other guy. Other guy took down my insurance info to "tell his boys what he clipped". Guy was nice, middle aged, driving a nice car so I am sure he will get things fixed.
I had full gear on, will take a close look at gloves but dont think there was any damage, I didnt feel a thing, just a scare.
Both sliders (engine and rear spool) on right side are thrashed, there is a small white scratch on the bottom right lower fairing, Ill try and get some $$$ out of that but its barely noticable and could most likely be cheaply, maybe even sharpied, fixed. Its on the plastic thats angled in and really can only be seen if the bikes on the side stand.
Exhaust midpipe has a real nasty grind in it, will have to fix that. Small scratch on the metal bracket on the end of the high mount devil exhaust.
Thats about it for the right side (side it fell on). He hit me on the rear left side, left some nasty rash on the left tail plastic, knocked it out of place (not sure if any damage was done to it) and bent the plate (FE of some form in place).
Also there is a small crack in the plastic, I am guessing thats enough to get the shop to quote a brand new plastic, which I will likely do, I dont mind a little scratch like that on the lower but dont want rashed and cracked plastics.
Advice? Where to take it? What to say etc... etc..?
What to check, and how to get it paid for (frame, rear wheel, etc...)
