Bike was parked on the side of a road in a neighborhood in Ashville NC. A drunk driver was going down the road at 65+ mph and struck a parked truck which in turn hit an SUV which then hit my friends vfr and my fz1. The bike was hit pretty hard on the front fairing and wheel before it tipped on its side and hit the curb. Fixable? Without a doubt, it will just take a lot of parts. I figure with forums and ebay however I could fix it for $400 and pocket the rest from insurance.

It's a pretty healthy list of parts to be fix from the insurance companies standpoint however so they might just total it out. Should know sometime tomorrow what they decide.

I love the bike, think its one of the best all around bikes ever made. Not sure what I would replace it with. I want to like the second gen fz1 but its just not the same bike. Whatever I get needs to be dead nuts realizable though.
