    Stinky DeMayo

    Today someone backed a minivan into my Ducati and knocked it over onto its left side. This was bad enough, butt the worst part is that it caused the side stand mount to punch a hole in the crankcase, allowing oil to run out. This could easily result in the insurance company declaring it a "total loss".
    I am desolate.

    Not the kind of duck thread I like to read.

    That's terrible! I hate insurance companies. There's a reason they own the biggest, fanciest buildings in cities.

    Hope that it works out ok.

    That bites!

    Never trust a minivan. I don't park near them, drive near them, and go out of my way to avoid them. Here minivan=lots of kids=distracted driver.

    Agreed. Even with no kids Minivans are dangerous. Chances are a woman is driving. (Call me old fashioned) I also avoid Prius, pick ups and Buicks. Prius=type B personality/slow driver. Buicks=farmers (it's probably Sunday) Pick ups=overcompensating for penis size, aggressive drivers, red neck.

    OK, who haven't I offended yet?

    Getting enough $$$ out of an insurance Co to buy a new bike is like squeezing blood from a turnip. I had a Ninja hit in a parking lot years ago. Just a cracked fairing was enough to total it.
    Sucks doesn't even begin to describe the frustration.
