Ok so I bought an 08 in blue yesterday morning with zero miles right off the show room floor. I left the dealership at 930 and went straight over to my insurance to get her insured. I then went to my buddys around noon to get them to ride with me. They have an 05 raven and 06 blue. We were on our way to go get either race rails or frame sliders for my new ride. Here's the fun part... We were three wide in front at a red light and the light turns green and my friends take off then the guy behind us does too and I'm still standing there getting ready to go when the guy behind us hits me and runs over my foot. I got him to pull over and this guy was delusional saying I hit him. Then saying I split lanes and came out of nowhere. The evidence is obvious he hit me. And he was driving on a suspended license. All this happened at 115 less then 4 hours after I bought my bike. I'm so pisseeedddd. Lucky me I didn't break any bones or drop my bike. But now I can't ride with a busted rearset and a swollen foot. :curse: I just hope it end up working out.

yeah hopefully new rearsets. And there are a few small scratches on a fairings and idk the name of it but a black piece above the mids. Then if they replace them since it was new and in perfect condition I can sell the old ones =]

That sucks man, but at least this didnt happen in between the dealer and the insurance place cause that would really have sucked.

In Ontario where im at, Cops wont show unless theres an injury or $500+ worth of damage. And that stock rearset is maybe $70. This scenario happened to me as well! Dont think your alone on this lol Accept mine was with a lady friend behind me. Stupid women drivers lol I got a nice gash on my leg from it too..an i think it cost her $70 for the new rear set.

dayumm. That sucks. Are you alright now? I keep calling my insurance and my policy isn't in their computers yet. And I know the other guy isn't going to report it since his car was fine. Cause his bumper hit me in the back of the leg and his tire hit my rearset before it ran my foot over... Oh quick question too how many miles is the break in period? And at how many rpms. The salesman was no help at all. He's just lucky the r6 sells themselves.

should be in your owners manual. mine (r6s though) was like 7000rpm for the first 600 miles, 9000rpm for 1000 miles then game on. oil change at 600 miles.

i did a couple WOT's on the way home from the dealership, and at 600 miles after i changed the oil i called it good and went out on a long ride (100+mph most of the time and on twisties).

it was on the ground I think I just started letting the clutch out unless I was moving from the car hitting me. It's been a very painful experience both physically and emotionally. =[

Where I live if you have an existing insurance policy and you buy a new vehicle of the same type (bike to bike or car to car) you don't have to go right away and get insurance. You have like 10 days to do so.

That doesnt make since - If your license is suspended his car should have been towed.. At least here in Texas and they should have done accident report and checked both of you for insurance... Thats how it works here @ least.... Hope you got the officiers name.
