first, I get a good laugh every time reading members chatter, very funny. Ive decided to do the work myself to repair the damage caused by being rear ended. found the parts online at far better price than at local dealer and will save enough money to pay to have my seat redone at a local motor cycle seat guy called Lamms. i took the rear fender off and checked it out and didnt find any cracks or damage except a six inch scratch, which I can live with but the seat is horrible after 50 miles. figure that 2 hours of labor is all it will take to complete the repair. the Insurance company all ready paid me for damage cause by there client and Im still waiting for my wrist to get better. still painful when twisting the throttle but the x-rays didnt show any fractures or anything odd so Im obtimistic I will recover completely. At first I thought honda sure can find away to make things complicated but after I figure out where those hidden latch pins were it was easy. did not realize that all the fenders and trim panels are all plastic. I was kinda surprised how well dillpickel motor scooter made out after his crash, he said he rode to the dealer, amazing. hope he is doing better.
