so my son borrowed my new scoot and promptly smashed into a van!!!!
he had blown up his ktm 640 the day before
thank god he and girlfriend were ok just a bit shocked and severely damaged pride now i have the task / decision to repair or maybe its too far gone
need a new front fairing for sure
new headlight and lh indicator
and maybe forks ( i had just replaced forks and seals)
not a problem really in the scheme of life
i know its unlikely but if anyone in the uk / europe has any parts to help give me a shout
keep smiling always

Taking it very calmly Kevin! I have never let anyone ride a two wheel vehicle I own. I don't mind lending my car (if the person has insurance) . If he just wrecked his own ride shouldn't that have been a warning? Oh well each to their own.

+1 to everything Old Limey said --and your son needs a serious dope-slap too.

That is surely a major setback. But at least your son and girlfriend walked away from it; that is the most important thing!

things to me are not too important just things
if i have the time i will have a good look at
the bike tomorrow and asses my options
its a bit of a bugger though
but i still have my aprilia sport city 300 so its ok
and another 4 bikes i can ride
unfortunately my wife has been really crook this week
so everything else goes on the back burner
wishes to everyone

My motorcycles are for my enjoyment. When someone asks, I just say, "no" and leave it at that. It doesn't require an explanation. No is a complete sentence.

Main thing is no one was seriously hurt. I hope your insurance wasn't hurt either. Like others here I don't let anyone ride my bikes, mainly because I don't want to feel guilty if something happened to them. Secondarily because I don't want to lose the use of my scooter for a lengthy time while rebuilding or looking for another.
