Hey Guys, I had a look with the search function and found a few threads about this but none for people without insurance. I had parked my bike the other day to go into the bank, after leaving the bank a lady approached me and asked me if I owned the bike out front, she told me it had been knocked over and a truck driver out the front has the details. I came out and sure enough it was on its side. I got the details of the car off the driver and he seemed keen to make a statement. I went to the police station and did the usual report/statement and they got the drivers information. The police officer asked me if I would like to press charges before I left and I said "no, if he is going to cooperate" The driver is claiming he didn't know he hit my bike and tries to get into yelling matches with me so I went back to the police station to press charges and he said he can’t as the driver claims he didn't know he hit me. I tried to make him elaborate on why I could press charges before but this seemed to make him angry. I'm guessing my next step is to seek legal council and see what they say. I've spoken to my witness and his more than happy to give statements. My question is has anybody had experience with this? The bike has cracks on the fairing, dented and scratched exhaust, broken mirror, broken indicator, scratched clutch plate cover, I’m guessing close to $1000 damage. Is it worth pursuing this? To be honest I will be happy to pay more than the damage in legal fees to make sure this guy learns a lesson.
