Not sure how to start this off, still rather bummed by the whole thing, a couple of weeks ago I was coming from a little place south called Ulladulla, and a storm hit as I was proceeding home. Been on my Red Ps now for around a month and still practicing, but haven't rode much since I came off. I was coming around a corner when what I would assume my back wheel hit a puddle of water whilst I was turning which sent me off balance and I came off. Being my second time coming off I didn't make the mistakes I did last time but this time was on my brand new XVS650. I got my bike checked out by the local guys at Great Southern Motorcycles at Nowra, it would seem I've done a fair bit of damage, in the couple of thousands, not sure whether I should go straight for my insurance or save up, I haven't really been informed on at fault claims so I'm a little concerned. Apparently I've bent my handlebars and my heated grips are basically destroyed, with a few scratches and tears on my blinkers, saddlebags and pegs. One of my exhausts have been shaved and is now flat on one side apposed to being a cylinder. A simple scratch on my right arm was all I suffered more worried about the bike at this point in time. The two images above are basically the more noticeable.
