Anyone seen this on the streets of Portland?

So I met the insurance adjuster at the shop today and said goodbye to my good ol' BV500 that I've only been riding for 7 months. Sad. So....question. You Burgman and Majesty owners, where do you get your bikes serviced? Do they provide pre-purchase inspections? Is that even a normal service to get when buying used? I do it for cars, but have no experience with scooters. Should know in the next two days what kind of compensation I'll have to work with when shopping for something…Continue

For those who may be wondering about the nature of the accident, I was almost home from my ride today, when I was stopped behind another car that was stopped at a mid block crosswalk when I got rear ended. Pushed me into the car in front, so there's a lot of damage front and rear. Front fork pushed up against the front cowling, knocked the top case and rack off, lot's of plastic and light lenses flying about. Almost made me cry, seeing my eight month old scoot in that condition.

So right after announcing my one year anniversary of riding, I get into my first accident. I walked away with nary a scratch, but I'm thinking my lovely BV 500 may be toast. Borderline totaled anyway,...we'll see.
In any case, the rest of the summer riding season is kaput!
