Crashed the BMW Demo Bike!
This weekend has been very crappy. I visited the BMW dealership and was interested in the K1200R. After some discussion, the salesman offered I ride the demo bike and test it out myself. I signed the release form, and off I go on the bike.
A tight turn, new tires, and a wet rode made me lowside the bike. I am not injured thank God, just a couple of scratches and a bruise. However, the bike is damaged beyond what you would expect for a lowside.
The dealer says cost of repair is $11.5k, which makes the bike totalled. If you exclude repairs for cosmetic damage, then the cost is lower.
I do not have collision insurance. Both the dealer and I are in a very sticky situation, but we are working together to figure out a solution.
Anyone know what I should do? Have you heard of similar experiences?
Be careful with these demo bikes!
