Met soveel skade is die kanse seker nog goed dat die versekeraar die fiets afskryf. Met 'n nuwe fiets soos die een, hoeveel verloor die eienaar in so 'n geval. Net nuuskierig
Het BMW insurance nie altyd die fiets vervang as hy in die eerste jaar afgeskryf word?

I doubt that damage shown will write off a R200 000.00 plus bike

Rear sub frame, computer box, rim, well allmost the whole back end of that bike. It would be interesting what the amount of damage will be.

 :laughing4:

I never travel the direct route so the assumption was that he does the same.

Just a scenario none the less  :deal:

Yip it would.

I dont think the sub frame needs replacement from what I can see (most of it can polish out) but knowing BMW they will replace everything.

If I was the owner I'd push the bike over from its centre stand to ensure a write off.

What is significant here, and something everybody seemed to have overlooked, is that this is a "Adventure, all-terrain" machine.

Yet tire shredding on a tar road pulls almost all of it's own electrics through it's own poephol.......

Better not take these babes offroad. ;)

This incident will have nothing to do with either BMW or Michelin

I have seen many bike accidents in my life, and this I am confident is the result of low tyre pressure and high speed



The bike would have warned him of a low tire pressure.  Constantly and irritatingly.   Only a complete idiot would ride at high speed with his pressure warning going crazy.

. If you want to blame anyone blame the rider for not seeing or feeling he has a puncture. In his defense it is a new bike and there had been no time for bonding.




His tire pressure sensors would have warned him of slow inflation.   I doubt he could have missed the flashing triangle on the dash.

You can ride a D/S bike on tar, and on dirt. This is termed "all-terrain". Another misleading marketing term. :imaposer:

This tyre could have gone from the correct pressure to zero in so little time that the rider probably would not have noticed the idiot lights in the battle to control the machine.
So many possible scenarios, glad I do not have to try sort this one out.

Feel free to name other surfaces to ride on, other than the already mentioned tar and dirt.

Well,  I know you well enough to know that you are now just baiting with semantics,
 because you are enough of an off-road rider to know that off-tar does not necessarily equate to off-road.
