Ai, sterkte! Watse versekering het jy gehad? Ek hoop hulle is nie te vol nonsens nie, maar jy sal nie terugkry wat jy gespandeer het nie. Haal af wat jy kan voor jy die foto's neem - spots, crashbars ens word nie sommer uitbetaal nie :( behalwe as jy dit gespesifiseer het as ekstras. Anders sÍ hulle sommer ook vir jou jy is onderverseker en betaal dan NOG minder uit.

Hope there's nothing untoward that caused this and the insurance sorts it out quick quick.

Sick man, but at least you are insured. If that was me it would just be a total loss. Hope all comes right for you.

That's all I could find online about a GS catching fire, so it's not as if it's a known thing. Crazy shizny.
