New ER-6F Owner

Hey guys


I bought an ER-6F recently... and managed to get hit by a car already, ruining the front end.
Hence why I'm here! I'm hoping to get some help as I rebuild the bike.


Cheers in advance

Thanks It was low speed, I was riding in a single lane country side road, with tall hedges on either side so you can't see anything. Turned a bend and there was a car there, taking up the entire lane. We couldn't stop in time. I had full gear though, so I only hurt my hip a bit.


This is what my bike looks like now...

That's strange, the pics are set to public so I'm not sure why. Regardless, I'll try flickr instead.


So this was the bike before I crashed

And after...

So far I've removed all fairings, and bought after market pieces I need online. Hopefully they'll arrive soon and I can get on with the repairs.
