  • Nolan N20 and N21 Visor Helmets

    See this imgur album for pics: https://imgur.com/a/uBHxr   The Nolan N20 was my first scooter helmet, predating even my first scooter. It was comfortable and stylish and it has served me well these past four or so years. Still, it had a few limitations. Even with the lower visor that Nolan offers as an accessory, rain was still ...

    Thanks Pyrah. I think it's fair to say I came out ahead from the crash. I'm very pleased with the Majesty so far, although it's a 2001 model it has only done 5700kms. The increased turning circle takes a bit of getting used to, and I haven't been game to lane filter on it yet, but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon ...

    Well the scooter has been sold as a repairable write-off, a replacement scooter has been secured (2001 Yamaha Majesty 250), and third-party insurance has been purchased. Thanks to everyone for their advice and assistance.

    Thanks Pyrah. I spoke to John at Show & Go and he advised trying Gumtree to see if anyone would buy the scooter for more the nominal salvage value he would be able to offer. Just in the process of setting that up now...

    Seems I misheard on the telephone -- it has been classified as a repairable write-off (and placed on the WOVR). The scooter remains in my possession. The insurance agency accepted my valuation for the scooter at $1900, and also reimbursed the full cost of the helmet I was wearing at the time. I only requested $100 for the latter, but apparently ...

    [quote user="INMA"]Remember to claim for helmet, cloths and anything else damaged in the accident. $1400 sounds about right for the scooter if you get the rego back on top of that money.[/quote] In my counter-offer I have claimed for the helmet also, their offer of $1400 was the for the scooter alone, plus leaving the wreck with me. ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Just a quick update for anyone interested: The insurance agency has admitted liability, and has classified the scooter as a non-repairable write-off (pretty sure it is repairable, but whatever...) so I am now stuck with a useless lump of metal and plastic. They have offered me $1400 compensation and I have countered with my own offer based upon ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Hi guys, I don't have much to update, unfortunately. I visited my GP as planned, no dramas there. Now five days after the accident only my knee remains somewhat sore. I went for my first bicycle ride since the accident this morning and could certainly "feel" my knee, but no functional impairment.  I wasn't wearing proper ...
  • Re: Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Thanks for your replies. If I could afford insurance I wouldn't be riding a 125cc scooter! I made a Vehicle Collision Report at the police station in Adelaide. This consisted of a person at the front desk scribbling details on a blank piece of paper. I don't know if that's the usual procedure or just a Sunday afternoon special, but in ...
  • Scooter Accident -- Advice Appreciated

    Today (EDIT: Yesterday!) I was involved in an an accident with another vehicle. I was travelling north at 60km/h along a four lane road (two lanes each direction). The other vehicle, a four-wheel drive, entered the intersection from the east (i.e. from the far side of the road from my perspective), travelling west to the corresponding ...
