I am glad that the damage to you is relativley minor.
Look out for delayed whiplash. Were you checked over by a Dr or medical centre?
The dealer should be able to evaluate the frame when they check everything else out. If not, find a bodyshop that specializes in bikes.
You don't say where you are.
Good luck with getting the Lotus driver to pay. I hope you don't have any problems getting his insurance to pay for everything.
You will be surprised how expensive a lever here and there and a fairing are - I expect they will be $500 + by the time they are installed.
I live in League City, TX just south of Houston. The accident happened on the I-45 frontage road in Galveston, as I was making a right turn on 61st street to go to the sea wall. There are two right turn lanes at that intersection, and I was in the 2nd right turn lane (center lane), and there was a semi in the right most lane. We had a green arrow for the right turn, but since I know semi's turn wide, I was hesitant to go. I made eye contact with the semi driver who then came to a complete stop and I figured he was letting me go before he turned. So I went cautiously at first, and I guess the lotus driver was figuring I was going to go faster misjudged my acceleration and hit me from behind. Fortunately there was a semi driver in the lane next to me who witnessed the whole accident. He actually got out of his semi and helped me get my bike back up after the accident. The truck driver left me his contact info, and I got the lotus drivers contact information, insurance, DL# plate #'s etc. So one way or another he'll be hearing from me. BTW the damage to his car looked like it might be fairly expensive as he cracked his front bumper and air dam. The lotus driver was really upset at himself as he claimed to own 4 bikes himself and said he was always careful around motorcycles out of courtesy, so he we really upset that he hit a fellow biker.
So far I'm feeling fine, just a little soreness in my forearms. I'm guess from the force of being hit, and holding the handle bars.
The lotus the front end was low enough he only hit the rear tire, so I'm concerned that he may have done some swing arm damage. So glad it wasn't a monster diesel pickup truck with a deer guard on the front who hit me
On the way home I didn't notice any unusual vibration when driving the bike back home. But I'm not sure something in the back didn't get bent.
I'm not enough of a bike expert to know what to really look for, but I wanted to know something for when I take it to a dealer to make sure they're not overlooking something.
I want the bike back in safe condition. Thanks everyone for your help.
BTW One dose re-evaluate after something like this about whether or not to keep their bikes... Could of been a whole lot worse, I just feel extremely lucky that my first accident was so minor and no one got seriously hurt. Just makes you realize that your gear, your skills, and your wits are the only things you've got to save yourself.
