So I'm leaving for basic training in 2 weeks, went to Michigan to see my father. I get back and my baby is DEAD. My brother and his freind apparently took it out his buddy was drivin, anyways they got cut off by some s10 and the guy took off. I didn't have insurance (leaving for 9 months) SO now I need my baby fixed for when I'm done with training. it's a triumph speed triple 06...if anyone like to work on bikes or something it'd be cool if you can asses what needs to be done for me and when I get my bonus after I complete basic I can get some money to you to get the job done. I took it into the shop but they say it's a 5900 dollar fix. I havn't seen it yet but from what I'm told there's a bent frame, handle bars, missing pegs cosmetic junk.. but the real deal here is the engine is prabably done for. I don't know if anything on the bike is any good anymore, but if someone likes to fix bikes, one of yins could look er over and see what needs to be done and repair it while I"m in AIT training in new mexico. Or maybe know a shop that isn't looking for 5900 dollars, Like I say though I don't know the extent of the damage so it may be more than that for all I know...I'm not a great mechanic.

They didn't even file an accident report, but I did for them. I will sue them for the cash no worrys there. the guy is acting like he wants to help me but you know how that is. I'm loading my artilery just in case. have to find someone to take a look at it though, if the motor is gone too, might be cheaper to buy a new bike. I dont know the extent of the damage I'm scared to see her. It's my fault though I should have taken Lucielle's key

I'm gonna make a SWAG and say you're bike is toast. The two bolded issues above combime to make it economically unfeasible to repair your ride. That being said, this is the first place I'd have look at the bike if you really want to bring it back from the dead:

http://www.gmdcomputrack.com/services.htm

I believe their closest location is in SoCal, but give them a call and verify this.

What shop gave you the $5900 estimate? Was it itemized so you could determine what was specifically wrong with the engine?

FWIW, the only shop I'd take my bike to for this type of work is Racer's Edge. There are just too many variables here to take your ride to a lesser shop.

Personally, I'd part the bike out and buy another S3 with your bonus money. This has gotta be an expensive lesson learned. Good luck with the bike and AIT.

Well, the shop is saying all that damage, but my brother is telling me that the bike started back up then spit oil out of "the radiator" then stalled out...So I guess the internals can't be too bad or it would have been sezied up...It's a dealership Pat Clarke motorsports. Maybe they think insurance company is taking the bill

And I left my key because my mother needed transportation while my step-dad was gone. I didn't think she'd hand the key to someone I don't know...I'm pissed at everyone.

"Spit oil out of the radiator"? Did your brother at least put down his bong before lending out your bike?

Drain the oil and see if it's still oil, or looks like milk.

Yes I will be getting it today, also on more information, the lady at the shop said the frame isn't bent, but the oil cooling system that runs thru the frame is damaged...If anyone lives over by me and could take a look at it and try to asses things with me that'd be great.
