    Well my C/T can’t be big enough as father in law has managed to reverse into it knocking it off it’s main stand!! Initial inspection shows broken brake lever and smashed knuckle guard plus a lot of scuffs and scratches that I’ll have to live with. Where’s the best place to get replacement bits? Do a stay with Honda parts or is there a better alternative? Thanks

    Why do you have to live with the scufs ans scratches? Those where not your fault.
    For the knuckle busters you can opt one of the Barkbuster series and the levers you have to stay with the OEM or change both. In that case i can recomment the Puig with the hinge to prevent it from happening again.

    What he said! Claim on his insurance, he surely accepts responsibility? I know it's family but that works both ways - he should be looking to do the best for you as well as the other way round. If I damaged something of a family member I would make sure it was back to 100%.

    Well it looks like we are going down the insurance road I was trying to be kind, I like him, but a better look today revealed more damage and more expense!! Hopefully I’ll get it back soon and as good as it was.
