A car was a full stop, with its emergency blinkers on, on Market Street just above the Castro. My wife stopped behind the car. She looked behind her and saw a motorcycle closing in to fast and the rider went down and was separated from his bike. He slid into the median and the bike slid towards her. She dropped her scoot into gear to move, but was hit before she could release the clutch. The motorcycle slid for quite a distance at quite a speed and bounced off of Lisa's scooter. The problem is it hit her ankle first, because her legs were down and she was at a complete stop.
Our estimate was done by Barry at SF Scooter Center and is for about $900. The bike would also benefit from a tune-up. Being that these bikes are not super valuable and our Bajaj Chetaks are our utilitarian transports, we likely will not have too much work done on the bike.
More to follow when we decide what to do with the bike.
The floor rail mat will cover this spot so to the naked eye people won't even know it ever happened, unless they lift the floor rail mat up or are beneath the bike.
Now all that is left is to sand the areas of paint that surround the bare metal. I will then put a coat of touch up paint on the bare metal to avoid rust in the future.
