Finally got my estimate today.  I forwarded it to the claims adjuster and he is supposed to come out tomorrow, get pictures of the bike and finalize the claim.  If he goes with the original estimate (which I'm sure he will because he knows nothing about my bike) it will be JUST ENOUGH money to do the cafe conversion, minus a new gas tank the dual headlight and the speedometer.  BUT, it WILL buy me new rear sets, the cafe seat section I like, a new charging system, new fork springs and seals AND a new center stand so this never happens again.  Keeping my fingers crossed.   :)

Come on Geico!  Big money, no whammies!   ;D

I decided to take off at noon today so I can personally meet with the claims adjuster.  I don't want no funny business.   ;)

I'll be interested in your impressions of Geico as a claimant.  My RE is the only bike I have that is insured with Geico.

Cheers,

I'm curious myself as I've heard several stories of Progressive being the motorcycle anti-Christ.  I hope Geico is not the same.

The look like alloy.
I prefer steel for handlebars. I have seen alloy ones snap off at the jointed zone.

I'm with Ace on this, I think steel would be a lot safer. I can picture one snapping off at a 100 mph.  ERC

Sweet!  I just found some black Emgos for the same price!  PLUS they are here in the states in Florida.  :)

Cool and thanks for the heads up on those guys.  I hadn't heard of them breaking before but that is good to know.
