Hi

I have just purchased a lovely vfr in white but the courier firm dropped it off and smashed the left hand side fairing
I have not managed to ride the bike yet .

Is this model as good as it looks ? I paid £1995 with 26000 miles full history new tyres heated grips and a oil lube fitted .
It will cost me around £800 to £1000 to have a full paint on the second hand parts but it will be mint

Welcome to the forum and sorry these of the disappointment.

Who was the courier so we know not to use them ?

Thanks

I did use Anyvan ! I have to say the customer service team have been good in communications but I failed to purchase extra insurance so I have to claim from the driver so that was new to me .They are helping me to get the money for repairs from the driver .
He put the bike on the center stand !!!!!!! And it fell over when he stopped and only had a builders plank to run the bike into the van .
It would have been nice for the driver to say sorry and not say can you help me get the bike out of the van .

Had good service in past from specialist bike transport company www.collect my bike.co.uk. Fully insured so no option for extra cover and dedicated bike transfer vehicle's with professional ramp fitted.
