The insurance assessor did call today. We now just had to wait to see whether Arbella would ‘total’ (write-off) the bike (… and, if they did, how much would they give us). Depressingly, ‘Junior’ advised us that the book price for the Tiger was likely to be in the region of $6500!

In the absence of any news from the insurers, there seemed nothing better to do than go window-shopping for another bike for John.
