    Gday guys , new member here and name is Rick . I’ve been reading and learning from a lot of posts here for some time and it’s time to introduce myself  .  I bought a 2006 fxsti Efi softail about a week ago , 38500kms , here’s a couple of photos before I was rear ended 3 days ago whilst stationary at the lights  , it’s currently in for repairs ( not major) as it was shunted 3 metres from under me , the car was slowing down but not looking in front , all covered by insurance so hopefully I’ll have it in a month or so in as good if not better condition . These are a few photos of it prior to the crash .

    Damn that sucks mate, good looking bike! Hope it doesn't take too long, I have a bike in for repairs at the moment and was told minimum 8 weeks due to parts availability (or lack thereof).

    I think I got out of it lightly considering she was doing about 25kph . The elbow not too good but at least she was straight onto her insurance admitting liability which I’m grateful for, so I’ve been told parts are taking time to get hold of , could be up to 3-4 months wait .
    I rang HD Nerang and they put me onto a repairer just around the corner so it’s all in limbo .
    Yes Rivo ,, cam boots will be first on the list when it comes back , or may get repairer to check it out while it’s there as they are set up for insurance work . Birtyyy and Krash ,, thanks guys , when I get it back I’m sure it’ll be all good

    Me too imoo6170 , I got a good feeling it may not take too long as most of the replaceables can be sourced locally , but my optimism has been proved wrong in the past . All I’ve been hearing about this repair shop in Nerang is excellent reports , that’s a bonus for a start .
