Mike, whether you like it or not you get the honour of my first post on here.
Ive been a lurcker for ages, and was saving my first post for my first travel report, (maybe not a wise decision).
Any how your last report "dolomite sprint" was an inspiration, i was also enjoying this one untill, well you know.
Heartfelt commiserations, i just have it in the back of my mind your gonna lose out with the insurance debackle.
The bike will of been worth alot more to you than some insurance companies valuation.
Best of luck,
