Question Don't know, Just happened

First thing first, I don't remember a thing.

Anyway, about 4wks ago, finished work at 10pm, ended up "coming to" the next day in the emergence ward, Apparently I overtook a turning vehicle in a 50kph zone (that's ~ 25mph), why I would do that I do not know, the only justifiable reason would be no obvious indication of the vehicle having the intent to turn, Driver was a young teen on his 'P' plates, others reckon he was acting a bit crazy, cops failed to breathalyse anyone OR check either vehicle for defects.

No verdict from cops, no ability to claim insurance from him (I thought I had insured this bike but its seems I insured my dirt bike instead).

He apparently received a large dent in the rear driver door, And my bike now has some rather significant defects, Check them out in the IMGUR album:

The bike in question is an Early model of the 1976 XT500C Yamaha, The one with the Exhaust that double backs on itself to make a 7-8ft Exhaust:

TL;DR - Crashed my bike, suffered severe amnesia and concussion, forgot everything, Bike is repairable, Gear saved my skin but not my bike or memory. IMGUR album:

EDIT: likely he didn't have insurance either, he hasn't contacted the cops for details in regard to claiming insurance from me.

How sad. Evidently there was not enough evidence one way or the other for the police to make a determination of fault.

Apparently you have recovered OK, and this is the important part.
