Last year a van reversed into my '16 blade. Minor fairing damage and a snapped wing mirror when I dropped it in surprise. No big deal, I though, insurer should sort that quite quickly. After 3 months of insurer screw ups, they informed me it was a Cat B write off. Apparently the forks were bent, and if the forks are bent they assume frame damage. They sold the salvage to me for £900. I had the forks checked, and they were perfectly straight. I've taken it on one track day, with another planned in 3 weeks. I've sent off an application to the DVLA to get it reclassified, having been inspected by another garage, an MOT, and lots of photos and written evidence to support the idea the bike should not have been reclassified. The DVLA have responded stating that my CBR 100 [sic] has been classed as either Cat A or Cat B (I know, that's why I wrote the letter to them) and that I have to take to Authorised Treatment Facility and have it destroyed. I have absolutely no intention of doing this, but does anyone know where I stand if they try and press me on this?
