I am glad we are OK but it just reminds you how little people pay attention. I mean come on, we were wearing a half a dozen square yards of hi-viz green. If they don't look to go in reverse on a public road they sure aren't looking forwards.
Yeah, well don't ask me about my personal experience when we got broadsided by an Allstate carrier about 8 years ago.
. Every insurance company has a hater. But as far as an employer goes, Farmers has been really good. Lots of lifers there, people retire after 40-45 years, it's crazy.
IMO, all insurance carriers are in it for money, the end. And you have to treat them all like money-grubbing bandits.
And I never sold insurance, I worked in IT for about 8 years, I now work as a liason between IT and the service reps when our applications go offline. Ironically, I make more doing this than I did in IT.
But I'd still like to get back to an IT job, the current job stresses the heck out of me.
But back to the OP, seriously, don't settle too quickly. And make sure the bike is restored to pristine condition, don't let them use crap parts.
