So today i accidentally crashed into a motorbike as i was exiting the roundabout, the motorbike was in my blind spot and i only saw it after i smashed into it.

Short story i agreed with the rider to pay for expenses and damages,i thought i may ask you guys to get an idea about the repair costs.

The damages are as follows:

1. Front indicator broken
2. Back indicator broken
3. Break paddle bent (probably to be replaced)
4. plus i escorted the rider home as his indicators where not working and i relised his bike was shaking, any one may have an idea whats that about?

I would really appreciate it if you guys can give me an ideal cost of parts, and if it is in UK currency that would be Perfect.

Thanks to All

Expensive. Hopefully your insurance is up to date.

It's going to be impossible to guess how much damage was done until it gets into the shop for an estimate.

His bike may have been shaking, because he was probably shaking. But it could be a number of things, hard to tell over the internet.

Just a friendly word of advise for the future (hey, we all make mistakes, we are human) mirrors have blind spots, but with proper head turns, most blind spots go away. Always take that extra second to do a double check. You got lucky today and a rider was allowed to live to ride again, sometimes you don't get that lucky.
