my 450f burnt to the ground :(

Our home and property was involved in the Feb Bushfires in Victoria, Australia. We lost all our house, property and things but at least everyone is still alive which is the most important thing.
Just thought id post up some pics of my once pride and joy - 05 WR450f. Damn that was a good bike, did everything i wanted it to so well. Setup perfect for me.
Was like this
And now looks like this
This is also my dads 04 WR250f.
Might be time for some new 09's i think. Although my mate had an 05 450f and sold it for a new 07 and still wishes he'd never sold the 05, wroked a treat he rekons.
Just thought id share.

Sorry for your loss on many levels. Hopefully, insurance will compensate you somewhat.

Unfortunately i dont think insurance will back bikes up cos they were registered and therefore need their own seperate insurance.
That 450 looks unregistered to me I can't see a numberplate on it.
Worth a try?

it just gives you an excuse to get an 09.
hope you get up and going, and not let it get you down

I too feel for you. But like others have already said, at least the bikes are replaceable, family/friends aren't.
I wish you the best with the insurance.

A question from a noob who never experienced such a wildfire :
did it come so fast you didn't have enough time to get away safely and take also your most valuable things?

I think that you should try to recycle one usable piece of the old bike, and put it on the new one, for good luck. I don't know if there is anything that you could still use, but take a look.
it would be a good reminder to cherish what you have.
But hey... you're alive and healthy, right? You can always get another bike.
