Wink Sandy took my s1krr. Need advice

I left my baby girl in the garage, got in the car and got the hell out of dodge. My bikes were fine in the garage for Irene but the s1krr did not survive sandy. Garage was completely flooded with her taking in water. I called the insurance company and filed a claim so I don't really know where to go from here. I doubt they can bring her back to life since this was salt water. Where to go next? Should I just get another one? It's a 50/50 track and street bike. I was thinking for the price of another one, I could do a Ducati hypermotard 1100 for the street and an R6 for the track? Here r some pix of baby girl in her glory!

Sorry to hear that man... totally sucks. But that's what insurance is for, so fortunately you got that.

As for those two options... really a personal decision. Neither one is a bad one. I personally enjoy having a dedicated track/race bike... so I like the idea of two bikes if you're gonna continue to ride street too... but in the end it really is a personally choice.

Buy a new one, then try and buy the salvage from the insurance co. Fix up the wreck for the track, or sell off the parts to fund your track bike.

In the same thought, aluminum parts will be mostly unhurt with salt water. Rotors probably look quite nasty but can possibly be salvaged.

Good luck with the claim, you can only look forward at this point.
