It might be trite at this point to say bikes can be fixed or replaced ... this could have ended up very differently ... hope you are all good.
Insurance costs for motorcycles in Australia vary quite a lot and depend on post code and how old you are. As an example my son, 21 years old, went to insure a Suzuki Vstrom 650 and the cheapest quote was $1,900 for comprehensive insurance! The same bike insured under my name, I am 57, cost $290. My Current 2014 GS costs $340 for full comprehensive insurance (new for old).
