my and my x1 had a crash sunday the frame looked ok to start with but on further investigation the point where the forks stop against the frame seems to be dented a little all the welds are still strong and the paint is unmarked around them but the frame where the forks stop againts is bent in a little and the paint seems to be cracked slightly .

i know you guys cant see the damage but do you think the bike will be ok as if i go threw the insurance route they will right her off and i aint doing that to my baby

i would not worry to much if the frame is true and no cracks in or around welds.
