Expresso, those are some four star photos. They are crisp, clear, and the subject has good lighting. It's the perfect angle too. What is it, sunrise or sunset? What kind of camera are you using?

Sorry to hear about your car. How long for the new bumper and paint?

Why thank you for the comments.
The pics were taken right before I posted. Right around 4PM CST. The camera is a FUJI FinePix S5100. The only gripe people have about this camera(when I searched before I got it) is that it does not have "image-stability(anti-shake)" & a fixed Zoom in video mode(which I do not like but for the price..oh well). I do not mind it at all. That feature is for shody picture takers. I have VERY shaky hands & never use a tri-pod & they come out like this.
I got it from QVC for like $250(after MIR). I absolutely love it.
Here is info on it

As for the new bumper & paint. I have no idea. The Insurance company told me to get quotes. I got one & it was $3700. BUT, remember this is Panama. Genuine parts are about 4X more expensive here. It'll take the bumper atleast 2 months to get here regardless. So in the meantime(after the Insurance approves repairs & I order NEW parts) I am going to fix & use this bumper.

My sympathies for your car.

Was the motorcyclist insured?

Was s/he injured?

Take care and enjoy the ride -- moreso after you get it fixed.
