    Damn, that's a huge loss. Yes, insurance should cover it assuming the idiot had insurance. I would absolutely demand that the insurance company pay replacement cost. Sometimes, they'll try to give you a lower value than what you paid for the bikes to account for their depreciated value. I'd push hard for replacement value, including any upgrades you've done. Hopefully you can get some use out of the parts that didn't get destroyed.

    I hope you saved your receipt for the bike. Even if you didn't, take the busted bike to your LBS and get them to write you up a quote for a replacement bike. Make sure they include any aftermarket parts. Actually, you should get quotes for all of the damaged bikes. Take the quote with a copy of the police report to the insurance company of the person who was at fault in the accident and make a claim. If you were an innocent bystander/passenger, you should not have to pay a dime to get your bike repaired or replaced.

    Unfortunately I see more "I forgot to take my bike off my roofrack" threads than I do saying "I got rear Ended."

    At least with the rear ending it is someone elses stupidity.
