Property damage can be claimed. See a CA lawyer that can give you advise about the direct and collateral consequences of you not having a permit.
That is a different issue than the fact that your property was damaged by the negligence of another.
You say you are “fully insured,” so I would recommend you immediately report the incident to your insurance company. If you have comprehensive insurance coverage, your carrier should pay for the necessary repairs to your vehicle. You should provide your insurance company with the necessary information, including the photos and the witness information so they can attempt to track down the at fault driver and see if they have auto insurance that will cover this loss, and most likely result in a refund of your deductible from your insurance company. The key for coverage is a valid and effective policy of insurance on your motorcycle; however, you should no longer drive on a suspended license and should work towards getting a motorcycle permit before operating your bike again. As for getting the motorcycle repaired, again, if you had a valid policy of insurance, and you have comprehensive coverage for the bike, this will be covered and paid for by your insurance, regardless of whether or not you have a motorcycle license.
