someone tell me it will all be ok
Some shithead backed over my brand new, two month old, less than 2000 miles, SV650 tonight. I was in a dance club, came out and noticed my bike was parked at a different angle. The damage, I think it is less than it would have been. I left it in gear when I parked it, so when they backed into her, the first scratched the pipe, and must have caught the bumper on the rear brake pedal. It was twisted into a lower angle, but not broken. The bike fell over onto the left side, balanced on the kick stand and the rear of the bike. So almost no damage to the front, beside small scratches on the mirror and left brake lever. The back end is the worst of it (I hope) broken left signal. scratched rear fairing, and the toe catch on the kick stand in bent all to hell. I did have the disk lock on the front, but it doesn't look like it moved or damaged anything. But I'm freaking out, I think the forks look out of alignment, feels like the brakes might be catching some where. Just imagining it I'm sure. She rode fine, had her up to 80+ with no difference in the handleing.
So if the forks are fine and a rotor isn't bent, any idea how much the cosmetic damage will cost?
Now because there had to have been alot of witnesses, or hopefully because they are actually a nice person, they did leave a note and phone number. I'll call tomorrow when I'm not seeing red anymore. Hopefully everything will work out. I'm going to have the dealer go over it with a fine tooth comb, and everything is going to be fixed, at the guilty parties expence, one way or another.
I could cry... there wasn't a scratch on her when I left her, and some shit raped my poor baby...
