yesterday i went to the local hang out, when i pulled in i hear, 'tony what happened to your bike?!?'

i got off it, and on the left hand side the upper was scratched and the turn signal was broken off.

it looks like it was from a car hood. it's definitely not from getting knocked over as the cases, levers, bar-ends, tail, pegs, etc are all perfect.

damn it, first scratches are reserved for the owner.

okay, maybe i don't hate everyone, 99 and 44/100% of all people

anyway the damage isn't that bad, it just pisses me off.

Damn Hit & Run drivers!! That sucks man! If you ever find the vehicle that did it, smack off his mirror and smash out a turn signal lens!

Tony, man that sucks big time! Where was your bike parked, I mean, was it in a company parking garage or the like where you can look for a car with scratches that match up? Or a public place where all hope is lost on finding the idiot?

Not that it matters, but how'd you miss seeing the damage when you got on your bike? You get on from the left side, correct? Maybe it was the car still parked next to you that did it. I'm know asking these questions might only make you feel worse, but a previous experience of mine, similar to yours, has taught me to do a quick visual on my vehicles before leaving, especially in parking garages/lots. I was able to nail one mofo for hitting my truck this way.

Believe me, I know exactly how you feel.

the thing that sucks is i know i'll never find out who did it.

my corrado was hit in run in a parking lot at my old job. i looked high and low at every car in that lot for my red paint, not one. it sucks. it's funny, i usually check the turn signals before i go anywhere, but i haven't ridden it since friday and was just happy to hit the road.

it could be worse, it's not that bad. at least they didn't drive over it.

as for breaking off mirrors, no. i'd beat an old lady senseless for it, but mirrors, no.

I've been there man. I had someone hit my bike hard enough to knock it up onto the sidewalk and then took off. The skidmarks measured over six feet, pretty fast for a lot with a 15 mph speed limit. To top it all off the campus security gaurd said that he saw the bike laying on its side, but didn't bother telling me because he thought that I parked it that way. what-ever! He wasn't there much longer after that Oh and one other thing. They could have got it on tape, if they hadn't recorded over it!

Sorry Tony. That sucks. But it could have been worse, they could have been doing 60 MPH. with you on the bike.
