So ... I definitely can't catch a freaking break.
This past Monday I parked in a motorcycle parking area next to my University's Chemistry building and after I had left to go inside for classes, the began to clean the side of the brick building with a Class 8 Hazard, brick detergent. That was a Level 3 risk. It contained Hydrochloric acid and other corrosive chemicals.
After a lot of legwork I spoke with the University and with the Contractors. The Contractors are now going to be paying for the damages.
Today I filed a Police Report to make sure that it was on record somewhere. Additionally, on monday I took it to a body shop to take pictures of it, so there was another professional witness to what happened to the bike.
Here's the Pictures:
It mostly only got on the right side and the top. I know that any unfinished or powdercoated metal got damaged a bit. And the paint and seats definitely got hit, but don't really look bad now, after I cleaned them. The frameslider definitely got hit and shows some damage. The seats don't look that bad in the pictures because I cleaned them off before I rode.
They were freaking spraying when I was standing there and they claimed it wasn't normally a problem because they "Diluted" it.
Would you just replace the obvious parts or would you lay into them? Especially if you had just detailed your bike before you rode it to class ... and it only had 370 miles on it when this happened.
