bike down

woke up this morning went and worked out, walking back to my apartment and I notice something strange. My freakin bike was laying on its side!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I run over to it and it had tipped over on the right side almost hitting the car next to it. Brake lever is bent, side fairing scratched and cracked worse, bar end scraped up, turn signal came out of the fairing, not sure what else because it was kind of dark.

was it windy enough to blow a bike over last night? or did some dumb F%$# mess with my bike to tip it over on its right side!!!

I need a garage!

Was it windy last night? Unfortunetly it was probably some asshole who doesn't respect other people's property.

When I have my bike parked at my place the first thing I do in the morning is look outside to see if it is still there and standing.

If you need to replace your brake lever look here:

I just replaced my brake lever and I saved $35 not to mention I had it in 3 days.

Last night I heard the wind howling pretty badly ... It could've been the wind (tipped on the right side).
