Damn punks pushed my bike over

I was at a family wedding on saturday and afterwards I went home to change and to get my bike. I went over to my cousins apt to watch a movie. When it was over I called it a day. While, I was exiting the front door I noticed that I did not see my bike. In stead, I saw this mass of something laying on ground. I was thinking to myself that 'that cann't be my bike', as I got closer I realized that it was. Man was I pissed off. I called my cousins and they came down and help my lift up my bike. On my first inspection that night, I noticed that my left mirror had broken off and a few scratches here and there. I rode the bike home and put it in the garage. In the morning I inspected the bike again and this time I noticed that the front fairing was cracked in several places. On the left side fairing that grommet piece was broken off along with some scratches on it and on the gas tank 'I managed to buff out the scratches on the tank. The covers for the left side turn signals were popped out, I manage to get the cover s back in. Damn it I'm still pissed. I'll post some pics later today of the damage. I need to go kool off.

Damn... I'm sorry to hear that. That has to suck. I still don't understand why people have to mess with other people's shit. Jealousy issue most likely.

Yea, that really sucks. One of my friends lives in the dorms here on campus and had his bike parked out front in the bike parking. Well, it seemed every weekend people would play on the bike or push it over. Finally, one weeked it was pushed over and the assholes tweaked the frame. The bike was totalled. He was so pissed, he went out and bought a car, vowing never to purchase a bike again until he has a garage of his own to lock it up in...

Hi, my name is Matt, and I have a speeding problem

When the bike was on the ground, the tail section and handle bars was barely touching the bumper of the car next to it. There was no way for me to get in there on that side. That's how the top of the gas tank got scratched.

It didn't fall over it was pushed. The tip of the kickstand 'flat part' was bent to a 90 degree angle. I was parked in between 2 cars and there's no marks on the other side of the bike indicating that it was backed into. Oh, not that I'm flaming on u, but let's see you up right a bike from the bottom end

same thing happened to me while at a doctor's office. not to this extent though. mirror, lower cowl, and alternator cover were done but it was an easy - expensive - home fix.
I hate it when people mess with my bike.

That sucks, I'm very selective on where I park my bike for that reason. Some people are just mean.

I had a strange feeling that I should have alarmed my alarm 'with perimeter sensor' when I parked it. What an expensive mistake. You live and learn 'I guess'.

It'd be nice to have a security system to send 20,000 volts into anyone that touches a parked bike, huh? Maybe a 360 degree video cam too...
Where can I pickup one of those?

Yeah, but it's easier to take when you do it to your bike. It's harder to take when some stranger does it. You just feel so violated.

I had my bike stolen out of a locked storage unit in April and I have never felt so violated in my life. I went into my State Farm agent's office last week to pay my insurance and the secretary told me that just th eweek before, another bike was stolen that was insured through them. This makes about 7 bikes stolen in my area (I live in a city of 14,000 people). It realyl sucks when people mess with your stuff.

My boyfriend had a $2000 GSE British Superbike Bayliss replica paintjob on his 748 and had it under the stairwell of his apt. in Atlanta, and apparently, two girls went over by it and one of them tried sitting on it and dropped it trying to get off of it (somebody told him this, but he didn't knwo who it was exactly). It really bummed him out.

It sucks. I feel for ya.
