Heavy Wind

So, I worked graveyards last night and apparently there were very heavy winds at my house. I got home this morning at about 6:45 and immediately saw my bike on its side in the driveway . Apparently the wind pushed it over against the kickstand. It looks like I got a small dent in the gas tank and one of the mirrors got a little messed up.

, that sucks. I'd bet that someone kicked it over because those would have to be hella strong winds to push it OVER the kick stand.

I figured it was able to do that with a hefty wind because it's a small bike. There are a good amount of kids around though, so maybe one of them did it.
