The. Damage does not appear extensive enough to warrent insurance involvment. It would only be worth it if uninsured picks it up. This is assuming you have fc ins.

even if it was the wind, how would my liscense plate get bent upward/inward?
.the cover stays tied tight, I'm pretty sure the wind had nothing to do with it.

I say someone failed to see it when they were pulling into the spot. They likely bumped it from the rear and knocked it over.

there's about 3-4 other lwb/ext-cab trucks that always park over here, my bike would be hard to see in the dark when it's covered up between two of them..
....I try not to park so close to the curb so people can see me before they try to pull in there.

Consider putting reflective tape on your cover facing where someone's reverse lights/headlights would be shining on the bike while parking.

If I actually have to park in a spot like that, I try to park far from the curb so people see it.

Like in that picture if someones in a hurry coming from the truck side, they'd be 1/2 way in the spot before they see your bike. Bump your back tire (and/or plate if it's a truck) and move it forward enough for the kickstand to rise. You see the results. I'd also look at getting something reflective sewn on that cover if you're going to keep using it.

I watched this happen to my old bike while I was getting coffee. The tried to just back up and go. He was in an old caprice. I ran up reached in the window, put the column shift in park, grabbed the keys and threw them on top of the Starbucks. Then went inside and called the cops.

Reflective tape may have prevented this. With the cover on there are no visible reflectors.

Whats worse is when you park your and the sun melts the tar under the stand and if falls over. That has happened several times in my lifetime. One of the reasons I welded a pad to my kickstand. LOL but it did not stop the wind from knocking me over at a stop sign a few years ago. I was sitting there and there was pea gravel when the wind hit and my foot slipped out from under me. happens. That is not enough damage for insurance so I suggest you just buy the parts yourself from an online discount suzuki store. That way no one knows its ever been dropped.
