a co-worker laid my bike over with a golf cart.

IM off AT THE FKing situation. i parked my bike at the mechanical building at work to hide it from the 5 min showers today. so i just left my bike back there with the handle bars unlock just incase they need to move it ( i parked there dozens of times with permission)

so they had to move my bike out of the way to pressure wash some things and they moved it back. well this one co-worker was backing up the golf cart. He rear ended my rear tire threw my bike forward causing the kick stand to come up, resulted into my bike laying down on its left side. the damage was, scratched up mirror, broken left foot peg, left handle bar end scratched up, clutch lever bent out, AND THE GREATEST OF THEM ALL, THE REAR TAIL FAIRING SCRAPED ALL THE WAY TO THE BLACK PLASTIC :BangHead: also that cause the tabs that was screwed down broke off.

im pretty off, but i know he didn't mean to do that so its cool and all im just mad that it happened. he said he'll pay for the peg and mirror, and he's a painter saying he will fix the rear fairing for me. but i think im better off with just buying a whole new one since the tabs broke off.

*sigh* thats my rant.

*cliffs are in the fking title of this thread*

wow that sucks. I'll see if I can get a sticker from work that says "always look before backing!" so you can stick it on the cart.

lol, you gotta admit, that is pretty funny "my bike was layed over by a golf cart!"

At least it didint get hooked up somehow and dragged around the complex. How fun to look out your window and see a familiar big blue spark go traveling down the road. Sounds like something out of caddyshack.

Evil R6's draining pocketbooks. You asked how to wash your bike before, leave it out in the shower next time... (Unless you have a polished aluminum frame and wheels, rear sets, clipons then it's not such a good idea.) I think we had 5 mins of sprinkles around 12:40'ish but nothing that I would call rain.

Ebay the plastic, if you still have the broken tabs keep it with the old plastic as it is still repairable by plastic welding. Afterwards you can then respray and keep or e-gay it off.

That sucks. I second the idea of plastic weld the old one and sell it or keep it as a spare. I didn't think it would work very well but I tried it last weekend and you can't tell it was ever broken.

Don't let him wait to do the repairs. The longer he waits, the less likely it will get done.

man i wish it was that easy. my company insurance policy is horrible.
1 year ago i fire extinguisher came off of its wall mount (3 1/2 ft high) and nailed my toe it was like a 25lb bottle. i went to the er and the hospital give me a bill of $600 which my company said they'll pay for it. well somehow they didn't pay for the rest of the $200 and it went on my credit. Plus its too much of a hassle if the guy said he'll fix it.
