No, this isn’t a thread about a cage rage incident. The angry man is me. Grrrrrrrrrrr! One of the drivers at work reversed into my baby Hornet. I’d parked it about a foot behind the business’ car on an perpendicular angle. I leave my bike in that spot every time I work and have been doing so for at least a year and a half, and just move it on the rare occasions that one of the drivers need to borrow the car. On this occasion, I didn’t realise that someone was taking the car out. The driver must not have had a very good look at what was behind him, because he reversed straight into it, pushing the bike over its side stand. Luckily for him, the tank, ducktail and left engine cover were already damaged. But the newly damaged items that should really be replaced are: Side stand Clutch lever Right mirror Aftermarket windscreen (Scuffed and has a small crack. Six months old, $160) Possibly the brake pedal, if I can’t bend it back into a good shape My estimate of the repair bill: $260. I’ll check the frame tomorrow to make sure it’s not damaged. The driver’s a good enough man to not try to apportion blame onto me for leaving the bike behind the car. Of course I will do the repair myself, and try to source the parts as cheaply as possible. But what do you think: should I play Mr Nice Guy and cut him a deal because of the position in which I’d parked the bike?
