How come life is always bitter sweet? I got a call that i've been waiting for a long time that the police have recovered my bike, but then they told me the bike had been smashed so when i came to pick up the bike today it looked terrible. The police told me that they found the bike at a house whom the guy claimed to have bought it off someone else. So they told me that they are investigating a few people and are laying charges against them. But now i'm stuck with trying to repair the bike with my own money. I asked the police if there is any chance i can get them to pay and was told to send them the repair costs so they can get the bastards to pay, but what if they can't pay? Can i get a lawyer or somthing? I want to make these bastards pay for what they have done. In a worse case scenario that i can't get anything from these people: Should i repair the bike or should i just sell it as a wreck? here is what needed. top of my head. - windscreen - instrument bracket - tacho - front rim - front fairing - two plastic parts that sits on top of the intake pipe - two new tyres - seat fairing - gear shifter is bent - engine shut down switch - two mirrors - indicator - fuel tank is dinted - engine still runs but has abit of smoke when revs. there could be more little bits and pieces also. Any advice?
