Woo Hoo! Now I can get that fairing damage fixed w/o paying for it! Haha, seriously though I went into cardiac arrest when I saw it happen. An off duty taxi driver was reversing out of a car space while I was beside my bike and then stopped, giving me just enough space to move. I had my doubts as to whether or not he knew the bike was there being a 4WD, but figured I was right there if anything was to happen and I hedged against the guy having seen me. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt and figured he was going to then move forward - instead, as I walked onto the kerb to talk to a mate he just slaps it back into reverse and ploughs straight over it. Damage is minor. Broken blinker, scraped side mirror (maybe bent), damaged fairings, scraped exhaust, broken rear break pedal. End verdict: Thank God I was there. Is there anything we can do to protect our bikes against this sort of activity? My gripe is that I can't always be standing around my bike!
