My wing parked outside my place of business. My associates tell me that it is over on its side! Calm day, no wind and no rain. Bike was ALL the way over, past the crash guards! I could see left mirror folded over and windwings being crushed. Called police for report. In the meantime, people from Buffalo Wild Wings (across from parking lot where I work) come to me and say they saw truck hit bike and take off like banchies! Police are looking at their surveilance tapes now of the parking lot. Hope they catch the prick.

Damage:
Left mirror housing scratched all to heck...
Left Wind Wings broken

Gasoline was leaking, even dripping from mirror housing before bike was picked up. Not sure yet if any damage from gasoline yet.

Hate when this happens!

It's a shame that with all the problems we have in one's life, we have to deal with *******s like that. Someone that would do that and take off is the lowest of low. I hope they get caught and charged with hit and run and anything else they can hang on them.

Had that happen to me last year - luckily it wasn't a hit-n-run. It's not a pretty site. It's amazing how well the bike can handle it though. I'm guessing a 2012 fat saddlebag would be busted but mine wasn't touched. (Have a spare set anyway, but glad I didn't need them.)

OOOOOOOOOO that looks terrible! Looks just like a Walker Mower hit it. Sorry for you having to see that. Looks like you parked it over in the corner where it wouldnt get hurt!!!

Sorry it happened. Sounds like another fine, honest american these days. He probably has no insurance and sells drugs for gas money, just a stand up kind of guy! If he's like the bunch around here, his license is suspended as well. :mad1::cus::mad1::cus::mad1:

bumper1,

sorry to hear this,,,sure is a bummer.
possibly the survelance film may show the truck,,but the chances of getting a firmed up plate number off the ol truck are probably zero to none,,,:(

as stated eariler,,the lugnut(s) in the 'ol pickup truck,,more than likely dont have a nickel's worth of insurance,,anyway and probably don't have two nickels to rub together if you were lucky enough to get a plate number off of the survelance tapes, from the restaraunt if you tried to pursue them.

the main thing is,it sounds like your bike is plenty ridable.and you didnt get scuffed up,,so get out and ride this weekend,,as if nothing happened.

take care,
bc

If people can't run over you in the street they come looking
for you in the parking lots.

The damage you have there can actually be repaired fairly easily using Colorite touch-up pens and some extra-fine Scotchbrite. They also have useful how-to instructions on their web site.

I usually avoid doing paintwork but after scratching my mirror housing for 12,000,000th time I decided to learn. It's not nearly as difficult as I thought.
