Hit, Lift and Run

I always park my bike at work on the center stand in a triangle spot at the corner of the building between the front and side parking.

Before lunch I noticed it was on the side stand. I put it back on the center stand and wondered. Was someone messing with me or just trying it out and couldn't put it back on the center stand?

Then when I leave to go home, I see the right mirror pushed back and it hits me what happened. Someone hit my bike, knocked it over, stood it back up and left the scene.

I go into full CSI mode and find a black mark on the left saddlebag where the bike was struck. A gouge in the asphalt where the right mirror base hit. Scratches on the mirror, upper fairing, brake lever, frame slider, foot peg and saddle bag.

On the bright side, there's only cosmetic damage and nothing broken.

Unfortunately no. I checked the neighboring businesses as well.

Not many ordinary folks would have been able to stand it back up.

My wife can pick up any bike, using proper method.


Not my wife, but you get the idea.

That would indicate somebody familiar with motorcycles. I have lifted my bike up twice, but I went with the "I'm such a dumb-ass, and I'm furious with myself" method. Perhaps the perp used the same method....

I'd hang a sign on the wall saying "We have your picture. We WILL find you. Come forward or be arrested." Just to see what happens, you never know.

Sorry about the damage. Like your attitude tho, I'd be furious. Good on you man!!

Hit and fun with substantial damage is a serious crime. A felony in some areas. And you know how $$$$$$$ add up in damage on a bike.
The first thing I would do is notify the local police and my insurance company.
I would put that in the sign too.
I would also park the bike in the same spot with a big sign that says the same thing. "Come forward or be arrested. "

Yep it's no joke - hit and run is very serious even in a parking lot. Hopefully 'work' is somewhere where the public is not parking and it's a regular employee giving you better odds of finding them. Make sure you report it to security and HR too of course. Spread the word of a $50 reward to info too, everyone has enemies everyone has a big mouth
