Was on my way to meet up with friends downtown today to go for a ride, when I passed by an 06/07 GSX-R that had been knocked over in the street parking. In the process of taking pics, I noticed that a note had been left under the seat strap. I put the bike back on its wheels, and took more pics. There was some kind of parking ticket/notice rubber-banded around the throttle grip, too.
As I was getting ready to leave, a VPD patrol car was heading towards me (there WAS a cop when I needed one!), so I flagged him down. I told him the story, and wondered if he could at least call the owner, based on the license plate. He did, but didn't get through, and said that the # and record didn't match up.
So, to the owner, I have pics if you want/need them for insurance etc. I'm also hoping that the bike isn't stolen, was ditched so long it got a ticket, and has now been knocked over/damaged to boot!.
I won't post the plate # here, PM me if you think it's your bike.
My ride fell on its' face, because I got a flat EB on Hwy 1, just before the Agassiz exit. No shops were open, and I couldn't remember the name of any mobile tire repare/replacement services. Can someone point me in their direction? Thanks!
