After work yesterday morning, a colleague informed me that he saw my bike tipped over and lying on its right side. Apparently, it had knocked over the bike next to it as well - a Honda Shadow. I find the left mirror broken off, and a nice big scratch on the tank and plastic fairing cover. Also, there are a few new scratches on the right fairing, and the connector pipe is dented.
Why do people so these things? It wasn't hit by a car, so I am certain that some idiot thought it would be funny to do this. I was almost in tears. I was angry and very sad. I wanted to rip somebody's head off, and yet I was too choked up to do much of anything. I don't think I've ever done anything that mean to deserve this. I am just not that kind of person. Now, I am out $300 for my deductible that I cannot afford, not to mention the total inconvenience of not having any other transportation to go to work and back. What really makes me sad is that now I can't afford to buy good presents for people I care about this Christmas.
I sure hope that someday that guy will realise what an idiotic thing he did, and somebody kicks him so hard in the nuts that his eyeballs bleed.
