Looked out of my window this morning to see my bike lying on its side. When I went out I discovered my neighbours scooter was also on it’s side partially under my bike. It looks like his was pushed over first (left to right) then my bike was pushed over after (right to left). He also had a bit of extra damage which couldn’t have been caused by the fall - a hole punched in the plastic adjacent to his ignition switch so it looks as if someone was trying to possibly hotwire it.
My bike has a thick cover over it which seems to have stopped any superficial damage and I think my neighbours scooter seemed to cushion most of the fall. I did a cursory check over and couldn’t see any obvious damage, the tank wasn’t dented, no marks to the paintwork, wing mirrors ok that sort of thing but as dawn was breaking at that stage I decided to look at it more closely when the light is better.
I’m not the most mechanically gifted so is there any other obvious things I should be checking for? I’d be grateful for any pointers.
Meantime I am sat here seething that some lowlife has done this
Well checked it over in daylight and apart from a little scuff on the exhaust I seem to have been extremely lucky. There were no leaks, she started up as normal and rode perfectly well. A couple of tears in the cover was the only real damage - it did it’s job well, not bad for a cheapie I bought from Lidl a couple of years back.
