Not what you want to hear, but think about your surroundings. You're in a bar and you have an expensive bike parked out front. Avoid confrontation next time. You're not dealing with Mensa candidates. Sorry about the bike though.

You're right Simon. I'm keyboard impaired and meant to hit the "4", not the "7". But yeah... They stomped it pretty good. Requires new front end, handlebars and replacement of scratched parts & pannier

Thanks for your accuracy

Seriously. If you don't have the balls to do something face to face, why bother doing anything at all? How does that guy even look in the mirror?

Sorry to hear about this.

What Haggis said, if it was in front of the bar, good chance they might have a security camera, a big city like Edmonton might have street or traffic cameras, too.

Who would ever tip over a ride? Who?

I cant remember the last time I cried.
All I can add is pick your battles. I know up there in Canada you folks have different laws regarding public speech but here in the states use of the N word is protected speech. Here you don't have a right to not be offended. I'm not condoning racism or racist comments but sometimes you just have to ignore idiots and walk away just feeling sorry for the tools.

Sorry to hear about that, I hope they find out who did it.. Did you have a police report registered? Make sure the police are informed to make sure the insurance goes smoothly, and also just incase as others have pointed out there may be street cameras etc.. Which bar?

Best of luck,

**nvm, late reply**

Good luck getting the bike sorted. With a bit of luck you will cross paths with him again and have a quiet "discussion" regarding property issues and the impact of vandalism on society.
