Unhappy Absolutely Devastated

A punk in a downtown Edmonton bar made a n-word reference about some wall art in the mensroom. I suggested we ask one of the n-bouncers about their opinion. He shut up - I believed the case was closed.

I leave the establishment to find my 3 week old TBird lying on her side. Limped home steering kinda sideways. $7000 damage

Who would ever tip over a ride? Who?

I cant remember the last time I cried.

That's wrong. Mean people suck.

Any witnesses?

Jeez... sorry for your loss! Ever since I had my ZX10R get blown over by the wind while I was having lunch (probably WON'T ever happen with the 700+ lb 'Bird), I sometimes have "panic" moments wondering if I'm gonna find my bike laying on its side. But, having someone intentionally pushing over your ride... well, it reminds me of the "Pepsi Challenge" scene in Pulp Fiction and the conversation between Vinny Vega (John Travolta) and Lance (Eric Stolz) about Vinny's Malibu getting keyed...

What'd they do...beat it with a sledge hammer after it was down? I've seen people crash and not do $7K in damage.

I'd put an add in the paper describing the location, time, incident, etc. and offer $50 to anyone who could identify the culprit. Then state you intend to seek retribution. It would be worth it just to have the prick looking over his shoulder waiting for someone to come and kick his ass.

Riding for the pure enjoyment of two wheels.
