stopped to get gas yesterday morning, went in to use the facilities and came out to find my bike on its side. :(

it fell to the kick stand side with the tank landing on a pipe. The gas station has no camera's so im just SOL. Im guessing someone sat on it and forgot to put the kickstand down. I believe big in karma so hope they get theirs. I was out in the middle of no where so its not like a kid walked by and did it. It had to be an adult driving a car.

Also another failed attempt to override the speed limiter. That project is going to get put on the back burner while I finish up some other things.

here is a pic of my tank that now needs replacing

You know....I just HATE people like that! Take responsibilities for your actions! What the hell is wrong with people? I hope you're right and the karma bites him/her in the butt really hard.

In Texas that is justified homicide. I think that I would totally loose my mind if I walked out of a market and someone was sitting on my bike. I would smile, help them off the bike, and give them a complete beat down.

Go over to the bridge to Captiva, throw a line in, catch a big snook, and try to put it out of your mind.

yea I have used them before and they did an amazing job.

problem is the big scratch. Im not big on trying to match factory paint. Every time I have paid someone to paint a motorcycle part, I always wished I just bought the factory one.

I have hooked three tarpons in Tarpon Bay and never got one in the boat. I came close to cutting the tip of my finger off from a backlash on my Ambassador reel, when one turned and took off. My father cut the line and I flew out of the boat. We didn't start laughing until I had the tip sewn back on by the drunk doctor in Sanibel.
