Exit Mall To Find This

12324 Views 72 Replies 34 Participants Last post by  SnowCrash
Came walking out of the Promenade Mall in Temecula, to find my bike laying on the ground. Needless to say, I picked it up to find this done to it.

Furious due to the fact that the bike is not even one week old yet. No security cameras outside. No one saw anything and the worst part is that now I get to pay out of pocket to get this fixed. There were a bunch of HS kids in the area and I think someone sat on the bike and couldn't support the weight...knocked it over and took off.

Wondering if I should fix it myself or just pay my $150 deductible and have a shop do it.

Opinions are welcome.

The only thing I would be concerned about with filing the claim is that it automatically goes on carfax report. If and when you try to sell it, you'll have to take a hit when it shows up. That 55028G is over $300 alone though. Insurance is definitely the economical way to go. I cracked my 55028C but it's only $74 so no need for insurance. Most people at the mall near me park on the sidewalk right by the alternate general entrances. Those are the doors that don't lead directly into a store and not the main mall entrance. usually they are by bathrooms or food courts and have security cams.
The bike may have been tire tapped by a car. A 0MPH tip over won't cause that type of scratching on the muffler. It looks like it slid some, bar ends too.
