Knocked over while parked
While I was at a doctor's appointment today, somebody knocked my bike over in the parking lot. It was in 1st gear with a disc lock on the front.
I'm pretty sure they hit the bike with a car in order to knock it over like that, and there is some superficial damage to the exhaust cover and peg. I didn't spot any obvious more serious damage, but I don't think I'm really qualified to say for sure. Any suggestions on things I should check to make sure there isn't any damage I didn't spot?
As an aside, the business the bike was in front of got the license plate, and the whole thing is on security camera. I will be taking it to the police. I have absolutely zero tolerance for people who damage parked vehicles and don't leave their information.
Every bike is a good bike. The question is whether or not it's the best bike for what you want to do.
