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.

Sorry to hear that.
The guy sure wasn't very smart to knock the bike over in front of a shop and hoping to get away with it.

My computer is fighting Aids and Cancer in it's idle time, and yours?

Im really sorry to hear that this happened to your bike. What I learned the hard way is I have to be really careful about how close I park my bike to the lines because the car drivers are such idiots. Often times I will park on the sidewalk or some space off to the side, I rarely park in the normal parking stalls.

There are even vandals that will tip over your bike. I am very careful when around drunks because they are the main ones that do that stuff.
