^ expensive revenge, should have used the money to install your own camera to catch truckers in the act?
Seriously, what a let down way to end the story. They basically got away with it and you had to pay them. Next time take pics and get a camera like said. Trucks tear up the gravel parking lot next to my work and we pay out all the time to have it repaired. Granted, we never dispute the damage but its obviously coming from our deliveries.
Went over, grabbed the bike and walked it home while they guy yelled. Cops showed up 10 minutes later aggitated as fuck. Attitude changed when they saw my title...
That had to feel good in that moment! Glad you got your bike back.
