Gatlinburg today a macaroon backed into the scoot , slag parking lot ..

Insurance but expired license .. Some deep gouges in the saddlebag and latch , tour pak lid is sprung , couple scratches on the lower and outer fairings , and small wrinkle in the front fender ..

laid the bike over on the right side , he hit the tour pak and put a big dent in the back of his cherokee

I'm curious, where were you parked that he would back into you?

Hate that for you man. Hope you get treated right on the repairs. Were the Cherokee driver's injuries life threatening or primarily treated with new boxers?​

Seems like no matter how far out in the boonies you park, some bonehead caver finds a way to ding up your ride. Hope their insurance takes care of it.

Man I didn't think for a minute you did anything to him, I just know I'd probably mess my pants if I backed into and knocked over someone else's bike.

+1 on no-one being hurt.​

Sorry to hear, but like you said, no one got hurt and the bike can be fixed. Doesn't make it suck any less though.
Just sayin...

Sucks man. Could be an oppurtunity to change/upgrade some things.

IMO if they are truly sorry we can work it out, if they get attitude then all bets are off

That sucks Jack, but glad no one was hurt, good thing you kept your temper, not sure I could've been so kind.

Isn't that the truth. That is why I don't like taking my bike to any sort of retail stores. If I do I make sure to park in an end space with a curb on one side and park in deep and close to the curb.

Of course sometimes it doesn't matter where you park. Asshats will find you. This is how some moron parked when me and chromeyellow67 were out for a ride. Parked in an empty section of a convenience store. Tons of parking spaces all around and this one decides to park right here. Not close enough to hit but too close for comfort. Especially with the fact that there was a ton of parking available all around the store.






I was parked right next to him and you can see all of the space on the other side of me. Looked the same on the other side of him too.





It was like his yellow bike was a magnet for this guy to decide to park right there.

You showed a whole lot more restraint than I would have been able to summon up, Jack. Congrats on that. Hopefully you can still continue your trip, albeit with a few scars.
