Kinda sorta related to my X, visited the pi. He found the batt tender for the X. Quick ride, on a not so nice portion of San Diego freeway! I94 to 125 S, that interchange isn’t mc friendly.

The question is: What did someone else do to your VTX today?

This will definitely NOT buff right out. I was the victim of a hit-n-run today while on my way home. A young lady was behind me in stop-n-go traffic and all of a sudden I'm looking at the sky and the bike is going down. When I got up, she started driving around me and had her window down. She asked me if I was okay but kept on driving and turned down a side street and was gone. The lady behind her took off after her and was able to get a picture of the car & plate, and she came back and waited with me for the police to arrive. The officer ran the plate and it came back negative, so she probably had no license and no insurance.

All I got was a very small scrape on my right knee, but the bike suffered the most damage. She hit me on the right saddlebag, and it has some damage (but may be salvageable due to being fiberglass). When the bike went over on its right, the fairing took the brunt of the fall and it's cracked pretty much completely in half with chunks missing. The rear brake lever is bent but still functions, and the right mirror stem bolt was severed in half. And there is a small scrape on the lip of the front fender. The unicorn pipes (aka Dooleys) and custom rear fender weren't even touched. The fairing is out of production, so that may be a lost cause altogether.

She'll be fixed and ridden again.

Yup. I have a good friend who's a LEO, and he's going to help when he's back to work on Wednesday.

@MR VTX , dude that sucks. It brought back memories. I’m 2&1/2 months post accident. Still sketchy on one particular stretch of road.

Very glad you’re ok. Be well.

UPDATE: The POWER of social media!!!! 👍

I received a message through FB this morning from an “anonymous” person who recognized the car. This person knew where she lived, and the car was there this morning! She has been caught and is on her way to jail! She had an outstanding warrant out of Fort Bend County for drug possession, and the officer smelled it in her car today...so she was probably high yesterday when she hit me. I am pressing charges and will hopefully get her insurance info from the officer this afternoon...hoping she had coverage.
