a bycicle done this at work, security will examine the CCTV to see if it is a staff member.
Ooh. That looks too deep for a quick polish out.
My sympathies. It's even worse if a colleague (even a distant one) has done this and not owned up.
I always wonder what to do with cyclists - they arn't insured so could get nasty.
Over two panels as well.
I feel for you dude.
Somone deserves a right kicking for that. This is going back to blasted cyclists. There is no reason why they should not be insured and held to account for all their actions.
Sorry dude, will fly the flag at half mast .....
I think we would all be truely pissed off with this <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':angry:'>
I really would get them to pay; assuming you can find the bastard.
In any event, this sort of thing (scrapes and dents) goes on in every supermarket car park with kids being allowed to open car doors (as well as some adults I have seen).
Really pisses me off big time.

Unfortunately, the only way to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen is to leave your car in a garage all day and never take it anywhere <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>
Apparently it's not uncommon for cyclists to be insured these days. That way if they're involved in accidents they're covered for personal injuries (not unreasonable), damage to their own property and of course any 3rd parties. Now all that's needed is to make it a legal requirement, as well as a mandatory inspection of the bike every year by a qualified mechanic, some form of mini-road tax and a bluddy test/licence.
My thoughts are with you Koolvin.
I have a similar scrape on mine caused by the previous owner. I would be interested to know the best way to remove these....I assume the whole panel would require respraying. Unless of course there is someone out there who can do invisible touch-ups.
Let us know if you find anyone who can sort this cheaply Koolvin.
Christ, how did the suspect at large manage to make that much mess from a bloody pushbike??. I hate the things. I ride to London on my motorbike everyday, and they are a total nightmare, a law unto themselvs. Traffic lights mean nothing to them as do other vehicles coming up behind them.
I had great pleasure in knocking someone off the other day. Im not condoning the practise by any means, but i felt a mighty sense of releif when i did it. I was crossing a box junction in Holborn, my light was green. Naturally i went through the light at about 35mph, as i did, a cyclist in full regalia..including the stupid looking crash hat came flying at me from the right hand side. I had to skid to just miss him. taking rather a lot of tread off my new £125 rear tyre...not amused. Naturally i tooted, and he gave me the mandatory w*nker sign and shouted some abuse at me. The chase was on. I get this every day, and i just flipped for some reason. As he carried on up Holborn i came along side him..shouted Oi W*nker,, and proceeded to give a full force kick to his bike...knocking him off. I then sailed off into the sunset...or more like the traffic jam instead. If he hadnt of jumped the red light and then gave me a load of stick he wouldnt have ended up with a smashed bike and a broken arm. As i say, not a clever thing to do, but theres only so much someone can take.
There ive said my bit!! <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>
Deepest sympathy, Koolvin.
That is very bad news - presumably if you know it was a bike, someone saw something to tell you that much.
If so, get them to put their description of exactly what they saw in writing asap, (together with name address contact no etc,) and get them to sign and date it.
It can only help if you ever find the tosser, whether he agrees to pay or has to be sued.
Sorry for your misfortune.
I had 2 door scuffs in the side of my car in the works car park last week, I just knew the wan##r in the golf had parked too close, but didnt check till I got home <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''> the other scuff was only a day or 2 before by someone else at work, dont know who.....
pi55ed me right off, but they both polished out.
I complained to personel, and while they cant do anything, I now have permission to park across 2 spaces (even though the car park gets full), nice ladies in personel <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>
