Tell you what guys (and gals), I have screwed up from time to time and will likely again. As they say, what goes around comes around. This was an accident and as you said, stuff happens. I had a lady tap the back of my new BMW 540i at a red light. I didn't blow my cork. She felt bad and there was no damage so why press?
You can't compare damage and no damage and still say stuff happens, why press. That's not the way it works. There was significant damage done to this bike and if it had happen to me, I'd demand compensation. You cannot tell me if that Beamer had a nice huge dent, that you'd leave it alone and say, hah, stuff happens. Horse poopy ! I think you wasted motion by typing this up.
