    His fault? On his own property? Storing a friends bike? If there is one universal truth in the galaxy, it is this; Never, ever. Never ever, to the square root in infinity, touch someone else's motorcycle. More so especially, a custom bike. Unless you have the explicit permission of the owner. Never do it. If the bike was in the way of work being done, either they should have made a phone call to a homeowner, or waited for someone to return home. There is no way he is at fault.

    You can do what ever you are capable of doing. What effect it will have is dubious.
    Cost to shut up and fix damage? $500
    Cost of pissing off your wife? Priceless

    Exactly,, but not just motorcycles, Anything in the way...
    I worked in the service industry for 10 + years and never once while inside of someones home ,garage, yardbarn or shop would I or anyone working under me move anything of any value without the owner present or a phone call to get permission.. not good business.

    They were supposed to come the next day.. never showed up.. until after 5pm rolls around.. I thought they weren't coming at that point. For one thing..

    They weren't present when i left. I was more worried about strangers.

    And blaming the victim? really? I guess you'll tell women they shouldn't dress to be attractive if they got raped or something.

    To confirm what i already knew... the neighbor tells me they came the following day after the drop at 8 a.m..

    And the scratches that i witnessed magically disappeared.. and you can see where they were buffed off as the pollen was still everywhere else that they didnt' buff.

    The bike owner had a bad weekend, someone broke into his truck and stole his work laptop.. and he was thinking about painting his bike anyway so he took it in stride..

    i'm still a little bothered that i suspect they are illegal aliens. If the crew was a little more diverse... then my suspicions wouldn't be aroused.. but since they generally speak half-a**** english..

    I wonder who these guys are and what their criminal histories are. How do i know they've been screened.. What i do know is that they are liars.. Grr..


    As far as the idiot wife comment.. Don't worry about it. If you've got a masters degree and still can't answer 7th grade questions correctly, like which number is larger .34 or .332, or how is water distilled, you might be an idiot too.. and if you use belligerence to settle disagreements.. yes.. I'm quite comfortable referring to her as an idiot.

    Yep, his fault. What proof exists showing anything else. A confession, no. Video, no. You can be mad all you want, the facts have not changed.

    The real point was, if you take on the responsibility of someone else's property, you should treat it with more care than your own.

    You aren't the victim, your buddy is. He trusted you to take care of his stuff and you failed.

    The workers are untrusted, yet you left the motorcycle where they had access to it again? And you think your wife is an idiot?

    My wife was rather adamant about hiring someone reputable vs hiring my life long roofer friends... and the way she was talking, she was only going with someone official, etc...

    So i thought she'd be thorough, she sounded as if she was... and then here come these guys :( smh.
