That's sad dude. Most of my mates ride bikes, so I don't have a problem with them moving, swapping or sitting on any of my bikes.....old story, they break it, they buy it.........

Yeah the " You Break You Buy It" does not hold up for long when they are looking at a $ 13,500 pile of twisted junk! I don't know many that would fork over that kind of cash without a fight and court!

yup... one little parking lot spill and you're looking at 800 bucks easy... no thanks.. an old buddy of mine
trusted his bro to move his bike back off the storage unit... 650 bucks later... he felt bad for even asking,
and in the end he just fixed it all himself... if you cant afford a bike, you probably dont have the kind of dough
it takes to maintain one in the 1st place..

Every time I come back to this thread I feel my blood pressure rise. I'd seriously be calling, and bugging the hell out of him for the money he owes me.

wow. yea you honestly never know who your friends are. This kid I have known forever dropped his dirtbike onto my FJ fender and i could have gotten it repaired somewhere for 500 but did paintless and dealt with a little scratch to try and save HIM money and I still never got anything. I told him next time I see him i'm taking whatever he has on him... people suck. I am trusted with others bikes on a regular basis... my buddy even let me pick his 09 R6 from the dealership and told me to ride it around and check it out. I just have morals and people know it so they know that A, im not going to **** it up or B, if i do i pay for it.

Post Sorry its taken me sometime

Sorry for taking so long guys.

Thanks for all the support .

Today that im writing this I have yet to see a dime from this FCUKING monkey. I have a few choices that im left with. 1, I can go into the Police station and press criminal charges on the kid (don't really want to go that route tho, I have morals.) 2, I cant take him to small claims court (SUE him) I feel like this is never ending with this guy., he just keeps saying I have no cash, Im not working - bla bla bla.

The reason I don't want to go to the copshop is because he'll probably get jail - license suspension and all. Before you judge and say you should, hear me out.... I wish no jail to anyone and I carry strong morals I would never wish jail time on someone i know regardless of the situation.

This is just not me.... Still I would like my cash, funny thing is, that even tho I threatened him with pressing charged all he said for himself is that still wouldnt change the outcome as I have no cash now and wont have cash then.

He did try to feed me some shitttttttt about how when he has cash Ill be the first he calls, bla bla bla...

For one, pressing charges or suing him closes the feedback loop for him that, when you fvck someone over, there are serious consequences. Sounds like the loop is open right now. He's done wrong and will have paid nothing in consequences for that action. Close the loop and he just might not repeat this again with someone else's property.

Secondly, there's nothing immoral about pressing charges or suing him. What he's done to you is immoral. Pressing charges against someone that hasn't done anything to you is immoral. Going after him through the legal system is the right thing to do, you've given him more than ample opportunity to rectify the situation.

It doesn't sound like you're going to get any compensation from this guy unless you take some action. You have two options at this point. File a complaint with the local PD and then sue him for compensation, or walk away and forget about it.
