Same thing happened to me. An "old" bloke was backing his car out of the angle park along side my bike. He never or couldn't turn his head to see where he was going and his bumper caught my front wheel. He pushed the bike over onto the right side and drove off. No one got his number. My right foot peg was broken, the peg mounting lugs of the plate were broken, the r/h swing arm bobbin bent, causing a slight crack where the bobbin boss welds onto the arm and also bent the brake pedal. I had to ride 50 kms home with my right leg over the rear footpeg. Cost me nearly 300.00 nzd in parts. I welded the lugs back onto the bracket, while the new bracket was coming in from Japan. Haven't fitted the new bracket or welded the swingarm yet. Pain in the butt.
