No offence, OP, but wtf did they do to cause that much damage?

I dropped a Honda VFR 400R back in the day, in Cambodia, dropped it at 60 kmh lots of damage, $500 to fix it like new.

Assuming it was parked, htf did they do that much damage?

A big powerfull bike like that will get the owner killed on the open road in Cambodia and probably a few locals as well,just think of all the animals that are loose on the highway and last but not least the idiot moto drivers.

What's your excuse for not having insurance ?

I ride a Honda Forza
yeah seems your bike cost $1500

seems you typed one more 0

and the scooters are strong :-) they built in that way.

and excuse for not having insurance its brand new bike and i didn't have enough time to have insurance after bought it.

also i didn't expect parking lot attendant will knock over my bike.
Well, now you know. Attendants are not at all used to handling 200 kg bikes. It will be knocked over. I hemmed and hawed about a big bike. But I just knew it was going to be a big pain in the ass, both for parking and riding in heavy, chaotic traffic. A powerful, pricy bike is the last thing I'd ever own or ride in SEA.
yeah 100% agreed about chaotic road. but it is not that hard to avoid the accident in this country(no one makes fast turn<left or right>)... and i have been riding big bike for a year in this country without any accident till now.

still having fun :-)

Not sure on what the definition "big bike" is but,

ARLINGTON, Va. — Supersports have the highest death rates and worst overall insurance losses among all types of motorcycles, new analyses by the Institute and Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) reveal. Motorcyclists who ride supersports have driver death rates per 10,000 registered motorcycles nearly 4 times higher than rates for motorcyclists who ride all other types of bikes.

That bike would weigh about 3 times a parking attendant. I would have thought those big bikes would be hard to knock over when parked on the main stand (I don't know what they're called). The kick stand maybe.

The kick stand is on the side with a single foot and leans the bike over to a side and the center stand has 2 feet and stands the bike up straight much more secure.
