LA people! Need help! Hit and run on a bike!

My very good friend and room mate had his Honda 599 knocked over last night. He actually heard it and ran out. She bitched at him that it was HIS fault, then left.
The damage is several thousand dollars. I know the 599 isnt anything particularly special but its his only means of transportation and furthermore its his first bike. He is filling out a police report today but knowing how reliable the cops are in this town, please help us find this driver!!

Nice sticker. She must have been looking around trying to find the Naked rider when she ran into his bike.

She shouldn't have ran off.

If that is the car that knocked the bike over in the picture before she drove off then;

The picture looks like the bike was parked on a red curb crowded up against the back of the car, sharing the car's spot, to try and make the bike parked legally. She was probably parked close to the car in front of her and pinned in. That is probably why she claimed it was the motorcycle owner's fault when she knocked the bike over trying to get out going back and forth, back and forth.

She hit the bike and ran off so it's her fault, but IMO there is another lesson here.

Hate to say it but why park in the red then bitch when a bitch knocks your shit over. And since when does a set of bars, clutch lever and mirror cost a couple grand. Scratched tank maybe too. Something smells

I pretty much expect every incident in so cal to be a hit and run.

I was taken out on the 405 freeway few weeks ago.

the driver stopped and helped me pick up the bike. traffic had completely stopped so I told him to wait for me at the next exit. I got on my bike and realized my clutch lever broke at the hinge. it took me a couple minutes to get going. driver was no where to be found.

I would have jumped on the car if the bitch was leaving. IMO parking on the curb is just asking for this to happen

If that is the plate of the car that hit him then giving it to the police and his insurance agency is all that will be needed. If you got a picture of the driver even better.

Pass this information off to the insurance company, they will go after the driver regardless of the police since it will be her insurance that will cover the bike repairs so they dont pay for it out of pocket.

the bike was supposedly not in the red and he parked behind her specifically because there was no parking spots in front of her so she could just pull away.

Im really sorry to hear that man.... I know all too much what thats like. Did you get ANY info on the driver? Personally, the next time I go down, the bike aint movin - I dont care WHERE it is until firetrucks, ambulances, cops and the whole deal shows up.

still unsure if that car is who hit the bike. if it is, just pay a PI to look up the license plate. Pretty easy.

If you think we are going to BOLO for dark Camry, uh, there are about 3 million of them in LA. Unsure what crowdsourcing is supposed to do here.

that actually is the car that hit the bike but we all know how things go down and how the system of police/DMV etc etc operates. More help is better.

I have nothing to add but my sympathy. That's terrible. Hate parking on the street. I always expect to come back out to see my bike lying pitifully on the ground.

Good luck to your friend in getting this resolved favorably.
