I bet on a scooter, sooperbike wouldn't have a topbox, but then you get big idjits too
I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Around 06:45, I doubt it was a GS, it left yellow paint on the bumper
I have told her not to take it out on other bikers

Paint so low down....a full fairing would be the only possibility...?

Could be paint from the fork leg too
Look for a shooting star and see Lynda's trail and remember all the great places you shared with her,she will never forget what she shared with you and will show you that in every starry night .

Not to fall from that kind of impact is lucky!
I agree rider probably didn't have a license, that is why he/she scarpered.

I hold the yellow cap in our company Superbru pool, but no yellow fairings.

Well well well,
I Ride that route everyday, either on the BWS or my Grey GS.
Today I saw a yellow Fong Kong scooter at the Main / Witkoppen lights that looked as if it had recently been in an accident.
The front left panel was badly damaged and was held on by packing tape.

I usually wouldn't think twice, but, because it was yellow AND HAD A TOPBOX and it was on the same road as where the accident happened, I took out my phone and took a few stealth shots of the bike.

The numberplate is missing, but a piece of paper was on the plate holder and FGX 817 EC (Eastern Cape) was written.

The guy looked like a sketchy rider, and it had a top box as well as being yellow on the road.

Hope this helps, too many similarities, but also might be coincidence???!!???
