Hey y’all. Need some advice. Ive been riding scooters in my city for years and this isn’t the first time someone’s backed into and tipped it over- but this time the damage makes riding pretty unsafe. I walked outside after an appointment and noticed my Zuma was on its kickstand, not center stand- a sure sign someone’s picked it back up after knocking it over. I’m not a hobby mechanic by any means (some day) so I need to take it to the shop. I’m gonna need new handlebars- they’re completely bent, a new brake lever and a new mirror, plus some other stuff. I’ve only ever had scooters as far as vehicles go, and I’ve never had to actually use my insurance- is there a way my insurance would cover this? Have any of you gotten your insurance to cover a hit-and-run like this? There were no cameras at the scene unfortunately, I checked. No witnesses. Thanks in advance.
