Cement + 955i = no good

Today I was standing out on my balcony and my neighbor pulls up on a new Daytona 955i. I turned to go inside and as I reach the door I hear a crash and some cursing. Curious, I go back to the edge of the balcony and look over. HE DROPPED IT ON THE CURB! I went down later to take a look at it and discovered put a nice chip in the front fairing and dented his exhaust along with a few scrapes here and there. The bike is brand new with like 600 miles on it. Pains me to think about it.

I hate when that $h!t happens. I've had it happen where I got off the bike, walked away from it, then here a loud crash....turn around and my bike is laying on its side.

From what I can tell by the scrapes on the pavement it looks like he had the kickstand halfway on the curb/street and wasnt a secure spot.
