Should be covered by liability insurance as property damage. Same as if the motorcycle crashed into a front yard.

But you really need to give more details...for entertainment. Please.

Edit: Nevermind...hadn't watched the video yet.

Also, how do you go about assessing the value of a mirror. If someone cuts you off, it's the same annoyingness if they're in a Pinto or a Mercedes SLS. The mirrors have very different costs. I would hate to borrow someone's car, accidentally cut someone off, and return the car with only one mirror!
I work at a body shop so I can asses the values pretty well. Best thing to do is if you borrow a friends car, use the mirrors to check if there is a motorcycle next to you.

or borrow the pinto instead of the mercedes if you plan on not using the mirrors

Just read something interesting on the ECEA forum, from someone who has the insight and is in a position of knowing
"That would not happen in the BIg Apple, The NYPD would use that footage to find the players and shut them down. We have taken over 800 dirt bikes off the street in the pass year."
When you think about the dirtbike problem in NYC versus Philly and Baltimore I think he is correct. Of course 800 is only a beginning but the more of them they get rid of the better it is for us

Modern power mirrors can be fun. You can pry the mirror out and not hurt anything. But it takes quite a whack to actually knock the assembly off the car.

Tire sidewalls on the other hand offer very little resistance to pointy objects.

Who wants to play hooky with me tomorrow and take a ride up to Stamford?

I need to go get a new passport (lost mine in a flood).

My appt is at 10:30 am

Might be my last ride in the area for a loooooooooong time.

Lunch will be at one of the famous steamed burger places (no really, they're good)

I get to a safe spot on the shoulder and pull over thinking the bastard was gonna stop.... yeah right! He keeps going and yells out the window "Sorry!". I get behind him and memorize his plate (1P97), follow him for a while and then finally calm down and realized how lucky I was not to have gone down. In the end I took off and he got off at 125th.

Be careful out there!!! I'm SOOOO glad I had those shitty cases!!!
oh my god John, I'm so glad you're still here to joke about it. I would bash the fuckers door and window in. A buddy of mine has these flashy gloves with titanium knuckles, I've seen him shatter a side window of a car with them on. maybe you should get a pair of those.....
