why not to call a regular towing company to tow your bike
oh the horror warning the most wrong pics are about to be seen

this is a ducati . i saw no damage to it so i can only assume it broke down .. it was on the side stand leaning against a tire and tied down loosly .. it was bouncing all over the place .. then on top of that there is a car loaded on the flat bed also .. wow people wow .. do your self a favor and call a motorcycle tow company like thunder mountain motorcycle rescue

( no im not affiliated with them i just use them )

Not a normal tow, that's a totaled bike being hauled off. I remember when the salvage guys would come to pick up an insurance total.. It used to make me sick to see them do more damage than the bike had when we handed it to them!! Big chains through the wheels, levered over on the side stands!! I couldn't watch after the first few I saw. You would think insurance companies would want to recover as much $$ as they can! instead some hamfisted dude with a flat bed wrecker and a squished Subaru come collect?!!

there was no visible damage for a total on a $20k bike you would think there would be substantial damage

I agree with Dave R., looks like a run to Copart or Insurance Auto Auctions; if it was a retail situation, you would run one call at a time (and the bike would be properly tied down). Copart and IAA often choose the lowest bidder to transport rigs to their yards, hence the 'quality' hook up of the bike. Those guys are often in there to hook and book (volume is king to them) and they don't seem to spend a lot of time focusing on damage-free towing (as the majority of their stuff is already damaged in some way).

Devil's advocate: you may not have been able to see the damage - stolen bike, punched ignition, motor trashed?? Sometimes what the adjuster sees is different than what you see (or are willing to live with). OTOH, maybe you should head to Copart and see if you can beat GS1200 to this one before he adds it to his stable.

You need to edit your first post, and apologize to the tow company...

Get all the facts before you attempt to slander and defame someone.

No....

He admits to sharing it on FaceBook...he was clearly bashing the tow company with out knowing all the facts.

I'm not surprised you are questioning me....you do the same thing.
