    Default The Crow Problem.

    AL Salam.
    Here is my little(BIG) problem. I may seem funny to some people but believe me it is not fun what I have to deal with almost everyday. I recently bought a new bike UNIQUE 70.All was well until I started parking it in my office parking. Very first day I found the right back view mirror broken (cracked).I suspected that maybe some other bike wala bhai may have touched with his bike, and ignored it. But the other day I found out the culprit. It was a crow.


    · Now I can live with a crow breaking my mirror, but that is not the only problem created by it.



    · The crow regularly visits the parking lot and for some unknown reasons ignores the other 10/15 bikes and sits on its favorite place, the right mirror on my bike. Why not the left mirror? Well that is a another unsolved mystery.


    · Ok. I am not as selfish as not to share my bike with it and after all it also has Basic Human Crow Rights and can sit anywhere he likes to.


    · I can live with a crow sitting on my bike mirror on regular basis but can not tolerate it SH**TING on the throttle bar every ****ing day.


    · It has its own timing. Will come only about 5/10 minutes before I come to take the bike. Will S**T only 2 minutes before ,so that I can deal with it while it is fresh and in the most disgusting form it can be in. And will not fly until it is in my touching range. Eventually when I shoo it away, it will sit on a nearby wall or car and enjoy the show of me washing the throttle bar.


    Any (serious or not) suggestions to solve the problem and even better, taking revenge will be welcomed.
    Thanks

    I have now hidden my bike among the parked cars and waiting to see if the crow is clever enough to find it. I wish I could see it trying to land on my bike and not finding it there. Also I have parked it using the side stand so that even if its spotted the crow will have a hard time sitting on the mirror and aiming at the throttle

    That is a unique story yaar! Anyway, go for a top cover like the ones used for cars. Check out those shops that sell bike accesories. I've seen plenty of bikes in conjested parking lots covered this way. Since yours is a new bike it'll also provide protection against sunlight etc etc...

Also, crows do not forget the people who hurt them. Yeah i have seen many crow vs human wars. Dont start one If you want to kill it you can hire a assasin to do it but dont do it urself.

    Yes i am serious about my post.
    I took your advice seriously and have dropped the revenge idea.

    That is the funniest story I have ever heard. Props to you.

    As for a solution..Have you tried changing the place of the bike where you ark it? If changing the place does not solve the problem then I suggest you think about investing in an air gun. I am not suggesting the slingshot because it is easier to aim with a gun.
    *Warning..Do good practice before you use the air gun, else you might lose another side mirror The Crow Problem. - bonk

    Another importance question... Are you sure its one and the same crow teasing you? What if the whole crow community has fallen in love with your bike. If that is the case no one here can help you. Time for some The Crow Problem. - boxingThe Crow Problem. - boxingThe Crow Problem. - boxing

    my guess is he like to sit on your bike mirror because other bikes around in parking lot dosent have installed side mirror.

    Example: wake up early in the morning and observe birds and crows from your roof or terris. they always sit on things like roots of trees, 11kv electric wires, thin terris grills e.g birds don't sit things like earth, sofa, car roof e.g I don't know whats the reason behind this but this is my experience and observation. Allah knows the reason behind this.
