Van damaged over night

The team found that our van had been damaged over night, when they picked it up today.

Whilst annoyed, it's not the end of the world and I can patch it up.

However, what we cant work out is how or what might have caused the damage. Ideas welcomed ...

The dotting is very odd, but the height and double thump together after the initial impact, does look like motorbike

Thanks Guys, I knew the combined talents of the forum would come up with the answer.
It's got to be a motorbike that has toppled on its stand or been dropped.
The large dents are just too agressive for a push bike.
I will have a go at the weekend to hammer out the worse of the dents and see if the guys who did the graphics can tidy it up.
PS I may well find a great ground anchor for a RIB in the near future .....
