Sorry I missed you in Ventura, but I'm currently stuck in Dallas for a while . . .
Corwin and BMW Ventura are a great local shop and they know how to take care of their customers, even those just passing through.
As for the center stand, BTDT three times now. It's simply a poor design that's weakest right where the welded brace ends. See this thread
for more discussion, and see post #17
for pics of how I fixed it permanently.
BTW, nice job supporting the MS bike ride. It's a good thing that you did there . . .
