After nearly 1 1/2 years from the last right-side knockdown by some ingrate(s) at a motel in the middle of then night, I've managed to do it again myself.
Tight right-hand turn going into a driveway at a gas station in Bishop, CA and I felt that horrible heavy-leaning feeling of "I'm gonna lose it" and I did. Luckily, a Harley guy came by and the two of us got the thing uprighted.
Right side case really scratched deep at the front edge. Right fairing (again) at bottom but it didn't cut into the clutch line this time. Front cowling scratched. Luckily this time, the side case protected that $1500 muffler. I'm guessing $300 for the cover, $600 for the fairing, $300 for the front cowling, and another $150 caliper-mounted MotoLight that saved the front forks and possibly the mirror stalk that folded back (I didn't know they did that!).
Last time Markel raised my rate to $1000 a year as the right-side damage at the motel came to over $4,500.00. Changed to Auto Club and got it down to $400. Deductible is $1000 so I guess I need to eat this one myself (fearing another rate hike) or I'm gonna need to switch to something that costs less to knock over like the Polaris Victory that - supposedly - cannot be knocked over.
Think I need some sort of training wheels or sliders on this thing. This is getting very expensive in more ways than just routine maintenance. BMW needs some sort of bumper guard on this thing like some other bikes. I'm thinking of stopping in on Sierra BMW in Sparks, NV and have them order the parts and send them to me should they have a case cover in stock. My trip isn't over and if this luck continues I don't want to buy another bunch of plastic on the way home.
I had over 100,000 miles on the old RT in 10 years and it never went down. This thing makes a big cosmetic dent in the wallet about every year. Arrgh!
