Piece of advice

So I had drill this weekend, and decided that 35f weather was too cold to ride the bike. So I left it parked outside covered in my apartment complex. Usually I park it in a friends garage if I am going to be gone for a couple of days.....Anyways Mother nature decided to present 50mph wind gusts while I was gone, and knock the bike over from the center stand to the left side. Good thing I had my thick Nelson Rigg cover and saddlebags otherwise It would have been scratched far worse. So my pristine Gt is now beyond buffing repair,and I am pissed.


The worse part is it sat in the down position for about 10hrs until I got the message from my girlfriend...


So my lesson was:

Always ride it to drill (weather was great btw)

or park it your bike in the garage when you're gonna be gone


Pictures will be posted....Soon

Least it fell on the cheaper side.

Right side may add an extra $1600 for a muffler, more expensive fairing (glovebox addition), and cut or seal off the hydraulic clutch line too. Been over that side twice now.
