My falling experience
Hello , Troopers , we did a 1500 Miles round trip these Friday to Sunday starting from Orange County California , ending in Bay area and back, Best three days of my motorcycle riding .
on the Saturday group ride of 20+ bike while we were cutting the canyons following like Ile of man riders , To avoid rear ending a group of my fellow riders , and probably due to my lack of skill and also not having ABS and TC I could not stop the bike before rear ending and I let it fall down on right side , while I jumped from it , may be 3-5 miles speed at that time . as the result , followings are broken.
1- Water reservoir,
2- right side peg , right side brake foot lever.
3-broken front right turn signal
4-jammed Givi engine guard.
5-broken MADSAT wind shield (tallest) from ride side , a genius of motorcycle mechanic was riding in the group and fixed the bike in less than 2o minutes and group did 130 miles to lunch destination , and 600 + miles back to Orange county yesterday , except for hiccups at 2800RPM , which is noticeable since day one I bought the bike no any issues , did put up with all other bikes at any speed except cutting very sharp canyons , probably also due to lack of my skills too.
This bike is Monster .
I have spare factory made turn signal set , I have chinese clone foot pegs. I may need to replace the knuckle protector just for the look.
Give needs to be either replaced on the ride side , or bring it back like half an inch to the side.no deep damages to the GIVI.
damages to the side givi bags and top Suzuki bags are minimum.
wind screen is broken like 2 inches form very lowest right bottom and not too deep scratches on the right side form the lowest part to the middle of top , shallow but visible l, like 1- 2 inches long horizontally. 5-10 lines total. protection is unchanged.
some shallow dings , and not breaks on the right side upper fairing , gives the bike rough look and absolutely I am not removing it.
What your suggestion is for Givi resurrections?
just to bring it laterally one inch.
how can I clean the wind shield from scratches?
is there a way to bring the foot brake pedal a little to the undamaged position> it is like minimally bent medially and a little looks downward.
Bike is absolute a great bike , but any time I drop it at even zero speed in the garage , either a lever of turn light is gone.
Please forgive for fast typing and possible too many errors.
Thank you , Ride safe/Ride long.
