It only took 3 days

Today I decided to go for a little adventure on the VEE, I went on some old trails, and rail tracks, even down some washed out logging roads.

Just as I was getting ready to turn and head for home I hit a washout mixed with loose sand. Well you can guess what happened next.

My brand new(3 day old) GIVI crash bars are no longer shinny


Unfortunately I totally forgot to take a pic of the VEE taking a dirt nap, Fortunately I was able to pick her up

The only damage is where my ram mount dug into the plastic, and some small scratches on the rear plastic, and scratchs on the hand guard

No Im going to have to drop it on her right side to match the left:mrgreen:

It came with the bars, it is just a plastic piece that says GIVI on it, it has holes for straps on the top and bottom

Here are some more pics form today

Ha! You put the pics up while I was typing. Very nice.

Is that a logging area you're in?

Interesting. I got mine in December and they didn't come with those pieces.

3 really

What took so long? Mine was on its side within a few hours of ownership! All kidding aside, welcome. Looks like you have a lot of fun riding in a nice place ahead of you.

Sorry you dropped her but looks like you went on a beautiful ride! I like the plastic parts for bags on the GIVI bars, gonna see if they are available separate.
