Bummer. Are you not going to file an insurance claim? I am glad your gear worked well for you.

Thanks everyone. Yeah it sucks, but it's minor and easily fixed now that I have looked her over real good. It might sound strange, but I am actually glad it happened. Now I can tear into the machine and not freak out. It has happened on anything I have ever bought new. There is a time period where you don't want to mess with anything because it's brand new. Once you get a few scrapes or dings, it's all good. Kind of like when you got a new pair of sneakers as a kid, you don't want to mess them up, so you are really careful. Once you get that first scuff, you don't really worry anymore and can get out there and have fun. Does that make sense?

BryGuy, I am not going to get the insurance involved on this one. I already have some parts that I was going to put on and my deductible is above what this will cost to replace if I do all the work.

Glad you are ok. Its always in the back of my mind when I see gravel patches midway through a corner that this can happen. Touch wood not yet.
You might get away with vinyl wrapping your fairings man. It only costs about $60 and a bit of time. I just wanted a color change but if the plastics arent split then it will be a cinch if you want to keep with the black. Just a thought.

Sorry to hear. there's nothing worse than that sick to the stomach feeling when it all goes wrong. As you say - there's always a silver lining!!
