i haven't had any other issues with this bike....other than changing the oil and removing the passenger pegs. :th_down:

but today, i get a bit of gravel thrown up on me and i get 2 big cracks on the front end. one by the mirror and one almost dead center between the headlights.

never thought it woulda been that flimsy. sheesh




she was pretty at one time. :sad010:

Man I worry about that all the time. I can feel your pain. Nice bike though :)

Are those tech spec knee grips I see?

didn't think they were much. but the one that hit my chest, still stings pretty good. even through a jacket. been hit with some big ones before and knew they were big, but didn't do near the damage

Ouch, On the bright side at least that didn't hit your helmet visor.
Maybe your insurance will cover a new upper for you.

doubt he wants to pay his deductible to replace a a couple hundred dollar piece of plastic maybe he can get a sticker from eddie to cover it up...

dang sorry to hear it bro. was it a semi truck or somethin?
The biggest rocks I ever got hit by came from some brand new pilot powers on my friend's R1 when he gunned it on the highway. I stayed in the next lane over everytime he got in front of me after that.

Dayum, that bites! I took a bird in the shoulder once. Startled me pretty good. I'm pretty sure the bird died, but I couldn't find it.

that front cowl is so damn fragile. i had to buy a new one after mine cracked from very little pressure taking the side fairing off. i like my bike alot but the plastics and how they are made/installed pisses me off. sucks man. 200+ for a new one and you have to be careful not to crack that one putting it on. i'm just upset cause it's so damn cold here. if it was 75 i wouldn't have even responded. your bike is sweet though.

That really sucks man, and from rocks. Glad to hear you were wearing a jacket.

Real nice bike, what kind of exhaust is that?
