I was backing out of an unevenly paved parking spot a couple years ago. My right leg hit a low spot, and it started to go over. I did my best to save it, but couldn't. The bottom of the right saddle bag got some minor scratches, as did the potato gun exhaust pipe.

The bracket that holds the right footpeg broke too. I ordered a new one off of bikebandit.com for about $150 or so.

I do agree. It is a top heavy bike, but if I was a little better prepared, I could have saved it from falling over.

I also had it roll off the kickstand after I first got it, and had to file an insurance claim. The total parts & labor was over $4k.
