Parts for 2009 BMW G650GS...after wacky accident

Hi all -

I had a strange accident sharp of turn from a standstill...wife on the back...trying out a new seat and higher center of gravity. Started to fall over, gave way too much gas, did a short wheelie, didn't stop in time and (gently) ran into a building. We never fell over. It was all very bizarre, and feel like it happened because I just was totally unfamiliar with turning with extra weight and a higher changed everything. Also, I've been riding the bike for a week...of course...that was a problem as well. :-)

No one was hurt, I know the person that owned the building, so they were cool. But, now I need to replace the right trim panel, the front mud guard, and the black plastic part around the headlight.

Seems like new parts are really expensive - and suggestions on gently used parts are where to get less expensive new parts. Thanks...

Thanks. I used to have a couple Mercedes cars, 1983 and '82, and there were some good websites that sold way less expensive parts than from the dealer. Just wondering if for the BWM there were any online places like that....but, I will try ebay. Thanks. :-)
