    Any ideas on how much that panel/cover cost? Is it a commonly replaced piece?

    That panel costs too much to replace.
    Just get the other side scratched up, and move on....

    And then show us pictures after two years!!

    Sorry to see you get your first scratches, that always hurts.
    Scratching it more will be much more fun, from here on out. I promise :clap

    It does give the bike some character ....not as agreeable on her. She is banned to the back for a bit.

    I wonder though, what is the first initial reaction when u see that happen?

    'Oh no! my bike!' or 'Oh no! please let my GF be ok'

    Gf went urgent care to get checked out. They wouldn't touch her and sent her to emergency room. Upon telling nurses at ER about dropping the bike they didn't believe her. Apparently the bruises from head to foot are consistent with domestic violence. They brought in a social worker to get the "truth" from her. So GF whips out ADVrider.com and shows them this thread and finally they believe her. So thanks for the alibi (I mean back up) Advrider. Lmao

    Hilarious! :lol3 ADV delivers again.

    Altough i have to say the bruises on the face seem hard to believe it's from a motorcycle accident with a helmet on.

    May have to plead the 5th again in ref to the helmet. I can't be sure she had it on at that moment. It might have been sitting by her coat while she took a quick spin.

    Her first concern was "glad I wasn't wearing my new helmet it would be ruined". Women.
