What happened? I wrecked mine in Jan 2011. It wasn't anything too major so I didn't bother with the insurance. I really like my gen1 and the wreck made me realize it was time to move some stuff from the I'd like to list to the get it done list. I like the bike even more now that I did the mods. For me, everything I test ride doesn't do that much more to make me consider getting a new bike.
