    So I finally got around to taking the 640 apart after this fateful ride

    This thing really starts to look like a dirtbike when you strip it down to the dash!

    Maybe I'll create a thumper verion of the BMW Golem - figure a way to mount a single healight, no faring ...

    ... or not.

    This is supposed to be straight.

    I suppose one could say "well, at least you _________________" ...but, I'll refrain from the obvious.
    I have a few spare cosmetic bits inte... your welcome to them. Other than that, the usual moral support. :thumb :thumb :thumb

    Best of luck getting 'er sorted out,

    oh yeah ... fire away :D

    Actually, it's not that bad considering the impact. I just have to straighten the bracket shown in the photo - the only other items that were damaged were the low-beam lens and the front brake line - everything else is good, just a few aluminum bits to tweak straight.

    I might want to replace the dash plastic that I had to carve away, but that's more of a cosmetic thing I think...

    Glad to hear that it is not as costly as it looks. And..."at least you didn't get hurt" :poser :poser :poser

    I'm sorry, I could not restrain myself any longer.

    I have a slightly scuffed set of black hand guards and a silver front fender if you can use them.

    Depending on the injury, at least I'm less expensive to repair ... :deal

    Thanks for the parts offer - those are two of the items on my bike that are still in great shape :D - I'll keep it in mind in case any other of my 640 riding cronies has need...

    Interesting ride report Inte, you really had some "events".

    Here's my "Golom" MK1 Adventure.
