    That sounds about right. We were by there today. I knew it looked familiar. Had a case of the stupidities and let the V-Strom take a nap. Started to push it while sitting and the right side was a little lower than I thought and she went over gently (mostly). Broke the windshield bracket and handguard. The bracket must be made of unobtanium delivery estimates are 2-3 weeks out. Leaving out next Saturday for a beach trip with G-kid #2 so it'll be a couple of weeks b4 she's all back together.
