Re: Pothole at 70mph
I called Cycle Werks in Barrington (my closest dealer) and was told the mirrors are no longer sold as a package, so Il hafta piece em together.
The good news is I only NEED to replace the cracked glass on the left mirror, which is in stock for $29 so Il get that today.
Interstingly I talked to the service manager and he told me if the tire held and the rim is straight and undented, I should be all good. So I know I can still ride, but I have to LOOK at the damaged mirror housings. I think Il probably just replace em with black ones and save the money, I was never a fan of chrome anyway. It appears Il hafta piece the whole thing together and I can salvage parts from what I have. Heres an interesting thing, the small part of the housing that painted, is $165 each! WOW
As far as putting GS mirrors on, I tried putting mirrors from a r1100r on, but couldnt quite get them on correctly. I guess Il try again.
As always thanks for the input, after this happened all I kept thinking about was looking for GS Adventure, but Ive since calmed down. The LT has been the best bike I have owned so far and fits my needs. Now its just a matter of how much $$ I want to put into a 10 year bike, that may soon not be made any longer.
