Re: Two Drops In One Day....
Sorry to hear about your drops...
I ordered the trim the day after I dropped the bike. 350 miles and I drop it in a parking lot in front of a Starbucks. I was pushing it off the center stand, pushed a little too hard, lost grip of front brake and I was on a slight sideways incline. I made the mistake of trying to keep it from going over and pulled my wrist. I was able to pick it up myself though (using the back-up technique).
10 years ago I dropped my crotch rocket (side stand was not all the way down). Broke the mirror, nasty scratches, bent the shifter and some other parts. I'm impressed how minimal the scratches are on my LT after her fall.
