Re: DOH! Finally happened to me!
I kind of like the word "patina"
When I bought the 2014 R1200RT a year ago the finish was great, maybe a little boot scuffing on the bags. Last month in Quebec I was leaving a parking lot, turning right, when I had to stop for traffic. My right boot hit loose gravel and the bike went down on the right side. The covers over the valve covers were unmarked. No real damage to the bag but some new patina (scratches).
I'll decide over the winter whether to repaint the bag. I may also get Illium rear bars.
