Finally, got that out of the way....
« on: August 17, 2012, 06:45:07 pm »
Put it up on the center stand to check clutch fluid level.  Even checked to make sure it was stable.  Turned to get a screw driver and crash, down it came on the left side.

Broken mirror and small crack on front fairing near mirror - not too bad.

Anyone know how to fix the mirror?  Looking for a solution for that now....

Ouch!  Were you on an uneven surface?  Did the centerstand bend or break?  I'd normally recommend eBay for a replacement part, but THIS is the only one there at the moment and it seems a bit pricey.  Of course it's only half the price of a NEW ONE from Ron Ayres.

I'm really glad that neither you nor Connie was seriously hurt, and your incident does qualify you for the CDA Award except for one thing.

You need to be a full COG member.  Don't worry, we don't make you drop it again after you've joined in order to qualify!  Most folks join if they hang around a while and like what we do here, so just drop me a line after that happens and we'll add you to the roster.
