I <3 thoughtful strangers.
Ever have someone do something for you and you thought, "wow, they totally did something for me that I thought I could never do!" Well apparently that person and my bike met today. My 11 year old fairings were looking too new for this decade so a thoughtful stranger decided to help me out and put a nice crack, all the way through mind you-no half ass work for my bike, on the right side in the rear cowl below the rear bolts on the riders seat. Luckily said stranger wasn't here when I got home so I couldn't return the favor. He really missed out. I have a magical Glock 19 that grants wishes if you put your head up to the barrel.
So, I can get a full replacement, new OEM, with matching seat cowl for around $380. Going to trade the silver tail for the black tail just need to make sure that it was the only tail used on the 03's so I don't screw up the order. Any objections? This, ladies and gentlemen is why you get $100 deductible comp.
Pics later after I get done cleaning das motorrad.
