yep, guess the wind tweaked it and the tires expanded at higher speeds.

hahaha, nah, just 90 for a good 45 miles.
Honestly I hope [email protected] is able to get you all fixed up good as new quickly.

You going to repaint the bike along with the new hard bags? Gary told me I should just take mine downtown and have some of the locals give it a custom "tag" paint job. :shock:

If you didnt see it yet, take a look at Gary's post about patching up ABS plastic using lego pieces or whatever... if all else fails you might be able to fix it....

Yeah, melt some black Lego pieces in some Acetone and just pour it in the rub mark. Put a piece of tape on the outside, turn it over and pour the mixture in there. It'll work.
Just touch up the paint for now.
You might want to raise that fender just a touch though if you still can. :lol: Been there, done that. It sucks. The tires will swell but only in the road surface contact points As you can see. Gotta give yourself a 1/2" of clearance at least.
