Freshly graded forest service road covered a rut with soft sand, didn't see it, caught the front and down she went. Long list of parts, was able to pare it down to $600.00 worth. These things don't like to be thrown on the ground.

Do you think bars would have helped?

The GIVI lowers saved me a long walk, but uppers would have only provided additional damage to fix. The side of the bike didn't touch the ground, the luggage racks, engine guard and handle bars provided enough protection, the upper faring (literally just the top of it), upper frame and windshield took the brunt of the impact. The upper frame is made of the softest "steel" imaginable, it wads up real easy, interesting being that upper bars mount to it.

The good news is I got my bike back together, and love the Puig (spelling???) short windscreen. Let's see, $650.00 per crash... don't want to do that more than about once a year.

Right? But those engine cases look awfully exposed sticking out there.
