What a bummer Brian! :( As others have mentioned, better there than on the paint or body! I looked to see if I had my original spots I replaced but must have sold them on ebay...sorry bro! Holiness is good.....but not on a spot light! ;D See Ya, God Bless!

'Preciate the thought, John, but those are the halogen bulbs not the originals.  What stinks is I just replaced them when I put the HID headlight in last fall so they would match.  Oh well, it's only $$$. ;D

Was cleaning the bike off last night after riding to work.  There was a stretch of resurfacing going on and lots of pebbles all over the road.  I thought I kept a safe enough distance between me and the car in front, but apparently not:

Brian,
I had seen this earlier and thought I'd replied, but evidently I hadn't. This sucks to have this happen, but on the bright/positive side (if there is one) seems your "Guardian Angel" was looking out for you. As you and others have stated, yea it sucks to have this happen, but look at all the other stuff that would have been more expensive and time consuming to repair/replace. Replacing the HID headlight, repairing/repainting any of the painted surfaces would have been way more expensive and time consuming and disappointing to say the least. Sometimes when you put things in perspective you can see the "silver lining" and unfortunately as this is I do see the silver lining.

I would also be willing to say since this happened on 6/15 my guess is that light has been replaced by now, and there is no sign of this dreadful misfortune.

Gary, I'm embarrassed and ashamed to report report to you and all my other OCD brothers that the busted light is still on the bike. :'(  No time last weekend to make it to the dealer for a replacement.  Going this weekend, though! [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]

You are a much stronger then I am. :o If there is any flaw or discrepancy on my bike every time I walk by it my eyes are drawn to it like stink on poop. I would not have been able to go this long w/o somehow making time to get by dealer. However I know it will be top on the priority list to get to dealer this weekend. ;D
