    Snapped a bar end mirror bracket for a street triple, my bike fell over while parked on firm ground. I am careful about this as i have learned, wiggled the bike on the stand before i left and seemed fine, but it was in a 30 mph crosswind with 40-50 mph gusts. An hour later the kickstand had wiggled it's way through the soil, i assume with help from the wind forces, and bike is laying on the ground. Attempted to pick it up but had no luck by myself, got some help and the kickstand pulled up a 5" diameter plug of soil. No other damage to bike and the rubber mounted turn signal straightened out.

    That’s annoying! Thankfully the drop didn’t ding something really expensive.

    Clutch lever has a slight tweak. Can't just buy the $30 bracket that is not left or right side specific, you have to buy the whole $74 mirror assembly. This bracket is common to the street triple, speed triple, thruxton r, speed club, and one of the bobbers, could be more just didn't see them in the showroom. There is also a similar curved bar end bracket. Damage could have been worse, but it took the brunt of it, and kept many parts safe in this slow fall incident.

    That's bad luck....
    As you say it was a slow fall so could have been worse...
