Sorry to hear. Hope the bike gets well soon. But at least you can
blame the weather. Person I bought my previous ST'03 from is a
helicopter pilot (he does the air-ambulance in Berkshire / Bucks in
UK) was apologetic about some scratching on side fairing when I
bought it: apparently he had taken bike to work and parked on side-
stand too close to landing pad. Along came an emergency and he took
off to see his bike being blown away by the down-draught from the
