My bike was knocked over, while parked, a week ago. She basically rear ended me so she could park (illegally) in motorcycle designated parking. Damage was minor - busted turn signal, broken off footpeg, and broken clutch lever. We're going to just deal with this privately - it'll be faster for me, cheaper for her, and easier for both of us. I got the footpeg welded back together (it was exciting riding without one for several days), and someone I found on a forum had an extra turn signal and clutch lever lying around which he sold me cheap.

Tonight - I replaced the turn signal! Nobody else cares, I know, but this is the first "work" I've done on my bike and it was thrilling to have a chance to be hands on. I had to open the headlight to dis&reconnect the wires, and that was about as big of an adventure as I'm ready to handle right now. ;)

The clutch lever doesn't seem to want to remove, but I'll give that another go with different tools tomorrow.
