Welcome Mike!

I must be missing something, or I haven't have enough coffee yet this morn.

In your original post your 'new' bike is a C-14 but the one in the dropped pic is not a C-14?

Nope not missing anything. The new Bike is a GTR/C14 , the bike being horizontally parked is a ST1100

I was asking if the 3rd hurdle was posting a picture of your dropped GTR/C14 and as I havent done that yet I posted the next best thing :)

Dropped bike go here...

The one thing to keep in mind whilst dropping your bike is to protect it all costs.  As it's an ST, I can certainly understand you not wanting to protect it.  I had mine fall over once in the garage (forgot to put the side stand down).  However I protected it with my body, thereby reducing it's damage to minimal in nature.

I have to say the tip over wings on the ST1100 are very effective. In that particualr instance all that happened is the mirror od popped out *easily popped back in) and there was some scuffing to the plastic wing cover

Didn't you also have the protective halo of Canyon Cages hovering on the shelf above you?

whilst I get the whole Canyon cages thing and they're effectiveness they look a bit Jon & Ponch to me.

Has anyone got any experience of either of these (look to be the same thing TBH). Remind me of the tipover wings on the ST and the were effectivee
