Like a big idiot I was pulling up onto the sidewalk in front of my house and somehow lost my footing and dropped my HM. I had the front wheel turned just right and hit the brakes a little abrupt.
Dropped is a little harsh, more like I caught it and slowed it's decent. Damage...one small scratch on the peg and bumped the handguard in the grass. I broke the two small cheezy plastic brackets where the outer screws secure the front plastic handguard onto the side bracket. No biggie, it was easily fixed. I flimsy design for sure, the little brackets molded as part of the front handguard are a thin little box that capture the nut. I did look up buying a new front guard...$232, you gotta be "F'n" Sh*tting me. I can't tell if thats the complete guard minus the turn signal or just the front guard. Either way its a joke. No wonder insurance companies total bikes for the most minor damage.
