I almost bit it today

took Fiona out for a ride today.  Driving down the road I hear a ridiculously loud CLANK & I felt a quick vibration that was hard enough that I almost lost it. Immediately after I feel something heavy drop on my foot.

Apparently someone kicked up a rock & it nailed me right in the side of the tank.

I wonder what this is going to set me back at the body shop
Looking on the bright side, I guess I'm lucky it wasn't my KNEE!~

Did you eventually get it fixed?

For what it’s worth there is a company advertising in Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Magazine that does paint less dent removal, although I see paint is an issue for you.

Sorry about the image orientation, site doesn’t want to make it vertical.

Hey JG. About the pics.
Try this.
Pull up the pic u want to post on your phone.
Enlarge it so most of the side stuff goes off the screen.
Take a screenshot of the pic.
Post the screenshot off the phone.
It will be right side up.
