I Ride: Kawasaki 1400GTR
So did I. I had my first accident with my concours 14 (1400GTR called here in Belgium) on July, 4th, 2013. It can sound 'rare' but it was a very interesting accident: The Volkswagen Golf (GTI or TDI?) stood still on the right side, and I waited while I was in his dead angle. Then I wanted to pass, presuming the car would stay there, but it saw other cars upcoming from the other side and accelerated turning over the street with full trottle. I saw everything happening so I could see how my mirror and bars crashed in his frontdoor (his left side, here that's the drivers side), and my rear bag in his back door. The bike did not move so I finally jumped of it, and let i go alone. My rear left bag has been crushed a little bit, so I need a new one. Same problem as you, I do not find any bags in 2nd hand here. However I would like it now to mix the colours of the bags: I have the 2010 blue model, so a green right bag and eg. a black left bag in extra would show nice and everyone would recoginize me from that moment on? Any suggestions?
I love this bike more than ever since this accident...

When I step backwards, it's because I am preparing to jump.
