Hi Ojo,
back luck mate - at least you are OK - the bike can be repaired.

Can you still ride her OK to get home?

So the first moment i thought sh#t ... there will be broken a lot ... you would not believe it only got scratches on the add on LED lamps (minor), mirror (i can bear with that) ... then i got broken hand protectors (Honda originals virtually worthless ... i would have changed them anyway) .. no visible scratches on the side panels or elsewhere. It seems the Touratech side panniers took all the weight on it, i actually got a broken frame on them but i could "easy repair" it on the spot with duct tape ...

Looks like the panniers are worth their weight in gold.  :152:

The CT rides on!  :305:

So it was her and the panniers that saved the CT... good girl!

I hope she recovers soon. Enjoy the rest of your holiday  :031:
