Well...this isn't usually what you want to see when pulling into the parking lot. Wind + extra sail area of the cover + suicidal side stand on my fiance's V-Strom = bike dominos.

Fortunately I have the full T-Rex setup on my FZ, so it looks like the only collateral damage was a slightly bent brake lever (even more of a reason to get the shorties now), small scratch on the bar end and a scuff on the T-Rex puck. Her V-Strom also has crash bars, so her bike was fine, too.

There's something to be said for bolt-on protection, otherwise this would have been a $1k fall easy.
