Dumb things just happen sometimes. Time to tell your story.

Today I went for a ride, weather was perfect in Southern California (sorry for the rest of the country with cold weather). I got off my bike, took off my helmet, went to hang it on the Handel bar, it slipped out of my hand and bounced on my fuel cap. Put a dent in the cap. What the Hell!!! I guess my brand new Wide Glide ain't new no mo. Oh we'll, to the Harley shop, or shop on line for a special cap. As an ex Navy guy, I will look for the Navy seal cap. Got to look on the bright side, life is too short to sweat the small stuff.

Bought my RK used and was so mezmarized by the copper paint and shiny chrome that I failed to notice the giant dent in the top of the front fender.
