It sucks they dropped your bike. Some good advice and options above.
One thing on this bike that can bite you on the arse is stalling in a slow turn, rear wheel locks up and can slide sideways, bike will drop if unlucky. It’s possible this is what happened to the bike shop guy, rather than excessive speed.
Recommend check tyre pressures before you get on this bike - should be about 25/28psi. Some dealers overinflate the baby GS. New tyres are also slippery. Keep revs up in corners and/or feather the clutch to avoid a stall.
Other than that it’s a great bike, I’m six months / 4000 km in, (knock on wood) haven’t stalled it since the first week.
Enjoy your bike!
