We are experiencing some pretty nasty weather right now. There's rain and strong winds this morning. My son comes in my room and looks out the window and said dad the wind blew your bike over. I jumped up and look and sure enough it's on the ground. I run outside and not only did it fall over but it hit my car on the way down. The right bar end is scuffed, the exhaust is scuffed and the mirrors are swinging around. This morning sucks and screw you mother nature.

It’s one of these days ........
It sucks when you see your motorcycle on the ground.
It happened to me too with a BMWR850RT.
Hopefully you can fix everything so the damage will not be seen anymore.
Good luck

Crap, that must have been some wind.
Very sorry for that to happen, if it happened to me I would be like a bear with a sore head for some time - best left well alone. There would be many bad words muttered, and I would have to get everything fixed up.
Looked at your pics - bar end and stuff can easily be fixed or replaced, not sure about your exhaust though, those scratches look like they would be hard to cover up. You could possibly contact Akrapovic and ask them if there's anything they can do to make it look nice for you?

Bar end will get replaced either OEM or aftermarket. The exhaust is what really got me mad. Gonna try and make it look as best I can.

maybe akrapovic can send you a new part, looks like its a loose part that can be pop nailed back on.
you could also sell the exhaust with the damage en buy a new one maybe. sucks though, this is something
that could happen to me too.

really a bummer since it's piratically new. if the scratches/knicks really get to you, you could sand them down then give the stainless a brushed appearance with some sotchbrite
