How the heck does something like this happen?

On the way home today while looking down at my gauges, something just doesn't seem right ... couldn't put a finger on it till I got home ... my FREAKING front fender is missing! How the heck do you lose a front fender? WTF?

That is all.

I've lost a bolt out of one side... maybe it just vibrated loose and fell out. I noticed it when I washed it.

Highly unlikely, plus you have to squeeze the fenfer a bit to get it off the forks.
IMO, someone got it.

No, I just lost one. Nobody wants my fender- it's sparkly.

Yeah it takes a long time for all four screws to vibrate out. You would have heard the fender rattle long before it just came off.

I agree somebody got ya ! Sorry for your Loss. Now you can upgrade. Carbon Fiber Maybe

dude, this happened to me last week. I was pulling my bike out the other day and notice my fender was freaking missing. Only one bolt was left, at first I thought I was robbed, but I don't think someone would have the to do that in broad day. I think all the bolts came loose, but who knows. I ordered another off ebay. SHould be here today. bull--it
