Lovely - from two bikes to two wrecks

Looks like I'm just not going to have a good day today. I woke up to a crash this morning and when I checked the garage, the R1 had somehow managed to fall off of its stands onto the SV knocking it into my screen printing press. What a royal mess. Tank damage on both bikes, seat is wrecked on the SV, rear fairing looks to be a mess as well. Who knows what else wrong on the bottom side of both of them. I can't even get them back upright until my father drops by to help me later :(

Looks like house of paint is going to be getting a lot of my business soon. Two tanks at a minimum. Man I can't believe this luck, WHY ME! If I was going to damage one couldn't I at least lay it down on the track or something so I have a story to go along with it?

Let me know if you need help. I might also have a spare tail piece and possibly a tank for the SV. What year and what color?

the other might make a good story, but this is like real life...
it is kind of embarassing to say the damage to my fairing is from when i dropped it putting it on the trailer... no in that one at all.

First generation naked bike - 2001. The top of the tank took a nice dent so I'm going to have to do paint work anyway so it doesn't really matter what color.

I had it up on my lift and best guess is that the lift sank down a little overnight and the ramp that was leaning against the side of it must have come into contact with the R1 and eventually put it off balance. That's all I can figure because I was using ratchets and breaker bars to pull off the wheels without even a hint of instability.

Thanks for the offer of help guys but I think I should have it with my father's help at lunch today. If for some reason I need a few more hands though I'll PM those who offered. Appreciate the gesture!

Just realized that you said AND a tank. Its a red metallic bike but its also a naked bike so there's no front fairings to match. The fender is already black so no worries about matching that.

I know how you feel. My son knocked over my Beemer while he was putting up the mower! Trashed the right hand lower fairing!

BMW wants $460 for a replacement! Yikes!

Yeah, tell me about it. I'm not crying yet but I may be when I get them back upright and can assess the damage. I'll have her back as good as new as soon as I can afford to though - I'll just use this as the push to go ahead and paint it like I've been thinking about.

Bummer. Let me know if you need a replacement seat for the SV. Mine came with 3 driver seats and I really don't need them all.
