Bought My First Bike

I just bought a Suz GS500F with just under 5K miles, but it has scrapes on the right fairing <sp>. Any recommendations on a body shop to repair the damage?

I wouldn't worry about the scrapes, you'll be alot happier when you drop it no matter how fast. you'll be saying ", good thing i didn't paint that" lol

werd! my first bike had some bang up on it and I left it the way it was. My first and only drop was @ 15 mph and scratched the same fairing just a lil bit more. Was glad I didn't repair it.

Thanks for all the replies. I don't want to think that I will lay the bike down, but you are all right about the likelihood of it happening.
