The not-so-goodies
-- This bike was in Mexico for five months. I'm not the best with tall, heavy bikes so she fell over a few times. This is a list of the worst bruises:
-- Cracked but functional left mirror
-- Battery leaked and stained the right cover thingy
-- Yellow paint rub on right tank cover, thanks to falling into a door while parking in a house
-- Right rear blinker rattled out the lens screw, then the lens fell onto the exhaust and melted a bit. Held together with tape at the moment.
-- Radiator developed a small leak, had it patched. 3000 miles issue free.
-- Various other skuffs and scrapes

The drivetrain
-- Front tire: looking good, probably 60% life left
-- Rear tire: maybe 30% left
-- Sprockets: no shark finning or wear noticeable
-- Chain: in good shape
