Back to the issue. Your dealer screwed you. You're dealer (like mine) should have suggested to you that what you meant to say
was that "you hit a pot hole while riding on asphalt during dusk hours in heavy traffic and could not, at not fault of your own, avoid the pot hole and hit it full on."
BTW it's your fault for not reading your warranty and all the other paperwork.
The F800GS is a street bike that you can ride off road. It is not a dirt bike.
You are right. I guess I should have also mentioned that I am 67 years old with a nerve disease that prevents me from riding like my hair is on fire. Hitting a rock at 10 miles an hour, combined with suspension that doesn't and an inadvertant twist of a very responsive throttle catapulted me into another rock, denting the rim. Operator error IMO and never discussed with the dealer.
