Lesson learned, put it in first and kill the engine, when on a down hill grade.
The AltRider engine guards did their job & took the fall and now have character.
Ouch ... dropped mine the first week I had it, going about 1/2 mile an hour, couple of very small scratches but nothing to worry about, these engines guards sure are nice and you're right it just adds character ...
