Mirror, Mirror, on the floor...

I was driving back from the airport the other day, doing about 45, maybe 50, on the perimeter road. When, suddenly, the left side mirror cowling leans out slightly and then spangs off down the road.

I went back and picked it up, thinking "isn't it held on by something?"

Oh, yeah... There's a tether and the indicator wiring. Only, the tether has sheared and the wiring has stripped out of the back of the connector. The cowling is scuffed and scratched every which way you can imagine. :-(

I'm taking the bike for a service this week so I'll see if this is covered by the warranty. Well, I can ask...
