I'm surprised you did that much damage. I dropped my GSA in similar incline but not so rocky on one of my adventure , it was on its side for over 10 minutes until I could rotate, pointed in right direction and gather up enough energy to lift. I must have dropped her 6-7 times at low speed. The major damage was bent shifter ,broken windshield tabs $33, lost a $15 cover and some minor scratches on crash bars on both side. I was concerned a bit because ABS light stayed on for a while.
I was really surprised after I washed her that there was so little damage. I bent shifter back, during adventure and replaced with stock one. I didnt go after market cause I saw how much abuse the stock ones can take. I still carry the bent stock just in case i go in another adventure.
Here's the initial tip over , where i had to grab the front tire, and spin her around. Harder than it looks in picture due to incline and not able to get footing traction. Fortunately I watched alot of youtube videos on GSA offroading , how to maneuver on inclines and pick up heavy GSA on any surface before i set off on my adventure.
Look at the dings on the bottom left pannier, that's from hitting stumps on goat trails at good pace. I now have beautiful nature scrape painting on both side of my panniers. Badge of honor.
