Well thanks for all the well wishes.

As to gear I was wearing BMW Street Guard III coat and pants, boots were BMW Savannahs, gloves were BMW winter (Not sure about model), helmet was a Nolan N104. Gloves are AWOL (EDIT: found gloves in riding pants...I had convinced the EMTs to not cut the jacket and coat ). Helmet was two weeks old and will go to my MSF site at SOCOM.

As to fixing her, I may try to buy back but considering age and mileage, that alone makes the damage significant in the "total" or not conversation. We'll see.

It was running great up to the tire failure. Engine does look intact. But almost every plastic part is broken.

With the bag damage, the sub frame must be torqued too. So just a quick estimate tells me several thousand just in what I can see. Even the rotors are bent.....

I'll get her in to the shop and see for sure.
