Hope to see you at SB in some capacity.

Holy crap Doug! That's some serious carnage on the bike.

One other thing to check is that one of the wires for the ignition circuit may be pinched through and grounding to the frame. I've had that happen after cartwheeling a bike down a hill after a failed climb.
