So... I know glamour shots are the norm, but I thought I'd share the darker but still interesting side of these shenanigans.

Bottomed out. Below is a shot of the suspension closed up from the impact. Check out the proximity of the skid-plate to the ground. And more impressive/sad is the condition of the front tire. I thought lowering the pressure to 29psi would aid traction in the flat sections, and it did, but it couldn't manage the impact of such a heavy bike descending from the sky.
Have you checked the bolts on the rear suspension afterwards. Impressive shots
