Definitely not a good night but you walked away so not too bad either. Walking away is the ONLY important outcome. Bikes can be fixed/replaced, it's much harder with people.

Glad your doing OK. It could of have been worse.


I'm also surprised that the repair only totals 2500$. Some dude bumped my bike and it tipped over with minor damage.

I did the repairs myself, the total for the parts were over 5700$
Right side fairings $262, $271, front fairing $290, crushed coolant pipe $170, front wheel $920, front right turn signal $170 That’s all I have ordered for now.

I do need to order right side cornering light which is $400 and right side rear handle bar. That part might not be worth replacing barely scuffed. Clutch cover is $210 and my bar end and brake lever got scuffed but these last parts I listed barely scuffed so they will be last to be replaced.

My order total came to 2,200+ but I got a 10% discount so my total order after tax was $1,927.88

If you include tires the total obviously goes up but it was time to replace them anyways so I’m not throwing that amount in the mix.
Raddy, not being a butt hole, just asking.... Do you have experience in this area as far checking damages after a crash? My main concern is of course the frame.

Sorry to hear that, but, you walked away and that's all that matters.

Not an expert by any means but I believe I have checked bike more throughly than most. I’ve got a pretty good eye for bent frames.. dirt bike experience. Checking for cracks and stuff too.

Plenty of experience through others expenses but again I’m not a trained professional at it.

Very glad you are ok. Sounds like it was a bit scary but also sounds like you faired well considering. As someone else said, you can order new parts for the bike but not new parts for you :-) .... Everyone on here who has ridden any amount of time has more than likely laid it down at some point.... I know I have.

And thanks for the reminder on the visor ... I do that all the time ... just running to the store, leave it up. Not good... thanks!

Holy shit. With my existing back injury, that would have been enough to put me in a wheel chair for life. Glad dude is ok.

Thanks for posting, but mebbe this should have gone into a new thread as it's not video of the OP's (Raddy47) crash.
