I'm sure many here are interested in how well your crash bars protected. If you flipped the bike, as you said damage on both sides, that's quite impact that I don't expect any bars to take, but you say the plastic faired well. What do you think punctured the eng case?
Thanks for all of the kind thoughts. I am doing ok, just some generalized soreness and slight road rash on my right forearm. Hoping to hear from the insurance company this week.
My crash bars are Hepco Becker, I am posting a few more pics to show the damage. The plastic fared pretty well, but the front cowl is broken just below the headlight along with the headlight lens. The headlights still work. I looked online to guesstimate replacement cost and the headlight must be replaced as an entire assembly - $1,107
are you kidding me?!
Still not sure where the oil is leaking from, don't see any obvious punctures or cracks. Bike does not leak while on the centerstand, only when laid over on the sidestand. I was pretty bummed out by the whole thing and didn't feel like crawling around under the bike but maybe I'll throw some talc under there today and see if I can spot it.
Mudslingr - I was wearing an Alpinestars Valparaiso jacket, Cortech Sequoia pants, and Joe Rocket gloves. Really liked that jacket, and it did its job during the crash, I will probably buy another one. The pants are reusable, but scuffed pretty good on the right leg.
Bhart - I have Tusk pannier racks which were not damaged at all, the Nelson - Rigg soft bag on the right side took all of the damage.
Spent yesterday wondering if I should still be riding or not, but I'm past it now. Anxious for the insurance to pay out so I can get rolling again.
