Dead Busa

A couple weeks ago a bud of mine had a drunk driver turn in front of him with no time to avoid.
He suffered a broke jaw, without helmet dead for sure. Bruised ribs as mesh jacket most likely kept them from being broke and a few cuts and scrapes.
Busa as well as the toyota SUV were totaled. He was doing about 50mph


Here is a link to what the bike looks like after it plowed into the side of a 4 runner at about 50mph.

His E-mail addy is if u care to send a kind word.

Considering he smacked a cage at 50, the bike doesn't look that bad.

It'll buff out.....

I went and looked at the bike and it looks much worse in person.
ABout the only thing salvagable would be the rear wheel and swingarm so guessing the rear shock. Bout it.
Didn't look like the engine took a hit but it won't shift outa gear so something wrong there also.
Told him i would buy it for a couple hundred bucks when the insurance company totals it but it aint worth much more even to part it out.
