Sorry to hear about that Bill... I also crashed in T7, back in 2004. I had to replace the tank, tail fairing, side fairing and exhaust.

Hope you feel better man... take a bath in epson salts, it helps the soreness!

the exact reason they need to stop trying to make street bikes so darn light and start focusing on durability.

I talked to bill again this morning and he seemed to be fine. He is talking some Lortab and Miller Light to ease the pain that he is having in his shoulder. He is in a sling right now that holds his arm against his stomach. He says that he needs a bigger sling though cause the velcro is hurting his belly :icon_bigg . So he isnt hurt bad at all. Bill doesnt have that high of a pain limit. A few weeks back he stubbed his toe and complained about it for days and wanted to barrow some of my Lortab. So you know he is going to be about this for months :icon_bigg .

J/k Bill, i'll stop by and see you tomorrow when you get home.

Bill... glad you're not as beat up as the bike. T7 is a super fast turn to go down in... hope you have a speedy recovery!

I "looked" at the bike pretty close & the front end looks pretty good. The frame around steering head showed no signs crinkling or compression. It just snapped clean. The front wheel & rotors looked perfect.
obviously take this with a grain of salt as I didn't take anything apart.

Bill,
T7 is a fast one to go down on, hope you're doing well.
Late model GSXR's, Kawis and Yamahas don't crash real well. The new "extrusion casting" technology is cheap and makes light parts but they break too easily IMO.
