Just wondering - my initial thoughts were to take it to a Triumph dealer for repair, but I've seen Motorcycles Unlimited and others mentioned in other threads. Any thoughts from anyone along those lines?
Also, here's the pics except for the shifter, which shows no obvious exterior damage.

Don't look too bad really. The tank does look like it can be smoothed over and repainted. Should cost less than a new one. Screen and muffler are cosmetic and up to you whether to fix. If you file a claim with your ins co, it may be to get everything fixed and pay a single deductible.

That a Neotec? Glad it did the job. I just bought a wineberry color one through WWH. Doesn't look too scuffed up, but you might want to check with Shoei. I know with most of the majors you can send it in to get inspected and they will tell you if it's okay to keep using. I wouldn't bother if the helmet is relatively inexpensive, and just make my own call. But that Neotec ain't cheap.

HoP! He's repaired my tank twice and it was WAY worse than that (both times)! He's a sponsor on here and will give you the best deal.

I cannot begin to tell you what an awesome man Tony Ta is!
