First Ride after the wreck

Finally after several weeks... I went on my first ride since wrecking my bike...

The bike seems fine.. runs true and straight.. so I don't think I have any frame damage.. but I am a bit concerned... the front fairing stay was ripped off and the entire front of the bike(fairings) and it jacked up the tail section.. the subframe is tweaked too...

Not going to have the cash for a while to replace the fairings.. so to replace the front fairing bracket and mount tail light and ride naked a bit.. I need some more seat time...

Thoughts?

i still haven't replaced my fairings after going down hard.... twice. I'm glad i didn't. lol. i just fixed the stay, replaced stuff i really needed and left it ugly. Its less of a target for theft anyway. I'll fix it when i catch up on maintenance and all that... until then....

Did you go with an OEM stay, new or used or one of those ebay replacements?
