Take it to Motorcycles Unlimited on 1960/Bammel. Or do it yourself. If you need help getting it there, let me know. I am not far from you on the NW side... be home next weekend


*edit*

Broken collarbone sucks but looks like you did just as good of a number on your bike. My VFR had a bit more damage, but considering the price of fairings and all, I am worried the insurance will total your bike. If they do, see if they work with you and try to only get replaced what you'll need to get done to get her back up and running. You can always get the other parts on eBay or have them 'buffed out'. It could work out cheaper for you in the long run.

Wow! After seeing the bike sounds like the collarbone as the only break was lucky! Guitar Man broke his ankle/foot in 7 places - made are real mess of the bike too. Replacement plastics cost a fortune, so I agree with getting them buffed and repainted. Get better soon so you can get back to riding!

It looks like the bolt that holds the slider in place is bent... from a 20mph fall? They did a pretty crappy job if you ask me!!

Looks like a job for = Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited, the only ones to touch my R1.
Or whatever I happen to be riding. Should trade it for a wing after 7 hrs of endurance riding with mr.clean.
