Frame sliders will save you allot of money, especially in times like this.

Glad your ok, the rest is an easy fix.

Don't feel bad brother, chit happens, sounds like you learned something through it. I know it still hurts to see your ride like that but after awhile you might begin to appreciate your hard learned lessons.

Get it fixed and lets go ride!

hope you start to see the reasoning.
