Somehow it came out just fine....

I was super relieved when I "came to" (I never blacked out, but I did see some stars) to find the bike was still in tact.

What it needs....

the rear swing arm spool tab (it got bent in under the swingarm)
the left rear set (also bent)
rt side frame slider (bent)
Scratches on all plastic parts and tank (no dents or cracks though )
Rt. bar end handle replaced and maybe the clip on.

Overall, my gear did well. Lost the soul on one of my boots (A stars MX-6 boots I think) Scorpion EXO-700 took a nice hit to the pavement and saved my noggin' (I'm retiring that helmet now), Frank Thomas leathers (blew the stitching for the zipper between the jacket and pants), Teknic gauntlets held up awesome...very few scratches.

And the number one thing....I'm gonna learn from this

Glad you're ok Danny! You looked like you were about to black out when you made it to the pits. Not sure how much was due to the wreck or just the heat! Some crazy pics!

MAn, glad you are ok. Those pics are wild. At least you have pics of it to show your kids and grandkids I just have crappy memories. Looks like the bike help up pretty good. Heal up quick. Don't be suprised to see some wild looking bruises show up.

Dude,
that bike looks like it's about to get crunched!

Keep the shiney side up next time man.
Let me know if you need any help wrenching on that thing.
