No surfing this one for me, rode it until it was too late, then BAM.

I've been riding long enough to have been down a couple times, and know how much it hurts. Riding without full gear, is just stupid, but that is always a personal choice. I'm damned lucky to have walked away, let alone ride 100 or more miles home on the same bike.

The damage you can't see much is that the gas tank has a dent big enough for a big fist, all the body work on the bike save for one side panel, are toast, all the frame/support brackets, possibly the front end (forks and all) may be toast, and I think the front wheel will have to be replaced.
