Well here it is. Finally got around to snapping some photos of my buddies bike :D . Just thought I would share them with the Thumper World out there and as you know, he needs alot of parts so let us know if you have any spares lying around! I threw a picture of my new Toy Hauler in there also :o ;) This will be the 1st time my pal has seen pix of his bike (it's at my pad) :D :D :) :D :D :) :thumbsup: :p

If I remember right he hit or got hit by a pickup on the road out of Randsburg. He got pretty banged out also.

Swingarm, subframe, silencer, frame, forks, maybe wheels. Wow.
He might consider just parting out and buying another when he's ready. This one may cost more to fix than it's worth.

Hey, I've got a bunch of spares lying around:

Spare WR throttle screw
Spare WR muffler insert
Spare WR muffler baffle
Spare WR AIS system
Spare WR fuel screw
Spare WR airbox snorkle

Let me know if you need any of them... :)

That's too bad about the bike. Hope everything works out for the best with it.

Moto,

It's a '05 with 181 miles on it. He collided with a Ford truck. He fought the truck and the truck won. He plans on rebuilding it - probably around 3k to get r done.

It really didn't look this bad after the crash. I tore the ass end off of it to identify the damage and unbind the bike. But you can see from the subframe how twisted the bike got in the crash. The frame only seems to be bent down where the chain roller is but not sure if someone could fix it right or if would even be the same again. Unfortunately, all the main components took the brunt of the damage. :)
