Well I just talked to the dealership yesterday. They said the cost to repair the bike would be $11,000 + So it is totaled. I will talk to the insurance on monday to see what they are going to pay.

Your priority should be to heal up, but...

If your insurance totals it you should buy it from them and part it out. I'm sure you could get serious $$$ out of many of those parts.

Man hope you heal up, but seriously by the looks of the bike i looks like you looped it doing a wheelie, espically how the tail section is all tore up like that. thats what my r6 looked like when i looped it a few years ago and broke my leg!!

So far I haven't heard anything new from the insurance, but I'm back to work and healing up good. Now that I'm off the pain pills I start to think the throttle didn't stick. Maybe when the frontend went crazy I held on tight to the bars and in turn gave it more throttle.I have gone back down the road a few times and I think it all started where a patch of asphalt is worn pretty bad, I hit that in 2nd about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and sh*t hit the fan. Oh well sh*t happens, once I get the insurance figured out I'll be out to find another bike. Maybe one with a steering damper...

damper(ohlins),saved me when i hit a foot-long piece of fencepost some lil bugger threw in front of me.a fencepost??,can you believe that? if my ohlins damper hadnt been on bike i wouldnt have been able to sort of go straight on if you know what i mean.the initial thump as the front whell hit the post (post was lying at 45 degree angle to my front wheel),and the handle bars wobbled a little.but if the damper hadnt been on,i was in for a real bad one imho.
theyre not just handy for tank-slappers mate. also handy if youre pulling into carparks covered in gravel/aggregate/chips etc. before my damper was fitted,i hated going over gravel as front end of my r6 is way too light and couldnt handle the small stones even at slow speed(crawl). after damper fitted I can go on gravel/stoney ground(kinda) and steering is so much secure and doesnt seem to twitch all over the place.
on other hand a lot of professional racers say they like ohlins etc but can(if they have to) ride with out them at all. a lot of it with us amateurs is confidence from having the safety net ie damper.
