I got the bumper off and it really doesnt look that bad. I hooked a strap around the bumper support and pulled it out with a dodge. The radiator/support is toast, but I think it salvageable!!

Hmm.

Guess my concern would be whether the action of the radiator support collapsing pulled the frame rails (or whatever you cell 'em) inwards as it went.

Apart from that, looks like a cut-n-weld job from a donor car.

I maintain a healthy level of fear with my car. Yes I'm a ***** on the street, but I get to drive it home.

Bang the hood back down, and keep driving.

Did you remove your ABS computer?

Did the air bag go off? That's the sensor right there in the front. Looks like a new rad, ac condenser, bumper support, weld in a new cross beam, bumper, hood, and no doubt some other stuff, you've got yourself a hefty bill adding all that stuff up there.

Something similar happened to my car, and the radiator support pulled on the frame rails and bent them. Toasted the car for insurance, otherwise it sure looked like a bumper cover, hood, radiator, and pull out the radiator support. F'in frame rails.

That's unfortunate, but at least you've had control over the situation (or lack off), it's the worst when it's induced by another party.

The scariest thing....to me....was the fear of getting smacked in the face with the air bag!! As for the ABS ECU, Its still in tact. I was just glad my passenger and I where ok. This crash has just given me more time to ride my new bike.

Trees are much tougher than they look, unfortunately.
That's a sick bike though.
