Unhappy Chaissos is down

I just got word that chaissos has been in an accident on the ST. He is hurt but sent me a text telling me the news. I don't know how bad but I believe the bike is bad.
Please keep him in your thoughts, he promised he would post later. I hope I did not step on his toes by posting first.

Chaissos tells me that he is not hurt too badly, he was ATGATT. He is pretty sure the bike is totalled.

I don't have any real details other than he was not at fault.


I am anxiously awaiting details, he says he is OK, and does not need any help at this time. We will see.

I'm home, and I hurt, but I think I'm mostly OK. Any wreck you can walk away from should be considered a good wreck - if there ever really IS such a thing.

I'm going to write it all out, and for the moment, patience, please, until I'm done. I'll post a final post, but I think I need to explain the pictures. Most of them are crappy, as I only had a phone, and since I can't explain crap for the pictures, each will be in its own post.

As the pic shows, I'm OK. Sort of. I've never been, and never will be truly OK, but I'm almost as OK as I was a couple hours ago. I'm typing at all you folks, so I must be OK. Think of Mark, who I was talking to when this happened. I heard sheer panic in his voice as I went down, and he heard the crash. He's in Florida, so all I can do is tell him I'm OK, and send him this pic.

If you look just to the right of the bike, you can see where it ended up. I had the wherewithal to drag it off the road myself. You can see just behind the black car coming towards me the stop sign (just to the right of that guys head). I had just taken off from that stop, so I was probably doing 35-40. I had just shifted into 2nd.

From this angle, you can already see the front is smashed. Wait, it gets better...

This one shows the front of the clutch cover, forced through the bottom of the fairing. You can see the clutch springs, bolts and other hardware scattered around. My jacket is on the bike, the the blinker is gone.

The second shot shows the damage to the idiot's car that pulled in front of me. I'm sure that damage extends into the floorpan. /sigh. Poor guy....

Pisses me off more than anything else.

Damage to the jacket, some of the damage to the front end.
