Dude that totally sucks. :( We all feel for you... but if there is anything positive, it's that you killed it doing what it and you loved.... gotta push the limits now and then. Keep us updated on what you're gonna do.

Ouch!! Sounds bad, Make sure you keep an eye on your frame.... Alot of times you cant even tell its bent but you will see stress cracks and paint chipping in areas and eventually rust. Sometimes you can live with it and other times it just throws the whole balance off. Good Luck and keep us posted.

All I did was bend a rim today and i felt like shit so I am sorry to hear the bad news for you. But remeber this is the life we choose and damaging parts is part of it. So as long as you are okay a little (or a lot) of wrench work and back in the saddle for you.

I hear ya! Rolled my bike on the ice this weekend, Bent the bars, broke the throttle and a fender. Gave me a good excuse to buy some new bars though. :)
Just curious... is it pretty normal for the fenders to shatter like that during a rollover, or was it probably just from it being so cold out?
