A friend layed his bike over this weekend. I told him I'll help him replace the parts and get him back on the road. Look at the pictures and if you have anything I may need, please message me.
Thanks
Dave

Ouch! I pray he’s OK! I also assume he’s insured!

He survived without a scratch! Had protective gear on. A little sore though...
Bike was not insured. Actually rode it home 1.5 hours after the accident. Says it rode straight.Just cosmetic damage.

Bike is likely totaled...there will be damage that would not be seen til the bike is all apart...theres damage front and back and both sides of the bike...just damaged plastic totals out Gold Wings so easily especially if they are more than a few years old. The only way to save that bike is to do all the work yourself but still going to cost a lot of money replacing everything that is damaged. See the picture below, it my uncles 08 back in 09...it doesn't look all that much, but it was a can of worms once the work started...insurance paid nearly 10K to fix that bike back in 09 and the the bike never went down after the impact.

ya people just look at the plastic damage. For stuff to line back up all the "little " frames get bent and need replaceing or nothing lines up. Think there called " stays" .

Three thoughts:
If he ever wanted to change the color . . . . now would be an excellent "opportunity" to do so.
Nice to know the driver wasn't seriously hurt.
Might as well change the Air Filter . . . as long as access to it has been improved.

Would the rear bags from a 2012 fit ? I'm getting ready to trike mine out and if I call them they will save the saddle bags..
they should be tearing mine down in the next two weeks... And it even looks like the same color. Does he need a final drive or anything else that would come from a bike that's being triked. The only downside is I probably couldn't get the parts in the next few weeks... How soon does he need them ?
