Repairs have begun

Well, was able to find some replacement parts pretty quickly.  Some have already arrived, some are coming, and some deals still need to be found

I ended up finding a left side rear set for $55 shipped, which also included the shifter and shifter linkage.  I'll be able to sell those for between $30-40, so total cost for repairs I need on the rear set should set me back maybe $15-25.

Also found a perfect condition tank cover for $75 shipped which was another steal.  Mine wasn't damaged that much, but for that price I figured it's worth replacing.

Picked up a new integrated signal tail light identical to the one I had for $65 shipped.  Pulled the tail and installed it this morning.  All working great!

New tire is ordered... same replacement as usual, a Pilot Power 180-55-17.  Got it for $154 shipped.

On to the scuffed up tail section.  Rather then buying a new tail, I put my business to work for me...

 Not a bad solution to the problem, and alot cheaper.  And now we have our company name finally on the bike

As for the left upper fairing... still keeping my eye out on a deal.
