    TW meets an immovable object! LOL. YUP, You must do a very close inspection of the triple trees and the steering head to make sure there is no cracks or bends. With all of that good then what you will need is a new front wheel and a pair of fork tubes. The fender bracket is likely to be tweeked but could be bent back and the fender looks ok from here. After you get the wheel and fork tubes removed be sure to check the steering head bearings to make sure there is no rubbing or hanging when turned side to side.
    I will go better than Brian and give you a new I Phone X in trade for that nice bike and have it repaired for a few hundred. Any wheel and fork tubes from a TW from 2001 up will bolt right up.

    Be Decisive! Right or Wrong just make a decision. ​ The road of life is paved with flat squirrels that couldn't make a decision.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    You got this new bike for an I whatever and you are wondering what to do? Order all new parts, put them on and be happy you got the steal of TW's.
