Oh well it had to happen sooner or later, unfortuantly it happened sooner .
I binned it today curtosy of a car driver who didn't see me or never had the savvy to look properly, basically was going round a big roundabout and instead of turning left like she should have done, she decided to go straight on unfortuatly cutting me up in the process leaving me with to options.
a) stuff her up the ass
b) slide dwon the road, the falco chose b .
Fortunatly nothing else hit me and the bikes still rideable (mostly cosmetic, except for bent bar end and snapped rear brake lever, which works ok on my bike, funily enough).
Luckily I also have a witness so hopefully blame shouldn't be an issue with the insurance companies, but i'll hold my breath on this one, and apart from a grazed right knee I got off pretty well.
Here's some piccies just for interest

Dear oh dear.
Luckily you escaped serious injury yourself, Z. Let's hope the insurance will fully refund the cosmetic surgery.

Glad your ok. I had an accident last October, very simmiler damage. Total of £2500 to fix! Which nice new exhausts will you get? (The originals are £411 each!!!)So you can pick any you want, they will be cheaper. Now you know why insurance costs are like they are. ps.Make sure you get new fairing screws fitted.

Glad to read you're ok, Zhaith, seems to be a game of chance these days, sorry about your bike.

Zhaith glad to hear you're not to badly hurt.
I think I can say snap.. very similar damage in my recent accident at the end of june.. none on the rear due to the falco luggage bracket.
Bar end took the brunt on the accident.. my indicator snapped off... side panel scratches seems to be a bit less than yours.. upper fairing identical. Scapes to the end of brake lever front+rear only.

Z. has carbon Renegades. No worries about repairing them. Or TNT replacement?
