Thanks CBR, I appreciate it. I know there's always the risk but DANG, I didn't know it would happen so soon. However, I've learned a lot and like you said, I looooooove that bike & every ride just gets more & more fun. I guess I'll have a parts bike too, but also planning to see if it's possible to straighten the frame. (It's really just the right rear seat stay and not much). Then it *could* even be a backup/beater bike if (hopefully not) anything like this ever happened again.
