Sorry I forgot to get pictures when i recovered it, but I'll tell you this.

It had a cracked turn signal lens, a small scuff on the windshield, the crashbars and head cover were scatches/dents, possible valve cover crack, scuff on final drive, dented aluminum side panel, cracked fork reflector, scuffs on the front wheel.

Note, this bike started the first time, and drove onto the trailer.
Why would you bother with fixing any of that except for the turn signal (~$50) and the valve cover (buy a used one from Beemer Boneyard). If you're going to ride the pig off road, you're going to scratch and dent it. Fact of life.
