The bike lowsided and slid into a curb which is what caused all the frontal damage. Its hard to tell from the left side photo but the slider definitely took the brunt of the sliding damage. Doesn't help the curb impact at all obviously but it did what it was supposed to do as well as it could have I reckon.

Garage
If the forks and wheel took that much damage, then likely the head bearings and possibly the head stock took a lot of energy too, which is frame damage that would most likely cause the bike to be totaled. Good luck with this, but in the end I hope you had good insurance so you can cut your losses and just end up with a new and shiny GSX-S rather than all the headaches of trying to get that one back to perfect. Been there done that, don't want to do it ever again.
