Sorry to hear, but that seems like a lot of damage for a parking lot drop, as well as the ankle. I suppose the ankle is understandable if you're a thinner person and the stand landing in a really bad spot.
How fast were you going? Wet wheels? You should also know by now if you begin to go "too fast" too soon, to just clutch in and brake.
Heal up, I'm more interested in seeing the split open fracture, lol.

Yea it was bad. It really became a blur when I lost control since I'm fairly new to riding. I probably ended up going 20 mph around. It's hard to tell what happened from what I remember but my friend who saw it said that when the bike went down on its left side my foot was off the foot peg and that's when the kickstand went into it. Afterwards I tried standing up and as I tried I looked down and saw my ankle and was like f@#% this and laid down immediately. It was quite the experience.
i have similar-looking frame sliders and was wondering the same thing... I don't know what kind they are, and I've never taken the top fairing off, don't plan to either.
Maybe I will go and check mine, see if mine are attached to frame or around it.
I didnt even know they made sliders that attached to the frame; Most of them attach like the pictured R&G sliders which are mounted to the strongest mount point using one of the engine support mount bolt locations.
