Dropped motorcycle

Right so I dropped my motorcycle yesterday and have managed to dent the radiator and move it over. Few scratches on the body but nothing bad..... anyone know if I could leave the rad as it is it's not leaking and after riding to work for 22miles this morning it did not overheat or fall off??

Previously I hit a road cone at 150 km/h . Radiator dented not at the point of of impact but behind the radiator when the radiator moved and hit the chassis.

Not leaking for at least 2000 km. Check the unscrewed radiator mounting on top and left of the radiator. In my case both mounting become undone.

I've dropped a bike as well and managed to snap the pedal/pegs right off, so yours doesn't seem to bad so long as nothing is leaking.

If you were able to commute to work and back without any problems then I don't think anything will need to be replaced. You probably should try and bend things back to their regular position however...and do so very carefully.
