120 mph tank slapper after hitting a brick in the road, the bike landed on me for the long long slide..... the bike got away with it...

3 years later im still getting fixed...............

I had a very slow Hi-Side - no more then 5mph, no, really on a ZX12R

landed heavy on my L/H knee, and did have all my kit on, but pulped my 'tibial plateau' anyway

but nothing like yours

luck to you on your recovery, I was out of work 15 months, insurance money went on household bills, had to sell car, and had house re-possessed, but I am now, 2 years on, starting to work again, short term contracts at pants money TBH, but at least I came through it

you still going to be able to ride again?

I really do think my supersport days are past now, will be looking to sports / tourer rig next

maybe a Harley

or even a Ural outfit

but two wheels FTW

Blimey Rambler. 

 sounds like you come of worse than me,,  being a squaddie i had nearly a year of work with no loss of wages etc, lucky there.... well until i went to Aghan that is , and had to have another knee when i returned...

Wife has banned me from bikes, as she never wants to see me a Coma again, fair point I spose.

ah well we have to listen to wife

until the next one natch

and yes, it would have been a different kettle of fish if I had a 'proper' job, or some nonce in a car had done it to me

all expenses paid then

however, it wasn't to be, I will be back on 2 wheels one day, just not sure when

stay safe
