Lucky bike

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...............

Oh Yeah.. and always wear your  Leathers etc etc,,,,,   this was one of them  "just popping to the shop"  moments

JEEZI had a very slow Hi-Side - no more then 5mph, no, really on a ZX12Rlanded heavy on my L/H knee, and did have all my kit on, but pulped my 'tibial plateau' anywaybut 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 ityou 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 nextmaybe a Harley or even a Ural outfitbut 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 meall expenses paid thenhowever, it wasn't to be, I will be back on 2 wheels one day, just not sure whenstay safeRambler

The most important safety

Oh dear thats awful I hope you are recovering well, only I don't understand the 120mph nip to the shop bit really, still glad your ok..

Oh man that just hurts my skin too. You must have had a nightmare that time. Get well soon.

Whoa! So sorry for that. Quick receovery....
