Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo  :drunken_smilie:

Ja, not my proudest moment...  :biggrin:

Sprocketbek said I flew spectacularly through the air!!! Where's a helmetcam when you need one...

Road was snot deluxe and I got a bit of a slapper and then highsided.... ended up a good few metres away from the bike. Whoopsy!!!

Thanks for the well wishes girls and boys.

Thank you to Pure-Orange for staying with me and for Sprocketbek for going home and returning to collect me and the broom... and taking me to the hospital... think the nurses are still sweeping half of Moorreesburg's mud off the floors.  ;D

Thanks Pistonpete for the use of your bath and please thank the missus for those yummy pills!

Ligaments torn right off connecting collarbone and shoulder.

One or two pics...

Yamaha's sure fall down well.... very little damage...
