Jassie.... Sorry to hear!

Were you on the Lesotho trip with Pete?

Glad to hear your bike is OK ; ) .... Amazing how well those 990's crash

Yes, they just arrived safely in Rhodes.
Lucky buggers go into Lesotho tomorrow.

Feeling very down right now, I was so looking forward to
And really needed this trip for my sanity!

But eish the pain is something else!

Heal up soon Mambat and look on the bright side, it could have been a lot worse and you can always plan another trip  :thumleft:

Sounds like your kit took quite a knock! What speed were you doing? I don't mean eaxactly, but were you cruising or flying?
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

I had a similar fall with similar injuries 5 weeks ago - my reccomendations are that you do not drink alcohol right now and plan a trip to the ER when you land

You MUST go for X-Rays tonight !!

Friend if your flight is only 20h00 make sure you have got some pain pills with you.
With those ribs can you sit up for more than a hour? Think the flight is going to be some ordeal.
Strongs to you :eek7:

On strong stuff but shitting myself for that!
Been upgraded to business class so should help.

Collarbone is actually giving me most grief, broken and pushing out towards my throat
Get very nar when I move or bump the general area.
The trip out on the back of a bike was something else   :'(

Roger that, the couple of sips of beer just tasted terrible!

I was in cruise mode when I bind it, just had all stopped, pulled off
Hooked second accelerated then the bike snapped sideways I was spat right
Out of my seat over the top of the bike.
Landed head first, then the bike hit me.
Just bad luck!

Yeah I keep thinking imagine if I had binned it at those stupid speeds   :o
I have had many offs, broken lots but always on the track with immediate
Help, if my injuries were more severe I shudder to think of the what then!

Glad you had a lekker ride though and you were thinking of me   8)
