Went for a chilled saturday morning ride luckily all my atgat on, this truck turns in front of me.

Hell, glad you can smile.
That truck was a write-off long before it hit you.
Hope you heal well and you can sort a new bike with insurance.

I got off very luckily it really is a miracle.


Bruised up everywhere but only one break, fractures on right knee, probably that bumper.


Im having surgery tomorrow.



I can feel lots of pain in my neck muscles, wonder what would have happened without the neck brace!!!


I was found in the bush next to the road

Could have been so much worse.

Parking a bike under a truck and walking away relatively unscathed can be called a good crash.
