Glad you're OK bud. It could have been much worse. Ironically, I had much more minor incident this weekend, luckily I was wearing my neck brace otherwise that wasp would have taken my head off.....

The truck driver must have thought you were an oncoming scooter and didn't expect so much damage to his lorry. Size is might and might is right ::)

I think the dent on the rim of the bonnet was caused by your head, no wonder you are feeling a little eina.

It looks like you landed in dirt. Tar could have been a lot worse.

Good luck with the leg, hope you have a speedy recovery!
For the love of it.

Sterkte en spoedige herstel  :thumleft:

Wees ook dankbaar jy is nie ook aangerand deur die omstanders nie. Twee weke terug wou ""toeskouers" by `n bike ongeluk in  Oudtshoorn, waarin `n persoon doodgery is, die biker aanrand. Hy moes inderhaas weggeneem word van die toneel.
Wanneer ek iets wil herstel, is dit heeltemal gef*k daarna.

Could have been so much worse.

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

Agreed.. very good

that could have been punching your ticket.. glad all went relatively ok

Baie dankie julle!


Ek oorweeg nog om die fiets terug te koop vanaf die versekering en dan verkoop as parte, maar 1 nie lus vir die moeite nie en 2 nie in SA nie so dit maak alles ook maar n biki meer complex.

So die doc se my PCL is af, so n beentjie ini knie so dit sal more oggend n paar skroewe kry en dan is ek 7-12 weke in n leg brace (ten minste nie gips nie so ek kan nog krap waar dit jeuk)    :lol8:


Maar nou ja eks dankbaar om asem te haal, om so klein beseerte te he is net n wonderwerk.
