By appearances minimal damage.
A scratched akra and bent gear lever.
Bike is at ktm, so as i know more, i will update.

Jannie at Raceworx already said the damage is next to nothing. They will do deep/proper assessment Monday/Tuesday

Was it really a Subaru taking you out!  >:D Joh! I am sure does not sit too comfortably as well.
Now all those broken ribs - FOK in CAPITALS! :eek7:  I had three recently and was bad enough.
I note the given up smoking ... CIGARETTES clarity. Guess with a punctured lung that is not optional as the smoke will escape? I am sure you will make up in a big way later.

Fuck, I just logged on this evening here in the USA, it's already Sunday morning over there, saw the thread and my blood went cold.


Read through it from the top, and was mightily relieved to see that Dave is doing ok-ish. A flail chest is a motherfucker, makes breathing very difficult until sorted out. I'll not go into the dynamics of it all here, but I'm guessing that Dave was very lucky not to get intubated on the scene.

Ganjaman, good crash buddy  :deal:

Not the best crash, but still a good one because you have survived.  :thumleft:

Get better soon man.  :thumleft:

Great to see you posting  :thumleft:

That lung drain looks all too familiar - okay so I won't post any jokes to make you laugh right now - cos I know what that does to the ribcage area  :imaposer:

Heal up quick  :3some:
