Michnus Down !!! and up again, thanks!
« on: June 18, 2010, 06:58:23 pm »
Just spoke to Michnus's wife, he had an accident this evening on the way to the EC bash....

First off, he seems fine, they are keeping him in hospital tonight for observation but no broken bones or other injuries apparent.

Details are sketchy but seems he lost the front end on a fairly straight piece of road on the N2, his wife went back to the scene afterwards and could not see any oil, diesel or anything else on the road and it seems as if the front may have locked up. Hopefully have more details soon..

The Uvex helmet seems to have done it's job as it is cracked and Michnus is ok...

Not a good weekend for the dogs. Glad he is okay!

I see a big helmet debate coming up and I, for one, will pay attention.

Should have redirected the ambulance to the bash, could have been observed there instead of hospital! Glad to hear nothing broken man. Ride again soon.
Have petrol will move
