I Crashed !
« on: 06 August 2013, 08:45:13 AM »
well folks, on saturday evening i crashed !  :'(

was doing about 50 - 60 and lost control on a bend (maybe diesel ?), went through a hedge with a fence in it and ended up in a corn field.

looks like the bike is a write off, but still waiting to hear from the insurance company.

i was very, very, very lucky !

no broken bones at all.

the only thing i have is a very sore chest and a rather swollen right hand.

had yesterday off work to get to the doctors for some pills and advice, and get the insurance company boosted up, but back at work today on a "light duties" order from the doctors.

fortunately the boss is a biker too so he understands :)

ride safe all

i can't remember a thing from just before hitting the fence, but when i came to (felt like i had been dreaming) i had taken my rucksack off, my gloves off, jacket and helmet too. I'd also been over to the bike and turned the key off and hit the kill switch!
big thanks must go to the 2 cyclists who called 999 for me and the paramedics who were great guys!
was laughing and joking with them most of the time in the ambulance.
when i winced once, one of them told me jokingly to "grow a pair"!  :rollin
and what a star my girlfirend was.
came to the scene and stayed with me the whole time in hospital.
even drove me home - 40 miles out of her way!

Bike is going to need a fair few repairs though...

I started the trend...  :'(

When Foccers go down, they go down in style...  :rolleyes Bad luck, Enceladus! Seems like the dammage list is you worst, followed by DeadEye, followed by me with Arfa at the end. Not good.  :'( :'( :'(

i had a bad one 8 months ago, (on my 600) where some dumb bitch opened her door without looking. & to top it all the cheeky bitch drives off & leaves me in the road! only went back to work last monday! :\ & as for the damage list, think i might be the worst by snapping the ball off the top of the humerus & having to have a plate & 14 screws!

still hasn't scared me off riding the bike. jumped back on it as soon as i could the arm. all ive done is change my route home from work. :rollin

Hello, hope your all ok.
Just like to add another statistic to this - I came off mine the Sunday before last coming off a roundabout. Must be some sort of curse (in my case its a curse of incompetence).

Glad everyone's ok. I crashed out a couple of months ago (on my 600  :rolleyes ) and it's never pleasant, just try to learn something from it.

The good news is that the bike is now completely repaired! The only thing left to do is take the bike to a garage for carb tuning. Unless a Foccer around Andover is willing to help in return for copious cups of tea?  :lol
