Hi all. Haven't been on site for ages, some may rember me, the ox, gixxer,alisong, roeby and the like. Well I still have my life (only just) but no longer have a bike! In September a pratt in a new Range Rover decided he wanted my but of road and pushed me off it. I went onto the verge and through a ver very big road sign = IT HURT! My right leg bent the 3" steel pole supporting the sign, me and the bike went through the rest of the sign. On landing my left wrist broke. Result = hospital, wrist op - metal plate & screws, knee of right leg twice the size major rupture ligaments and tendons etc. plus back problems. Out of hospital for a while but still getting physio etc. Bike written off!!!! Wife doesn't want me to get another bike, doesn't want a phone call like the last one again! Has taken a while but other party has now admitted liability, still waiting for Police to say if prosecuting him. Lucky I had a good witness. So that's it bike dead but ME not. Will always be a biker at heart.

Ouch, can sympathize.
At least your alive, nice to see you again.
I like long walks,especially when they are taken
by people who annoy me.
