  • Car crashes are no fun

    I've come off bikes on track and on road a few times over the years. But I bought an old bomb for a few hundred bucks whilst my Ducati is out of action and an old bid decided STOP signs don't mean what they say. Thank Christ I wasn't on my bike ...

    ouch, a bit of luck in several instances, i take it you walked away?
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

            Fess up who hacked GSX's account? This post was perfectly readable in every way

              Bit of Turtle wax and the old Kinga will be good as new.

                  Holy crap that is one bent up car, I hope either the state or herself or both re-evaluate whether she can stay on the road after that.

                      Side impact protection wasn't a selling point on cars designed and built in the 60s and 70s.
                      “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                          That's a fair point you have, though given the material Holdens were made of at that time, that's still a fairly decent hit

                            Nah, not exactly. The whole "old cars were tanks" thing is a bit of a misnomer.

                            Modern cars get a lot more damage concentrated in a particular area (in the crumple zones) - the actual passenger cell is MUCH stronger these days.

                              Nup, it still will never be a kinga!

                              If the tyre wasn't flat , you could still drive that thing around for another 5000 years. [or it rusted out the instrument panel. ]
