  • Bulbous has highsided........ Doh!

    Well, the mix of oily roads and a sprinkle of rain equals one highsided TLR and one fuckin' painful broken collarbone. lucky i was only doing about 45kph, but still, fast enough to hurt. Coming around a sharp left near the freeway in leederville and both ends slid away to the right. i managed to hold her up for about 15 metres in a sort of powerslide style, and my knee did its fair share too. i just wish i was wearing more than shorts at the time then she gripped again and up and over i went. i landed on my head and right shoulder and the force just kinda seperated my collarbone in the middle. the bike slid for about 40metres more, sending sparks all over the place. still, the damage is pretty minimal for a biggish stack, but the pipes alone are a grand, so i think it might be time to put in a claim. not happy, but at least i walked away, and there is nothing like the feeling when you lift your bike up off the road thinking it is not too bad, and halfway up your whole shoulder seperates, causing the bike to drop a bit and nearly slice off my index finger between the tank and frame. i almost passed out, but i managed to hold in the tears till the x-ray room in St John of God.........

    two weeks with a sling, then another two taking it easy, and no weights training for another two after that. hopefully see ya down at scarbs on wednesday night still, just come the cage, thats all. worst bitr is, i will miss the motorplex show tomorrow night cause it hurts a bit too much to be moving a lot.

    anyway, still alive, bike's not too bad. post pics sometime soon.

                      Sorry to hear dude.

                      I broke mine on Xmas day! But if you think it hurts today, wait until you try and sit up from bed tomorrow morning. :shock:

                      Are you sure you want to claim? I mean once you count the loss of no claim bonus, the gap payment and the increased cost of insurance next year the amount of money to fix the cans may not be that much.

                      Blame the roads and get compo fron the guvmitt
                      You put the c*nt in country run
