yeh surprissingly, and it comes down to going into the fetal position as I came off, back and neck aren't to bad (I have to live with collapsed vertabrae c3 - c7)

Elbow protector in the jacket is smashed and right sleeve torn up, hips the size of a xmas roast and the inside of my right ankle is swallon and grazed from the rearseats. Bodies starting to stiffen up now though so a few days of taking it easy and I'll be back to my normal banged up and broken self, justy with another scar or two and another story to tell at the pub.

Sorry to see that man! Never a good thing to see/hear of someone going down. Glad the outcome looks good. Bikes can be replaced, lives can't!

Ouch!

Such a shame. A beautiful bike. Glad you're (relatively) okay. Heal up soon!

Dang that sucks! Glad you are alright.

I've never seen a bike with the forks snapped off that wasn't COMPLETELY totalled. Almost looks like you kept it upright?

Wow! That looks nasty. Glad you're not all twisted up like the bike.

That sucks man. Good luck with the insurance and hope the injuries don't give you any more grief than a stiff couple of days.

They used to call the Toyota pickup the "Hi-Lux" in the USA as well, up until I believe 1978-ish. Coul be off a year or so, I had a 79 model and it was referred as just a pickup, but I saw the word "Hi-Lux" in the owners manual a lot.

Hilux's are the most indestructible truck ever, well, the older models. They are probably most like the tacoma here in the states.

Sorry to hear about your off man, hope you heal well.
