yep, but I only just. Wasn't enough time space to go into a slide.

Oh and the vehicle that pulled out on me is the one in the corner of the middle pic. I think I may have hit the rear tyre, police say it was the rear bar so I ALMOST got in behind hiim. I was about in line with where his ute is when he pulled across from the sidestreet.

Keep strong, live and learn

Good thing he didn't weasel his way out of this, I hope he learned a lesson, too.

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

Are you going to get another one?

TrooperLu's have great discounts on the '12 models.


I am really bummed about this.

I still get those 'oh shit' moments.... The day I don't, is the day I stop riding.

Not sure, will see what the buy back is, on the assumption it'll be written off. I'd like to buy it back and rebuild it for bears racing. Always been a trumpy boy so hard to move away from the brand after coming back, might get a tiger possibly a thru ton, even eyed off the mv 675.

A mate of mine is at Lu's so I'll get looked after there that I know.

I will get a Tiger for street riding and track my Daytona when I leave for the Air Force.

Glad to hear your ok, and your probably 1 of a hand full of people that had the person who caused the accident accept fault and even check up on you to see how your doing. Hopefully you get a nice replacement and can buy back the blue beauty.

My first thought was also wondering how in the hell could you snap both forks and keep the rest of the bike pristine. Ive never seen that. Looks like a good insurance buy back to part out or track. Hope you heal up quickly.

No alas, the junkie towie apparently skull dragged it onto the tray and then held it down with the winch cable. From there it was taken 20 or so KM's so I can only imagine the panel damage.

My brother had got there to get it with the bike trailer but the police wouldn't let him touch it and he was trying to tell them how to handle it etc but was told to go away.

It's now being taken to someone I knows workshop that only does bike repairs and is where most bikes go around here should be there tommorow so I'll get a lift down to see it.
