Default Well another tona bites the dust. RIP my baby

Well thankfully I'm still around to tell the story but my baby isn't.

Had a hilux pull out of a sidestreet on me yesterday leaving me about 3 metres to try and avoid it, almost did but just clipped the back 1/4.

Resulting in this....

That's the first thing I noticed too.
That and I've never seen the forks snap like that on anyone else's post crash photos.

That sucks mate, should be all covered by insurance though, with the hilux driver being in the wrong?

My first thought was that it looked like blood too! Then I saw the completely snapped fork and realised it was probably fork oil or something similar.

Yeh I was lucky to come out of it as well as I have, very sore and banged up though. No broken bones or anything. Know I know how crash test dummies must feel the day after, I'll take a slide over hitting a solid object anyday.

Is a mixture of coolant and fork oil.

Yeh his insurance will cover it, he's even sent me texts asking how I am and to let him know how the healing is going. And was the first to admit fault so wont be issues with the insewerants co etc etc.

I'm off for another does of painkillers and rest up in bed with some bike racing vids.

Sorry about that. Sucks!

That "Daytona Blood" is as sacred as unicorn blood. Too bad it is wasted on the road and not the inside of the bike. Looks like she bled out. Poor baby...

Good to see you came out of it in one piece. How's the gear now?

I hope the recovery is quick, the insurance claims are easy & hassle free and of course, enjoy picking out a new bike

Mate i know you were having some trouble with your back - i can imagine the last thing you needed was to be banged up like that.

Hope your recovering well and back up the ol road soon.
