Egiste Down but ok.

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Seany, Oct 31, 2006.

  1. Egiste just spoke to me from the Royal Melbourne to say he has been knocked off his bike but is Ok and not seriously injured, and asked me to pass on that info.

    It seems a car ran a red light as he was comming off Errol St and cleaned him up before he had any chance to react.



    So far the extent of his damage is a suspected broken collor bone, just waiting for x-rays to come through.

    He doesn't know what the bike looks like but from his description of the stack it's likely to be a write off. The RACV were called to pick it up so I guess they'll let him know.

    That's about all I know at this stage but at least he's talking and in good spitits. :)

  12. geez, that not good news, and glad to mark is relatively ok, or like said above the best you can be for what happened......

    also a reminder to always look both ways before you take off from a set of lights, as cars running red lights is more common then many would think.....

  13. Damn. That is shite.

    Hopefully Mark is not hurt too badly and back on the bike quickly.

    Lucky bugger comes off his bike and gets in good spitits. I assume that's a good thing.
