Got cleaned up... Again

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Jabba, Jul 29, 2015.

  1. So yeah. Got cleaned up on the way into work again on the westgate freeway. Dude in a ute moved across into my lane and then the next. So 2 lanes in total. I couldn't swerve out of the way far enough. I hit his rear quarter panel, or more correctly, he hit me with his quarter panel. Not sure, but apparently I did some cool acrobatics and ended up on my back on the grass in the centre divide. No idea what happened to my bike or where it went. The guy who hit me stopped this time and had heaps of peeps stop to help, including 2 nurses! In hospital now with a fracture on my ulna and a pretty sore neck and back. Scans are all clear though, so once again I was mega lucky.

    Almost ready to give up on this motorcycle commuting caper :(

  12. The lenghts some people will go to, to put their footage on the net....! They sound like amazingly minor injuries, for being knocked off at Freeway speeds. I hope the recovery goes well.
