Hello gents, So this was just over a month ago when this happened. Had just finished work on a wet Saturday night at 22:30. Was on my way home when crossing the intersection of Montague and City Road I was collected by an X5. He was turning right and I was going straight. My first thought was get to the side of the bike fast to avoid me impacting myself into the car. I somehow managed to just do it, and superman'd across the road about 10metres down. I was lucky there that the road was wet so I didn't grip when I hit it. Helmet, boots and kevlar jeans all write off's. The jacket - Alpinestars Jaws survived as well as the RS-Tai Chi gloves. Always go quality! I actually walked away from this. Walked into the ambulance and waited for the arrival of my green stick to kick the pain. A month later and I'm still in pain, just had a cortisone injection in the shoulder and am waiting on TAC to send through the verifications to have my surgeon do a clean and scrape on my knee. Be careful out there guys, always be aware of your surroundings! On the bright side - was 2 days out of my restrictions so it was a hard way to get rid of the ninja. RIP. Now looking at CBR600RR's, 08' and up! Side note - the bloke in the X5 was nice enough to help me off the road!
