  1. Hi Tone 2
    we left home Sunday morning to go down the south coats to see a couple of old friends 1 I Haven’t seen in 30 years that had just had heart surgery any way we never made it there.
    We left home stope in for fuel about 3 km from home and off on our way well sort of about 3 km down the road I saw a sports bike do a u-turn and tear off down the road in the same direction we were going, then about 1 km further on I saw him with a car pulled over on the side of the road he was still on his bike next to the drivers side window, the next thing I knew was he had pulled out with out warning and was right on top of us (Partner is on the back with me) I moved to the right to avoid collision as he was accelerating hard I thought he was going to go straight a head then with out warning or looking he braked hard and did a U-Turn not more than 1.5 m in front of us I was no way expecting him to do that, at that time I quickly looked for a way out and then Crunch I could hear metal bending then all quiet until someone rolled me over on the road and the pain woke me up I think, I thought what happened how did I get here then remembered the sports bike oh that’s right, tried to look for my partner but could not move then saw her standing over me seeing if I was aright (thought thank F@#k for that) my right leg would not move and was killing me but could move all my toes so thought that was a good, this lady came from no where and put her hand on my chest and said don’t try to get up help was on the way I also thought that was a good thing as I could not move any way. Well ended up at west mead with a badly dislocated right shoulder and badly grassed right elbow and grassed left elbow and left knee badly bruised left thigh mussel and calf mussel and my partner also got a badly bruised left shoulder and hip and stomach. Hmmm not one of our better days IMG_2173.

  8. Some of my nearest misses have been thanks to fellow riders. He's lucky you weren't driving a car; for once the phrase temporary Australian seems fair.
