Yesterday at the HART Ride for Life (Kilsyth) a few of us went out for some test rides (Stefan, Nee, Azz, Jadey & Mach). Stefan was having an awesome time on the blackbird but was unfortunately involved in an accident with a car. After a grand performance flying through the air doing his best to impersonate superman, the ambo's came and took him to Maroondah hospital where x-rays confirmed a bad break in his lower right leg. He's been transferred to Knox private and is currently awaiting surgery. It was quite a horrible thing to see as he flew up into the air a good few (ten?) metres and landed out of sight behind a car. I was frozen on my bike screaming but luckily as there were plenty of people around (including the Hart instructors supervising the test ride) someone had called an ambulance almost instantly and there was a nurse in one of the cars. When I crossed the road he was conscious and held it together really well, he calmly said that he thinks he's broken his leg... not suprising as the car bumper drove straight into it at a fairly high speed. I don't know what road we were on in Kilsyth but it was pretty big so maybe a 70k zone? Stefan was thankfully wearing full gear (a leather jacket in that heat!) and i don't think he has any other injuries. He is in high spirits. Hopefully the surgery goes well and the healing process is a speedy one. He says he likes the vfr800 more than the blackbird.
