  12. Australia Post are Self-Insurer's so if you plead a good case you might be in for it.. I know plenty of people who have had stacks at work with injuries still current.. I reckon it would be like getting blood out of a stone to get compo and not have to work. AusPost will always find plenty for you to do :wink:

  13. Hey whitelighter, at least you threw it away while working, it could have been much worse..........like hmmmm lets say 12 k/hr over a speed hump or maybe even a wrotten ronnies carpark on a cheeseburger munchie run.

    Hope everything works out for the better and your back on yor gixxer soon.
    From a fellow gixxer rider :grin:
