Thanks everyone once again. It was all a bit of a shock, its one thing to be out riding with friends and stuff happens, that is bad enough, but just to be sitting down
having a beer and have it happen in front of you, even though I know their bike I just didn't connect, it was all a bit surreal and I needed to write about it.

That's okay you can ask and the answer is No! Coffee was all that they had had. Police attended and seemed satisfied that it was just a silly accident.

Gosh, I hope I don't provoke a flame war!! But if it saves some pain, then perhaps it will be worth it. We went to see her tonight. She had her left knee cap filed and her right knee cap actually had bone shaved off it. They tried to get her out of bed today but the pain was too bad. Her right leg is so swollen. There wasn't enough skin to close the wound across her right knee. She was cheery enough but rang for pain killers whilst we were there - I have that effect on some people. She also broke her right little finger, I said I might have done that because I was holding her hand rather hard. She just laughed and said no, probably grabbing at the indicator did that. As she was falling she said she saw the mufflers in front of her and tried to grab them, luckily she didn't make contact, but she did grab the right rear indicator and broke it! She also has a broken rib, but she didn't even notice those two things because of her knees.

hmmm... makes you think about your last ride.

Oh just in case.. ATGATT = All the gear all the time

Geeze The Boss and I went for a quiet ride in the hills on Sunday.. Her first trip up there as pilot. I wasn't going to be playing so I just wore jeans. She is still looking for leathers and also only wearing jeans.

To be honest I think the girl in the story had become complacent, I know when I don't wear my play gear I am very aware of what I'm doing and take more care. We can't assume that for our pillions though.

I'm looking for a two piece zip up suit and kinda have been for a while now, I watched a bloke dump his bike in front of me early this year, then roll along with the road pulling his pants down.. and his jacket up. He had leather jacket and leather pants but they didn't connect. Ugly from TOO many aspects. haha.. Haven't been out too many times this year so priorities have been different.

Cheers all..
