Another one bites the tarmac....
30.09.2008 at 15:26:04
 
Yep, I've been down the road as they say.  
 
Broken a rib or two, twisted my left knee badly and bruised all the way from my left wrist to my shoulder.
 
And it wasn't even my bike (I've ended up with a 500 insurance excess bill though Smiley)

Hi Vic
 
Sorry to hear you had an "off" - glad you've survived more or less intact.
 
We really need details and, preferably, photos - so we can:
 
a> express correct amounts of sympathy
b> learn from your mistakes
c> take the piss remorselessly!
 
Catch you soon

It's far too embarrasing to give details........

Perhaps we need to apply some sort of truth-serum to extract the information?
 
Perhaps beer might work...

...cider maybe Wink
 
Looks like I may have done some serious damage to my left knee. The ribs are healing up nicely but my knee is still hurting like hell. The doc says I may have torn my meniscus (which is as painfull as it sounds) which is the cartlidge that holds the bones together. Roll Eyes
 
If so it means having to have another operation on my knee........
