    As long as it's not them that has to pay, no one really minds the debt.

    Sorry to hear about the mishap. 4 1/2 days is a long time. Get someone to smuggle you in some salt. My last stay made me appreciate the crunchiness of cardboard and the blessings of salt.

    Well guys a quick update.

    I was on an organised ride and went into the approach of what first appeared to be a normal corner. Turned out to be a bit hot and I got on the anchors...rear slipped...I let off the brakes and face planted the road...probably a high side. The bike slid on its RH side into a ditch. Its rideable and runs fine but needs totally new plastics from front to back. I am still waiting to hear if its going to be written off.

    I am ambivalent as I feel it is high time to either give riding away...this is the second Busa I have crashed...the first I escaped with nothing more than heavy bruising...or ride something more suitable to my obviously slower reflexes.

    Me... on my RH side I ended up with four or more broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken clavicle, a broken scapula,...they fitted a plate to the shoulder as it was basically floating around in space so I have a five inch wound waiting to have the stitches removed and a broken LH thumb. I'm well on the road to recovery...should be no ongoing problems...other than an inability to ride round a corner without making a pigs arse of it.

    Its funny I was thinking about getting a Moto Guzzi to replace the Busa perhaps now I will and consequently take riding at a more leisurely pace more in keeping with my age...or just ride the Busa in second everywhere...lol.

    Thanks, everyone, for the well wishes...I will still come here to annoy all and sundry.

    Steve

    I'm glad you're going to come out of this in one piece and with little physical evidence. Age has a way of making itself known in blunt ways. We start out small in our youth and work our way up to bigger and faster and I suppose it's only reasonable to have to reverse the process at the other end. I know I have.

    Wow, sounds like you took a beating. Glad to hear your recovery has such a positive prognosis. Hey cruisers are pretty fun too.
