Came back from Portsmouth last night and took a slip way to the A3 by Guildford and shortly after accelerating I find myself hi-siding from the bike and hitting the hardshoulder barrier excessively.
I got up like nothing happens and tried to get the bike up (which I was able to do as the CBR(PC40) is a girls bike).
1st - the bike looks quite alright (people who saw me later at night at the ACE can confirm). It simply rested (digged :w00t: )in the grass, so I could drive it without problems, but the right mirror was gone and the right front indicator was hanging down and grass everywhere :D. The steering feels a bit light, though. Fortunately a dude on a 125cc Chopper stopped and escorted me back in to Hammersmith at around 40mph, as I was not sure how safe it is on the motorway on my own with this bike.
2nd - I got to A&E later and had my spine checked and my right ankle x-rayed. The nurses at the hospital thought I am joking around because there was everything alright with my skin, but I brought my Helmet as proof so that they can see where my head hit the barrier. Anyway, everything seems okay - thanks to high priced GEAR- and I feel really up like I had a massive BAR FIGHT last night!
Think I am gonna stay off the bike for 2 weeks until all the sprains are ok and in that time I gonna get the BIKE stuff sorted.
Again, thanks to the DUDE on the Chopper for escorting me into London.
Sorry to hear of your off, but glad you’re not to hurt. Take it easy for a while and as you say, sort the bike in the meantime.Good luck with the repairs to both you and the bike and I hope you heal quickly.
By the way…as you’re so lucky at the mo…any chance you can buy me a lotto ticket!?
watch out with those RR’s mate when i was having repair work done from people reversing into it so a straight fall to the ground the bill came to around £3500 each time. Both times replacing the swing arm due to it getting scratched but still working fine. Hope you’re back on the road soon. Take a page out of my book to and ride like a girl:P
