    Someone low sided their bike at the end of the straight which leads into the last 2 corners and it slid into mine and knocked me off. :(

    Worst possible result GC, when it's wasn't even your own fault.!
    Hope you heal better than expected.

    Did it wait to happen until the end of the last session of the day.?

    StMarks - unfortunatly it was my last lap (probably one short of the end of the session) of the 2nd session of the day

    PeteH - if that’s the straight that heads back towards the pits/Luffield/Woodcote corners, yes.

    Kingfixer - yeah the guys were cool, a South African bloke (Wayne I think he was called) was very good, even if when he said ice it sounded like arse! Haha, we had a laugh about that - even I have an odd accent haha
     
  10. Good to hear you're (relatively) ok and the bike will mend.
    If I can help, you only have to shout fella.
    Give us a shout if you're coming down Cadwell, I might make it up for a brew.

    Cheers for the offer Bob, I maybe on the scrounge for a race tail unit if you have any lying around.

    I would still like to get to Cadwell on June 10th, even if it’s just as a passenger with my mate - and it would be cool to catch up with you if it’s convienent at the time

    Balls, that’s not how you want your TD to go - more importantly, did the photographer/someone’s GoPro catch the moment for the photo to go up on the wall...?! (and are you sure it didn’t have Repsol fairings)
     
  13. OMG, what happened!!! I thought you had disappeared in the afternoon, thought you had maybe packed up.

    I had a blast of a day, exhaust was fine, just hadn't done one of the clips up properly after refitting it since its repacking.
     
  14. Oops, ignore my what happened, didn't see all the other posts. Get well soon.

    Cool to hear your bike behaved itself after you sorted it Lisa :)

    Flyer - i had front and bum cam gopros on, but the guys bike kinda came at the side of mine. Havent checked the footage yet unfortunatly.
    Photographer wasnt on at that area - even though its abit morbid it kinda would have been cool to have photos of said incident lol

    Reviewing my video footage I managed to get a couple of stills.
    I didnt realise the guy was with his bike still when he hit me!! Imagine what was going through his mind when he was watching it all unfold infront of him!

    So I initially thought I fell on my right as thats the side the bike is damaged.
    I fell on my left side, but stretched my right ankle which caused the fracture :( IMG_3830.JPG IMG_3833.JPG

    That sneaky Marquez, stealing Rossi’s helmet... corking pic, can only but imagine what else was going through his head other than “feck”!! (Imagine that went through yours too)

    Hope the legs not too sore today and work are understanding about you recuperating from your sport related injury
