Sore? yes. it's a straight thru break with couple of detached fragments, and though it's the first collar bone I done do broken-ed, everthing I've heard about it's true, and I could feel the tentatively knitting bones breaking apart at least 3 times today. The ribs I'm used to and unless they're shattered there's really not a lot that can be done about them.

Of course I'm aware that people do plate up broked collar bones, however not being a moto gp rider or equestrian it hardly matters, and 27 years ago I had a break in the (?) bone of my right forearm which plated, however it was not a great success. Partly because in fit of pique I cut the cast off after a couple of weeks, and partly because the eventual removal happened the week before an expensive holiday, which was somewhat ruined as a result.

Astral got the bike back to The Place' this afternoon, and the only issues are a snapped headlight lens (Anyone got a spare?), and the right foot-peg, of which I have a spare, a little chip on a rocker cover fin, and that's about it...

WTF??!! I'll tell you this, planktonnn, but there's a reason why there's only two fully paid up members of the Martha Farquar International Collective, and that's because no-one else could endure the happenings that have befallen us in the last two years, and that's a fact.....

Glad to hear that there's not much wrong with the bike (I have a headlamp glass, can bring it over sunday if you're at home?) and that bonewise you aren't too badly off, but collar bone and ribs eh? I bet you're stifling the laughs and trying not to giggle too much....

On a mature and sensible level, I have to ask the question - were you going too fast and/or was a roundabout involved at all, hmmmm? You know how you are with excessive speed and negotiating road-features......

As soon as you're able, please provide a detailed narrative re the crash in order to amuse and enlighten the assembled throng, ok?

By the way, glad you're not dead and hope the bone-knitting goes well. I'll have a turtle-kneck jumper and a scarf, cheers.

Better than me, last time I fell off I was going about 3 mph. Hope you heal up soon. Cannot wait to hear the story.

  • * Side stand spring pivot plate (just 1.50!) - is it 1 or 2?, how are the springs? FRA10739 & FRA10721 - where was the previous discussion & pics in this thread? Do please find it for me dear minions of mine...

Tightened up fork tops and steering stem nut. All were finger tight
Repaired broken indicator switch and replaced rely.
Washed bike
Stood and stared at it
Changed air screw in left carb, no fuel so cant run it up
Adjusted position of right hand fuel tap as it was annoying me
Investigated side light and found bulb loose in light.

Stood and stared at it abit more.

dug out "other" mono bevel and stared at that for a bit.

Filled gear box up with oil, it still wines. Might go to "daves" and see what he thinks.

DBD......keep standing and looking at the STD1. A fine motorcycle. I've just remembered that I put in rather a long steering lock stop bolt, so the levers didn't foul on the fairing. This probably explains the bike's tendency to fall over on low-speed turns. I just thought I'd mention it. Also...battery fucked? That fucker was brand new this time last year. I'll throw a rock through the window of the shop I bought it from.....also fork tops and steering head loose? That'll explain the tank slappers. Well done, keep diagnosing and carrying out remedial actions......

Also, I'd like to be the first with bone-related planktonnn information - it appears his collar bone is detached at both ends. That must make it a floaty bone yeah? If I was him, I'd get my doctor to prescribe some hefty anaesthesia.....I suggest 'oramorph' which is a very nice morphine-based pain killer. It makes everything feel just great.

ps Bloo...very nice bike. I'm sending over another ex-wife in the crate.

A fully floating collar bone, they cost extra dont they????

Re the STD1 the left fork seal is boned and notchy head bearings prob not helping matters.

Going to concentrate on the "blue" twin shock rt and get that up and running and then sort out the std1.

Bought road tax for the cafe today so the mono might get the "spare" tax, tested and insured number plate if you get my drift

Pissed crash & burn, & utterly childish behaviour from an adult. No, not me.....

Well I'm no closer to knowing how & why the accident happened. All I can recall is the events immediately prior, which is me coming sedately around a roundabout* to find the two incoming lanes doing two entirely different things. The approaching right hand lane, which is designated straight on, contained a car doing just the right thing, which is waiting stationary. The approaching left hand lane is left turn only, and the arse driving the car therein continued dawdling out into my path, all the time looking at me & not reacting at all. Not slowing to keep out of my way, and not gassing it to get out of my way. Just gazing at me like a useless startled twat.

Now this is where my memory konks out. I have a passing impression of jumping up the kerb onto the grass, though this recollection is so vague that it can't really be trusted. At a guess the driver kept going and I braked, lifting up to try & go round the back of him. He may or may not have slowed, but either way I seem to have had to avoid him & taken myself off-road to miss him. I've then pitched off the bike and, from the damage both I and my leathers & helmet have received, seem to have landed on my right side. Thus a right broken collar bone, bruising on the right hip, and 3 or four ribs banged in at the flank by my right elbow. One also popping at the sternum, another seemingly cracking at the links at the rear (whatever that's called), shoulder & head. No damage to the gloves or hands/wrists so I imagine I landed on the right flank.

No sign of action by the police either against me or on my behalf, and no idea if the errant driver stopped, was stopped, or if anyone got the reg number. To me it seems a clear case of 'driving without due care & attention' or careless driving. No, not on my part you un-trusting gits

So I remember coming to in the shambulance, and the polis asking me which key worked the padlock to chain the bike up. Thankfully I was clued up enough to refuse the option of it being recovered to the polis yard, as last time this was done it cost me 266 fucking pounds. From there I've got nothing until coming to in the ICU in the emergency room, whining at the staff to put me down like the dog that I am.

It seems as though Asstral passed the scene of the incident & saw my bike, so he turned up @ the emergency room later, and eventually gave me a lift back to the flat. He was also kind enough to ride the bike back to the flat (half mile) on the Thursday...

Yesterday was a bad day for bone repairs. You try sneezing with broken ribs - all back to square one some week & a half after the crash. Not fun.

And talking of not fun, as I'm no longer sitting single & shattered in a small room, my dear ex wife has unilaterally decided that my children no longer wish to know me, and my shed & its contents are magically no longer welcome at the former family home... I doubt I will ever understand the stoopidity of hoomans.
