Ouch!

I hadn't checked in to my favorite thread for a bit, and just read of your mishap. Best wishes for you, and the bike. These bad things always seem to happen on the best days for some reason.

Keep the thread going, you Gixer nuts have me looking for one also.

Get well soon Kam
Bikes can be fixed or replaced, I had the same idea about bones etc, but as the years come they do tend to heal less quick

May be it's time to get a more sensible bike, at my age that's what I am going to do to calm down.....just ordered a KTM 1290 SD R

Yes we were heading home via. Tyndrum (2 blades and an R1) to sample the fish and chips, you should ask for commission. Glad the crash wasn`t fatal a rider form Dunoon said someone had overshot a bad corner on the road.
Really enjoy the A816, then again I really enjoy most of the roads up there

Phil


Hi Phil ...sounds like you had a top weekend enjoying the roads. Seems you were doing the reverse route we did ....we came up from Callander to Tyndrum then on to Inveraray and down to Lochgilphead...


I very sorry to have to report sad news ...... The accident on the Inveraray road - (which the helicopter had attended before picking me up).....one of the bikers died in hospital yesterday .....

Thanks mate .... as for these things happening on the best days, I am quite glad it did - if your going to spend a while lying in a road - much better to do it in warm sunshine instead of cold rain.

I'll certainly keep the thread going ...although it will get quieter now as we come to the winter season. Good to hear you are joining the 'cult of gixxer'... you won't regret it.

Cheers for the good wishes...... and advice, Lol! - enjoy being 'sensible' on your 180 bhp 'supermoto'

Congrats on the new bike - it's going to be a fun ride!

Eek OOoooooohhhh

I bet Sarah "gave you an earful" about paying attention.

The "sensible" KTM is what you will have to ride when you are too "experienced" to fold-up on a sportbike.

Ha ha ...more like a telling off for frightening her again and causing worry. ...accidents and heart attack - I'm keeping her on her toes.

That's a well stocked garage bubu ...... As for myself - I am healing fast thanks ...all wounds have dried up now and I even managed to get a wee 8 mile cycle this afternoon without too much pain.

Sarah on the course of 'The Great Scottish Run' which takes place tomorrow.....this was during our cycle today into Glasgow...

Thumb Bounce

Geez Kam, haven't you learned that you don't bounce well these days? Also think about the rest of us, where are we going to get our weekly update of Scottish pics? Very inconsiderate of you!
















Seriously, hope you get better soon mate. Cheers

Damn Kamchat! You know how to crash :) I'm glad to hear you're ok, and that your bike will likely be fixable. If it'd been me, I'd be hoping I died rather than get stuck with the bill for the helicopter flight (over here, an ambulance ride is around $1500, and that's with insurance - I can only just start to imagine the cost of a life flight) Continue healing, and do look into some sort of back protector, as others have mentioned.

Love the shots of Balquhidder!

Kam gets a good deal, they all know him now. "Oh bloody 'ell, we gotta go and pick Kam up from the side of the road again"

Glad you're healing well, being on a bicycle a week later is a great to see.
