I'll shout you some beers Brendan, just worry about the fuel and we'll take care of everything else.

We'll have enough on board to cover meals.

The End

Hi All !!! It's been a little while since I last updated the build story. Unfortunately as of today the outfit is pretty much no more all thanks to a blind ass biatch who t-boned me while on my way to work.

I am here sitting here at home typing this while in a small world of pain.

Geez that's crap!

Small world of pain? Hope you are ok. The fact that your at home, playing on the computer is a good sign.
Off your feet?
Off work?

Take care and recover nicely.

Something to do whilst you are recovering - get every cent you can from the other side. It's not going to help you get better but it may give you some satisfaction.

Sorry to see the mishap. Hope you recover quick. You have been checked out properly haven't you?
Just be sure to tell the medic's of the pre-existing head issues . Ooops slipped out.
Does it hurt when you laugh?............ Well then let me tell a joke!
The bike should buffup ok and the Chiang, well a big hammer would sort that no prob.
Cheers, Bruce.

G'day All !!! I'm slowly healing, my ribs are causing some concern. I'm getting some x-rays tomorrow to see if they may be cracked. Still no word on the bike as yet. Currently in 2 minds to whether to let the the assessor write it off or fight to keep it on the road. Have been thinking along the lines of having the bike repaired and getting Phil to make some mods to the chair to repair it. Even though I have another solo to get around on, I am missing the mongrel bitch. As they say, once you go hack you never go back.

I am disappointed that I won't have the outfit for this weekend as the Very Special Kids Day is on this Sunday, which is a very fulfilling day.

Good to hear that you are doing well Brendan .
It would be a bummer if the assessors write it off .
Great looking set up you have there .

Another update

Well looks like 90% its going to be a write off. So I am a bit undecided at the moment as to what I'm going to do. I'm considering a few different options like starting afresh with another bike. I have some keen interest in the Honda VFR1200X or a Moto Guzzi NTX1200 Stelvio. I am also looking at buying back the outfit and repairing & re registering it if it becomes a repairable write off or buying a secondhand Super Ten and swapping all the stuff over.
