    Yesterday Sunday November the 25th Ellen had a huge off on the open road.

    I report that she is ok after and ambulance ride, hospital visit and Xrays etc.

    She has suffered severe bruising and contusions to leg ankle, right bum cheek and down her back and around her neck, today she can hardly walk, all X rays came out ok.

    We are going to lay low for the next few days and formulate a plan B, needless to say this is very much a trip changing event.

    Couple of pics from yesterday.

    Love to all.

    Holy s%^# Andi, I am so sorry to hear about Ellen's wreck. I truly hope that she is going to be alriight. Is there anything I can do to help? If you need a safe place to store the bike(s) I have a place in Jalisco and one in Guerrero. I also have contacts in Mexico (City) where you can safely store the bike(s) if need be.

    Take care and be well.

    Heya Mike, thanks mate, we really don't know what happened, insure if she hit something that sent her flying or what, I passed the bus safely but obviously she didn't.

    Heya JD, yeah bit of a bugga but she is OK which is the main thing. We may call on you depending on timing etc, we have contacted our insurance to see what happens next, we will be held up here for the next few days getting her body back in order.

    Will let you know what we are doing in the next few days, still be great to meet up .

    Cheers Andi

    Thanks crimbo, you guys are great, all our insurance is US based etc so the main thing is to get Ellen sorted then develop a plane of attack from there.

    Got bro (Trialsrider) on hand with all our detailed stuff so we should be good but thanks for your support mate.

    Wow that is very very similar, no reason we can point at, Ellen was doing 80 maybe 85 km/hr (55 mphr )tops when she went down with no explanation, I have checked the steering stops and no damage.:huh

    Hi Guys,
    Just logged on. Totally shocked and surprised Ellen binned it there but relieved it was not worse. All the best for a speedy patch-up of rider and steed.
