Hi Chris,
After reading the first posts on the subject I had that sinking feeling...............it is always in the back of one's mind that things can go wrong.

Thanks for letting us all know what happened and most importantly that you are on the mend.

As per Bob, I hope you make a full recovery and get back on the bikes.

Best wishes,
Keith

Chris,
I echo everyone else's comments and wish you a speedy recovery. One benefit of having the Police Collision investigators attend the scene is that the cause of your crash has been identified and the state of the road will have been well documented. I know your health is your first priority but it appears you will have an excellent opportunity to claim against the Highways Authority for all your injuries and the full cost of a professional repair of your bike.
Best Wishes

Hi Chris, so glad to hear you are home again after such a terrible accident. I hope you get better very soon and you get your bike back soon too. The state of the roads are getting worse, makes you wonder what they actually do with the road tax millions of people pay!? They really need to get to grips with how dangerous theses can be for people on motorcycles and bicycles. Hundreds of cyclist are hurt each year due to them. This is something the government really needs to sort out!

Chris
really glad you are home and on the mend.
Its hard enough looking around and riding defensively in case of bad drivers without simultaneously looking at every dip in the road for pot holes.
Hope your bike gets mended soon.My Ariel was half crushed by a van about 4 years ago and my friends never dreamed id have it back on the road, but I did!
I'm sure with skill and perseverance you will have your bike looking good again
All the best
Mark
