hay gang, just got home from the hospital yesterday. had a wicked highside on saturday in victoria. was ejected from bike about 15' according to witnesses. i broke my left tib and fib compound. the bike is amazingly ok. not much danage at all. the leg has titanium in it now they tell me. rod and pins. police called it no fault. i'm fine. will be going ahead with racing plans in 2007 though delayed i am sure. it was my '06 gsxr 600

dont ever underestimate the bottom end on these babies.

Please tell me it wasn't the RSV...

...I mean... I'm glad to hear you're alright.
Good to hear you're ok. At least you did the crash properly !! :)
ouch.. glad you're ok.
Spero did the same thing at Mission a few years back. Same thing, SRAD to the highside.

Not a fun recovery. Glad to hear you are OK - pretty surprised it's no fault though
Those compound ones make me cringe.
Have a speedy recovery!
damn! Sorry to hear, get some rest!
Holy crap, thats horrible news. glad to hear your ok!
Wow Darren, you're still in one piece at least(with some metal)

Heal up and i'll see you at some track next season :cheers
Oh no! Sorry to hear about your crash, Darren. I'm glad you're okay though. Allow yourself to take it easy over the next couple months. Heal up and we'll see ya out there soon :thumbup

Take care,
Jess
ahhh shit Darren....I am glad your ok! I will phone you later and find out some more details from you. give me a shout if you need to vent, or just scream from frustration of being cooped up on the couch!
:rockon Welcome to the bionic club!!

See less See more
that's one way to get screwed i guess ...
Sorry to hear about your crash. Heal fast.

But deep inside, you know it's gonna be cool to tell the story to the young airport customs chick when you keep setting off the metal detector.

...or you can not tell her, and enjoy the mandatory cavity search. "Honestly, I have no idea why I keep setting it off! Search me!" :D

It's only funny the first 20 times, after that its just a hassle.
Glad you're okay.

A bit off topic, who is it to blame when you crash because of a pothole? ICBC pays it all or half/half or you're just fucked?
