Ouch!
Sorry to hear that mate.
The main thing is you are ok and secondly the damage sounds to be all cosmetic.
Hopefully she'll be back on the road in no time.

Unhappy Ouch... Bad start to the biking season

.

Andrew.. Sorry the hear about your spill and I feel your pain mate.. Hopefully the bike will be back to mint condition before the summer gets here..

However, the next time you wake up on a beautiful warm sunshine day and the wife and daughter out for the day, and you think to yourself "what else was there to do ?".. do what the rest of us all do and crack one out ..
After that, you'll just go back to sleep and the bike wouldn't need fixing..

Simples!

Classic John.
"Crack one out".
Laughter is the best medicine, unless your ribs are broken - then it's not so shit hot.
Sorry to hear about your fall, Andrew.
As long as you're O.K. - the bike can be sorted.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

John, I understand you may not get too many "warm sunshine days" in your neck of the woods. But is this how you celebrate one by "cracking one out"?
