bike + diesel = pain

Well first things first Im still in one piece :-)
Run home tonight , dry road , exiting a roundabout , leaned the bike over to take the bend and whoooosh front wheel folds under and Im sliding down the road at 30+mph .............

Bike is a mess , whole LHS is destroyed , crash bung probably saved me from breaking my left ankle/leg , escaped with just sore legs/shoulder and some grazing.
Helmet all scuffed on the front too so its bin material now too.

The reason?? f*cking diesel , a whole line of it on the exit of the roundabout clearly visible on the road.

Lucky , sh*t Ive lost one of my nine lives lol.

Write off ? Dunno but we will see.
Honda Insurance service has so far been poor , no numbers for recovery except
Motorcycle Direct , and I dont even have a policy with them ffs!!!
However top marks for recovery company Kerr Smith who took me and my bike back to Glasgow.

Will keep you all posted on whats happening..........
Off to bed now , gonna be sore in the morning but f*cking relieved to still be walking.

Take care out there ....

Bike hits 7k and M3 hits 20k miles ......! I ever do anything other than burn petrol lol

Bike passed over 7k , running well.
Car passed 20k which has doubled the cars mileage since I bought it a few months ago (10200 miles when bought).
10000 miles @ average 30MPG = 333 gallons = 1513 litres @ £1 per litre(optimax or ultimate) = 1500 notes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(oh and the small matter of averaging 2500 miles per month / 600 miles per week)

Oh and it needs new tyres soon its only money
