Glad you're here and posting and I like your "back in the saddle" attitude. Just a thought on your accident - sounds a lot like a rear flat too. As soon as the tire loses a significant amount of air the casing will shift to one side and then it gets ugly fast.

I was churning up trying to work it out, but then the cop that took my details told me two of their boys (there were 9 motocops with us), him and another had similiar happen in same area, I'm guessing it must have been the road.. Will go back and check it out one day soon but its 600 k's away, cheers and thanks for your thoughts

Grumpy,

I'm sorry to hear about your high-side, and very glad you're still here typing.

Heal well.

Agree with GrumpyG about the Sprint RS + Speedmaster combo -- works for me too.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid
