    Flippin heck , what on earth did you hit to do all that damage, although I understand it looks worse that it was due to the fire brigade cutting the roof off.
    Doesn't look like a "slow speed" impact....
    And you only sustained a broken arm and shoulder. Im guessing the air bags did there job then....
    I wish you a quick and full recovery...

    Been and got another :smiley:

    gMcXFHw.jpg

    It has been well looked after, not been round it with a fine tooth comb, but it is more tidy than my last one. Has already been played with a bit, has intercooler, turbo cooler, ITG induction kit, exhaust system and 200 cell cat, RSTuning remap to 300+bhp

    Still toying with swapping the springs, think i will leave it for now. I have ordered the white interior led kit again, will fit that some point, and have order orange led 501 for the front and wing mirrors, to get rid of the orange glow. Also thinking about changing the color of the front blade.

    Glad to hear you survived that! Looked pretty hairy. Good for you getting straight back in the saddle.

    Can we have the details of the accident (without incriminating yourself of course)?

    Interested to learn how it all happened. Perhaps some learning for people?
