    Hi Twisty, you will enjoy the RS if you get it, and you chose the fastest one with the red frame :)

    Welcome along. Great choice of bike. But then we are a bit biased here ;)

    You weren't playing silly buggers at Nurburgring were you? o_O
    Hope you're all mended now. :)

    Cheers

    Looks like a total loss. Maybe the engine, ecu and gearbox can be rescued?

    Holy crap on a cracker! That looks like one helluva high speed off!
    I hope you weren't too seriously messed up.

    Cheers

    PS: Nice save with the Mrs. Quick thinking there!!

    Sorry to hear of your crash Twisty, but inspired by your confidence to climb back on a bike. All credit to you. Good luck with your RS.

    Good grief! I'd say that definitely falls into the "seriously messed up" category. Well done on a speedy recovery (if it happened *this* July) and like other said, well done for have the determination to get back on a bike.
    The RS will put a big smile on your face :)

    Cheers

    I'm presuming the hearing loss was caused by the almighty blocking from better half ?:):)

    To be Honest she is a one of the better Half she Got a plane To Germany the next day Then got a train to Koblenz to see me then she took me to Manchester to look at and buy a replacement Bike
    I am a lucky guy most other half would have refused me from ever getting a bike after what I been through and still going through ??
