Mishap

Post by BillWest » Sun Aug 19, 2018 5:23 pm

One of our members suffered a bit of a mishap on the way home from coffee yesterday.

John M hit a kerb at low speed, in the Vic Park area, and came off second best.
Keith Snr was there soon after it happened, and Keith Jnr was there not long after that.

As a result, he was taken to RPH. The ambos put a neck brace on just in case.

Scans have revealed that there is no damage to neck nor back.
However, he has a broken wrist which will most likely be plated and pinned tomorrow.
He seems to be in good spirits.

His bike (Honda Jnr) has a minor scratch on the right foot peg.
It was stored overnight in someone's shed in the area, and this morning Keith Snr and I trailered it to his family's place in Jane Brook.

Many thanks to all for your visits and messages after my rough landing on Saturday. To Bill and Keith (Snr), a special thank you for taking care of my bike and gear. It brings home to us when this sort of thing happens, what a bunch of true friends we have in Ulysses.
