    Yamihoe went Down

    So I havent been around much as of late 😅

    On top of life sucking, a lot, my beautiful FZ6 was taken away from me.

    A rather old woman turned across traffic into me and I bounced off the side of her little suv at 50.
    I felt it as soon as I tried to stand up.
    A plate, a rod, and 6 screws later and Im back on my FZ1. Still have a bit of a limp though lolYamihoe went Down-8e15f29c-465c-4d82-bed2-837f38bb6fc4-jpgYamihoe went Down-1bf32558-7608-47d6-bc41-b806b4278c40-jpgYamihoe went Down-1374109b-41fe-4379-aaf2-68200223e866-jpg

    Glad you're relatively okay! As long as you're still up and making trouble you'll be good to go. Sorry to hear about the FZ6 but good that you have an FZ1!
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Plus 1 ^^^..

    Your REAL lucky to still be breathing...

    Did you "clear" (get ejected over) the SUV or a solid stop (your body into the car)?

    The large bone pic, your arm or leg?

    That sucks, terrible to have this happen to you, but pleased you walked (well limped) away from it. Heal up soon.

    Re: Yamihoe went Down

    It was the leg, my arms were unscathed and I actually had zero road rash after I flew over the suv and landed. Thank goodness I had all my normal gear on and my Arai left me without even a headache. It definitely could have been worse. I really do miss my little blue 6 ��
