Unfortunately have become an ex 300 rider

I have recently been a very lucky man and survived an 80kmh to 0 crash when I collided with a car who pulled out across a 4 lane road to turn right on to the other side. I tried to brake in time however realised I wouldn't stop in time and enacted an evasive maneuver to the rear of the car. The car then stopped dead finally seeing me coming. I hit the rear of the vehicle and was knocked out cold.

Luckily I only have a broken right thumb and a lot of bruising around my groin and collar bones and chest. Surprisingly my gear looked all unscathed. I still don't know if I flew or rag dolled or slid.

Happy to hear that your gear did itís job and kept you from serious injury.

As for the bike, Iím sure that will buff right out and itíll be good as new!

Personally, I do not think that just buffing will work. It may also take a little touch up paint.


HEY , sorry to see you loose the bike, but they are mass produced and replaceable.


As for you, you are not mass produced and it is good to hear that you came away from it with only the injuries that you described.


Quite sure that another bike will be in your future. Thing to look out for is another IDIOT DRIVER . As their are many more out there.


Wishing you a quick recovery ..............

Wow, an incredible way to dissect a Ninja 300 in a couple seconds. Very glad to hear you are doing alright. Incredible that the cowling got annihilated, but the handle bars and RAM mount and stuff survived. Maybe you can sell it or any accessories that survived.

Holy Shite! Amazing you managed just a broken thumb and contusions: it sounds as if you consciously directed the path of your impact away from the passenger area of the car, saving others from real injury (heroic) and unconsciously held on to the bike in a death grip w/your knees and hands (great rider skill). Getting torn off the bike upon impact strained all the muscles in your groin area, chest and shoulders. Your iron grip is pro'lly what also broke your thumb. My conjectures are based on a similar experience and similar injuries. We are all so relieved you'll soon be 100%, proud of the work you did in self preservation and in your sharing attitude. We are looking forward to the next chapter of your story. Cheers mate, have a drink on me. :^)
