Has anyone heard from "Lost it"?

He last contacted us several weeks ago saying that he had forgotten his password. I reset his password and emailed him a new, temporary, password to his email address of record. We havent heard from him since.

He is an active poster and had been busy sorting his Silverwing. It seems odd that he would stop posting mid project. Hope all is well.

I was a little surprised that Lost it didn't offer his wealth of knowledge on my 'drive belt contamination' topic earlier this week. I hope all is well with him too and that he reappears soon.

Ah well... Here is the news...

Two weeks ago last Thursday I was T boned by a Black BMW as I was crossing a left side T junction on a main road, he pulled out to turn right (we drive on the left over here) across two lanes of traffic and was looking the wrong way. So he drove into me, I almost stopped, and if I hadn't tried to stop my onboard camera suggests he might have just missed me. But he didn't. So about 2 tonne of moving mass of BMW hit my ankle...
So where the Femur turns into an ankle, the impact broke that knuckle. You kind of get a "burning sensation" when a bone breaks for those that don't know, and I had that. Very low speed actually, I braked, he hit, I managed to keep the bike upright and then I didn't when it went to the left, so I "rolled off", the gear lever hit my boot, the boot took the impact and split but 1/4 tonne of bike doesn't land gently. And my foot is broke... Hottest day in the UK but I'm wearing my boots, Kevlar padded jeans and a "Aerotec" jacket so I'm hot but protected.

So I'm laid on the floor, first thing I think is "Well, the tilt switch works, the engine has stopped"...and I close my eyes whilst I'm checking what is hurting that wasn't before. I hear someone say I've passed out, and tell her no I haven't, I'm just checking what is "new" hurting as I have cancer and parts of me hurt all the time, and she bursts into tears poor lass.

I took my hat off, (it's scraped, not thumped) and took my boot off to check my leg isn't bleeding, and I watched two people pick my bike up, wheel it to the side of the road and lay it down on it's side again, so I jump up, hobble to my bike and say to them, "Please help me stand it up (because I know what will happen if I don't pick it up) and they say "It's heavy" so I pick it up myself and kick the side stand down. Surprising what you can do when you are in shock...

So. After making sure my bike didn't finish up dragged off to some pound somewhere and me finishing up with a battle and a huge bill to get it back, the ambulance crew checked me out.. I can still move my ankle but it is hurting, it's swelling quite a bit, and the crew ask me if I want taking in to hospital, I ask them (after they have checked my heart rate, quite high no surprise there and BP which is normal) and I ask them if there's any need, and as long as I sign off and someone collects me they are ok.
Well. I'm 3 miles away from home, so I call wifey, usual hysterics because she's been watching my progress on the phone tracker and I haven't moved for 1/2 an hour... I move the bike again (PC couldn't move my bike, twice my size, I guess it's what you are used to?)
And I finally get in contact with a mate who will help me get the bike home.
Insurance details are sorted by the Police, I get home, console my daughter, jump in my van and go collect my bike.
The VFR, as you have probably guessed.
And I get home, hot and cold, go to the walk in NHS centre and they tell me it's too swollen to X ray, so I do my own treatment, cold compress, warm bath, pain killers etc. And go to work the next day in my Lexus RX.
It hurts, but not much, then it cracks and I almost pass out, feel sick, so I go home early... I'm the boss, it's ok.
Then last week I finally get it Xrayed, and they can't tell if it's just soft tissue or a break, but the treatment is the same. So I have a "walking boot" that I have to keep adjusting as my foot swells or it goes down.

But I still couldn't get on here for some reason, only if I use Microsoft Edge as I just found out...
And yesterday I got a letter from the BMW drivers insurance, he's admitted full liability. So now it's going to go to my solicitor and let them do the job. White Dalton. They specialise in motorcycle claims so I'll use them.
Still using the Lexus, and still turning up at work every day.
Fun never stops.

Ouch!

Good to hear that you aren't mutilated. I suppose that the folding & stapling will happen soon enough though.

Glad to have you back on the forum.

Was T-boned myself whilst going around a roundabout some years ago. The guy was looking straight ahead as he entered the roundabout, the car bumper crushed my left foot and I knackered my left shoulder as I fell to the road and tumbled along the tarmac for while. Hardly any damage to the bike though (CX650 ED Eurosport).

A speedy recovery I hope. Stick to the SW but don't hang up your riding boots if you can help it.

Lost It,I'm glad you are not in the worse of condition and able to move around. I broke my collar bone back in 1965 crashing into a graveyard. I didn't realized the bone was broken until I raised my right arm and heard a clinking noise ,but no pain until about five hours later after doctor reset it. Glad you're back.

Glad to hear you are doing as good as can be expected Lost It. I sure don't want to go through what you've just gone through. I've only broken one bone and that was my middle toe on my right foot. The doctor taped it to the toe next to it and told me to have a nice day.

I've only been in one cycle accident and that was way back when I was a lot younger in my 20's. A car made a left turn in front of me in town. I was only doing about 30 mph and was able to slow down enough to not hurt me or the bike much but I did bounce over his hood. Helmet and leather jacket saved me from any injuries.
