At the Snail's send off show last night he presented me with an old pic outside the original GT Rider bar An injured GT rider with a full leg plaster. Not a broken leg, but one with 100+ stitches from getting clipped by an orange crush tour bus (on R11 north of Uttaradit). So I dug out a couple of other pix from the time. The year 1994 or 95. The bike - a beaten up Honda NV400SP Note the fuel tank sliced open - by the bus door hinge or fender? As I was catapaulted off the bike, up & over the handlebars my left leg was sliced open to the bone. I did a full 360 degree somsersault & landed in the roadside drain, sitting bolt upright, with legs out in front as if reading a book. No sliding down the road & not a mark on my body, just one hell of an “open meat sandwich” for a leg. Amazingly no broken bones either. Joe from Joes Bike Team was riding behind & saw it all. He was also first on the scene - thanks once again Joe. Anyway, unbelievably David Lek fixed up the old Honda NV400SP - better than ever & I did tens of thousands more kms on the bike. What a mechanic & reliable bike. Below: 2 Moons, David Unk, Bobby Bender, Julien.
