Ouch ... glad to hear everyone is ok.

What can you tell us about an airbag to the face? I bet that added to the excitement.

The last time somebody tried to steal my motorbike they did damage to the electrics to the point where fixing it has been put in the too hard basket ......I feel better not being on it doing 100 above the bitumen .....bugger the bike. Much safer in the hilux

That's probably a good thing.

I heard a story about a bloke who copped one to the face not long ago and ended up with a sore face and two black eyes.
Fast forward to his next accident only a short time later, he sees the collision coming, puts his forearm up to protect his face and BAM ! ... broken arm, busted nose two black eyes and a sore face.

Anyhow, I'm getting a hate on for driving Adelaide roads, there's so much impatience.

Driving to the city last week down the South Eastern Freeway, I had cars so close up my backside that I couldn't see their headlights at 110kph ... that get past just to sit up the next cars backside.

People really need to slow down, leave home with more than enough time to get to where they're going, and show a little patience towards each other.
