    Reminds me of the time I answered a phone call from a Local Rock Radio Station & asked to guess the "Song" title & name of the band of the just played toon.

    For a $1,000. Drum rooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooll. Nope, never even heard it let alone could name it. I mean c'mon.

    I should have realised that many of my contemporaries would have been listening, they being younger than me. Isn't everybody?

    Got the crap taken out of me for weeks but it was all in good fun. Or I think it was. Bastards !

    Diver/James it turns out your accident is so common it actually has a name/acronym SMIDSY "In many of these crashes the driver will say they simply didnít see the motorcycle until it was too late. (Sorry Mate I Didnít See You Ė SMIDSY). Protection from other drivers (SMIDSY) - Motorcycle Council of NSW - Road Safety

    From the radio interview it sounds like you are a marvel of modern medicine.

    Obviously most accidents have different causes but one does wonder whether the colour of M/C protective clothing causes them. ie, Black. It seems only recently that Jackets & Pants have sections of Red stitched into them. Cool, but still not very conspicuous at the speeds they do. More an appearance/fashion thing. One does see the occasional Yellow Hi-Viz over the leathers. I wonder how they fare?

    Maybe someone could come up with jackets including LED Disco Chaser lights stitched around the edges Nightrider style. Switch on the ignition & you start flashing all over. No not that sort of flashing, although I reckon some riders would find that alluring.

    Of course I am jesting but who knows?

    When Diver goes a'riding out with the lads he could get fed up with smart arses saying "Well, hello Sailor"

    Funny mate. At 16 I was in Sydney. Returned from a weeks leave to be invited by two girls I knew to come to a "PARTY" it was the mardi gras. Watching with out a clue I did mention I thought some of the cool parade seem to be men dresses as women to the mirth of the two girls I was with. I am not in the least homophobic, I was a big little country boy who had never seen anything like the show. It was funny and happily laughed at myself when finally informed what was going on.
    After the mardi gras parade the girls who were 18 took me to a pub on Oxford st. They both went to the loo together asking me to hold their hand bags I do know a few HELLO Sailors Not my choice or game.
