    Looks like the journey is over....

    Just a quickie from Hotel Alpine at Abbattabad, Pakistan.

    Looks like our journey is over. Yesterday we set off from here and then 10km down the road a twat in a car turned across our paths to do a U turn. So sudden, no warning. Sue didn't have time to brake and hit him head on in the passenger door. I swerved a little but collided with his rear end and careered across the road into the metal work of a bridge. Both bikes are unbelievably ridable but Sue was taken to the hospital complex here at Abbattabad with a compound fracture of the right upper arm. She's spent the night there, I'm going now to see how things are, but the hospital is a shit tip and the first need is to get her out of there and on a plane home asap.

    Once Sue on her way I can sort the bikes out, one way or another.

    The driver then drove off but was later arrested by the police. We now have to contend with ALL his relatives wanting to sit at Sue's bedside bringing gifts of tissues, water, orange, cushions etc.

    I'll send more as soon as possible... need to get Sue outa there and sorted.

    Catchya later folks

    Glad you are both OK.

    Sorry to hear this Micky. Hopefully Sue's full recovery is likely.

    Just ask if you need help from this end.

    I hope Sue gets better soon and more importantly... out of there. How are you Micky after colliding with the metal work?

    Micky and Sue - another one here stood in the "miles away, feeling useless, but very concerned by your news" que.

    Good luck with all you need to do.

    Best wishes to Sue for a speedy recovery and safe journey home. Hopefully you can get everything else sorted easily enough Micky.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.
