    Brad, Trials, Woodsman...Thanks for the kind wishes chaps.
    When we finally got her home late Friday night she had a lot of cuts and bruises and was badly shaken up.
    Yesterday she was still in a lot of pain so we took her to A&E to have a CT scan. All injuries seem to be muscular so should heal on their own.
    One of the witnesses took these pics.

    Yikes, good thing the truck was empty, that looks like a cage for hauling propane cylinders.

    Bruised, battered and having the crap scared out of you isn't great but it's about as good as it gets in a crash between a car and a delivery truck. As Trials said thank goodness he wasn't carrying a load. Really glad to hear that time not Doctors will get her up and going again. You can tell her we feel for her, bruised and battered from the road is something most old bikers can relate too. Hope she is out and about soon.

    Relatively good news stevo. Glad she will be ok. At least she has her youth to help work though the healing process. I imagine you are wishing it was the good old days when you could take that driver, put him in that caged trailer and park it in the town square.... or maybe in the Colne.

    Hopefully he'll get to share a cell with a lonely sheep farmer.

    Reminds me of an interview with Conrad Black during his incarceration. "what's the hardest thing about being in prison?" answer: "sleeping alone". My nearly 100 yr old mother who has lost her filter says.... he should consider himself lucky that he is sleeping alone!

    Replaced the float valve and seat, when started only running on one cylinder...Jeez.
    No fuel getting through to the front carb, so carbs off again. The new float valve seemed to be sticking, no idea why tho.
    Running well enough now, MOT passed, and out for a test ride this morning

    Sorry I can't look at it, all the green grass and leaves is depressing.

    How's your daughter feeling, she up and at it again?
