When I had pulled over and the lady in the car said the first rider had crashed I thought oh no. But when I was going back up the mountain and came around the bend and seen the bike pinned under the guard rail I thought the worst. I tell you I was a lot happier when I saw Paul & Saddo both on their feet. Two things in Pauls favor were no traffic & the guard rail stopping the bike going over the edge. Panadol and a rest mate. See you soon.
Shane forgot to mention that when the lady told him the first rider had crashed. He thought "That stupid bloody idiot SADDO has went over AGAIN !!. Fortunately for me and unfortunately for Paul it wasn't me. It was interesting watching it in the rear vision mirror. My initial thought was Oh Shit this is not good. But Paul completed a perfect 3 time forward roll and then up onto his feet as the bike slid into and then jammed under the rail. We extracted his bike from under the rail, straightened up the bars brushed of some of the dirt and continued to ride into Mansfield for a coffee. After the coffee Paul checked the bike over straightened a few more bits and pieces up then on our way home. Not a bad bloody effort from Paul. Paul I hope you and Jennifer fully recover.
NOTE: Shane and I were happy to go for a re-enactment and take photos. Paul wasn't so keen.
have to tell your folks i still don't know how i got out of that. i think someone up there was looking out for me. i have some good bruising but walking perfectly i would post the photos of my bruises but i've had trouble with the computer happy to sms them if someone wants to post them. by the way jennifer now is topless how to remove the screen. my lenses a fine shane, thanks for the offer of the mirrors i think i'll replace them with 2 new ones. rode her yesterday on my day off without the shield and certainly blows you around. catch up on the shepperton run. cheers.
by the way guys, thanks again for your help on that day. i don't think i would've been able to get up on my own from under the rail

george: Hi Gordon. You should post you question on the Honda Shadow Mods board in the Bike Talk area. Easier for people to reply there.
