so happy this wasn't my K .
started yesterday off with a bang.
my first job for the day after getting to work was in our transfer van .
whilst negotiating a sweeping bend , in a 70kmh zone , an 8 wheel rigid tipper needed to use our side of the road to avoid running up the rear of other traffic which were all travelling toward us. we T boned him unfortunately. luckily we were on our way to a job and not yet loaded.
my co driver suffered minor fractures and bruising  and spent the night in hospital.
I came out of it with some minor aches and pains, hopefully it won't affect the pleasure of riding too much. time will tell.
looking forward to a ride next weekend , heading out to the Cessnock swap meet.

Seriously lucky mate, glad you are both ok.
From what I've seen touring on the K, we are all just one idiot away from nirvana, no matter how much care you take.

the crumple zone ,  it crumpled.  and the Airbags ....... I would have been best to bring my own party balloons and fill them up.
thanks Bert and RT, the Adrenalin was pumping but not as much as a good ride.

Glad you are OK mate. Just shows how easy it is to happen. I have had similar things happen twice and one of them I came out the worse for it.
Most air bags don't deploy if your impact is more than 10° of straight on because you are likely to roll off the bag as it comes out and end up worse off than without it. Unless there is side curtain and side seat air bags then the angle will extend to max 20°.
By the looks of it the left side wore more of the impact than the right so it was probably more than 10°.

all thoughts are most welcomed and appreciated.thanks.

Rick , we hit the truck broadside , the truck was at a 45 degree angle across our bow as we struck it.

and as you can see by the angle of the axle , we threw our best upper cut to his mid section. those tyres were well and truly smokin' just before impact.

45° will be why the air bags didn't go off. At that angle they can do more harm than good, you're going sideways already and they come out and throw you further sideways.

Bloody hell Ed!! I just got on here for the first time in a couple of days, certainly not the sort of post we want to see.

Best wishes to you both in regard to recovery. Will be in touch later in the week re the swap meet.

Cheers
