    Jeez, scary stuff. And in the rain, too. It could have been worse if he wasn't travelling with such a good distance, hey.
    Hope he's okay. My hubby hit a roo once, and he sure as hell came off second best.

    This is not...um...your week, is it?
    Nope, doesn't seem to be! Not going to mention the other things that could go wrong... Murphy has come after me enough!

    I'm so glad that Hubby is a safe rider, he's a safe driver, but even more concerned with safety with the bike.

    Roos suck, they're so dangerous, particularly when they just suddenly hop straight in front of the cars!

    Seeing the aftermath of a roo colliding with a bike is horrible.

    Yeah, there are days when i wonder if that's what happened to my husband's brain-cells.

    Seriously, so glad the damage is minor and easily fixable, Angela. After laughing at him for riding in the rain, now I feel bad too! Yep, Murphy's Law.

    Gee Angela, your hubby was lucky to walk away, I'm so glad that he did. Poor bloke's probably going to feel sore tomorrow.

    I see too many motorbike accidents on my road, and too many bike riders get killed each year. It's a popular route for the weekend warriors, they go way too fast and come up to corners too quickly. On the other hand I love watching the Harley groups putter past when I'm out the front.

    I knew something was up! Cindy (in my siggy) has been trying to take off for the last half an hour, so I've been having to dash out and get her back in.....thought I'd check the radar and sure enough there are storms around. Guess she's spending the rest of the afternoon locked in my bedroom.

    Jeez, wish you could send the thunder down to me - I love it. That is the one thing I miss here, thunder, lightning and storms.

    Oh please don't say it's going to rain again. My elderly mother got flooded out over the weekend, the water board had to pump out her place, put large fans on to dry everything out. The carpet was cut away but they didn't move her huge furniture just cut around it WTF.
    Now it's in the hands of the insurance company. She is going crazy trying to sort this all out which in turn is sending me crazy trying to help her out. Is it happy hour yet?

    I think the only reason he walked away is because of the way he rides. He's one of the safest people I know on the roads. He leaves double distance between himself and any cars, same with trucks. He never speeds - he goes to track days to speed around on bikes, and he always makes sure he knows what's going on around him. I dread to think of the call I would have received if he wasn't safe on the bike.

    I hope it is all sorted out soon for you and your mother. Why would they just cut around the furniture? Just too lazy?

    No Angela. I have been here nearly 8, going on 9 years now, and in all that time I've probably seen lightning twice.

    In Qld we used to get the lightning, great rolls of thunder and storms, and I do like storms. My mother used to be petrified of them, so here in Tassie that is the one thing she doesn't miss! Lol.
