The details of the crash will forever be known only by the motorcyclists…
What I can tell you is that I was going does hill fast- about 40mpj- and they were probabably coming up at the same sleep so a whack at 80mph (fast when just wearing Lycra)
My bike stayed on the bend and so did I, so it was as though I just shot straight UP and came down again, landing on on COMPLETELY obliterated helmet
That must have ‘folded’ me and broke me ?
I hear trat first on the scene were Dickon and Q who had resist my pleading for an hour to be turned from face down.
They tried to distract me with anecdotes, no doubt Dickon nice clean music industry Catherine Jenkins type stuff and Q talk of beer and strippers Life in a wheelchair was never mentioned, the I was saying I couldn’t feel my legs.
A van came with a strtcher, followed soon by tha ambulance heli which whisked me away to Toulon Military Hospital.
I think Roy spent mont it that ‘early’ time with me, as a bloody good mate and French speaker.
It would seem I have surrounded myself with men and women of rich and varied talent.
Frankly, looking at them , you’d never know 🙂
