Hi this Denzil's daughter (Denzilina? ), he just wanted me to check in here to let you all know that he got rear ended (whilst stationary) on a set of traffic lights on the way to work yesterday. He is currently in hospital with one shattered and one cracked vertebra but had emergency surgery yesterday to stabilise the shattered one. He has a question for any of you who have suffered similar injuries - has it affected your ability to ride sports bikes and if so how? (We're a long way off this... But he knows he wants to get back on the horse some time) Sadly the 748 ended up embedded in the front of the car involved, although he hasn't seen it (was lying face down and immobile so hasn't seen it since he was on it). Police advised it was a write off but he already plans to buy it back from the insurance company (Bennetts - again, if any experience of this please let us know). I must admit I was heartbroken that it was the 748 as he has lavished it with love and attention for 12(?) years and all of my experiences as a pillion passenger have been on that bike. But I would rather have my dad safe than his bike! He is currently without his laptop so unable to answer messages himself but I will stay logged on and pass on any good wishes. I know how much he values this community.
