I should have taken pictures of the bruises from my 2003 crash. There was a very clear handlebar mark diagonally across my torso. Showing all of it would have qualified as NSFW, I'm afraid. Only Mrs B saw the full extent.

I've just had to take a course of antibiotics because my elbow injury was still wet
a week later and still leaking what looked like stewed apples and custard.

I don' t have any relevant pics of me on t'internet atm, but here's the damage to the car, my helmet and my bike.

Going opposite ways along the main road in the back of shot, me going downhill.  Driver decides to turn right onto the side road.


Note this is cracked, not crushed.

Mr Bunbury- that looks like claret stains on the helmet!

Loafer- Ye Gods, painful looking. Hope he's OK now.

Those were actually from 2005, I just hadn't got round to putting them on here before!  I had to take a year out of university but I'm (amazingly) all fine now, thanks for the concern.

Loafer, Ouch!  GWS to whoever he is.

Both painful looking. The poor bloke with the facial is going to get worse for a little while, as things swell up even more. Eating could be a problem. Ouch!

Positively tame compared to most of these, but still stinging...
