Post Slapped & Kicked 
 
The following link is the clip I posted on Facebook ..

How it happened ..

Me ..
Left lane of double lanes 50mtr from lights {red} ..
Right lane .. stopped at lights, SUV then a tradies Navara tray back ute with a big arse tradies canopy .. 'that I couldn't see fuck all around it' ..
Turning onto Anzac Ave from Bunnings, a Patrol 4x4 ute with tradies racks carrying several sheets of MDF wall panel {3000x1200x9mm} clamped at the front & strapped down {one at mid point & the other at rear}, he turns onto Anzac Ave just before lights turn green ..
As I cross the lights doing about 35 - 40 k's, still in left lane {about to end .. two lanes into one} traffic gaining speed .. I have caught up to the Navara ute, which is in the right lane about 2 m in front of me ..
then the SUV suddenly swerves back over left onto the shoulder [near hit the curb], I though "what the fuck ??" as I ready & touch brakes ..
THEN the Navara locks it up & cuts/swings straight over in front of me & stops dead .. again I think ..
"what the fuck ?? YOU COCKHEAD !!"
An instant after I a see a flash of creamy tan colour, I felt a SOLID full whack to my mid-back right side ..
Now learning over left & looking at the road due to {what ever it was that hit me} & under hard braking, I see another flash of the previous seen creamy tan colour .. & once again .. I find myself thinking ..
"WHAT THE FUCK ??"
Next thing I'm laying on my left side on the road .. wondering/thinking ..
FAARRK .. what the fuck just happened & what the fuck hit me ??
Faarrk .. I'm winded .. so I do the self assess routine while I waited for the windedness to subside .. which I ended up needing to stand & lift my arms to make my lungs move .. hard to do with several people telling me to lay down & don't move .. & being winded like fuck .. it was rather frustrating to not being able to communicate that to them ..
How it happened ..
The clamp holding the sheets had broken allowing the wind under the topsheet which caused it to lift up snap at the midstrap .. it then cut the strap ..
That piece flipped over the SUV & hit the right side windscreen pillar which caused the panel to flip down the length of the ute vertically until it reached the back & where I was ..
The second half of the sheet slipped out, which is the one the SUV swerved to avoid {he didn't see the first sheet flip over him}, it then was ran over by the Navara {who didn't see it, [was concentrating on 'trying' to avoid the first half] but heard a bang underneath just after the first half hit the pillar}, the second half then was shot out from under the Navara {it hit my rear tyre first} .. & to have a board come between the road & your tyres {especially when you are learning over left & under hard braking} changes the whole tracktion, G force, velocity & gravity preamiters on riding to a more shit hitting the fan result .. ..
as the lady who was behind me & seen it all unfold .. said
"It come down the utes side then just swatted you like a flyswat then the other piece shoot out from under the ute & kicked the bike out from under you" .
Had Xrays done .. no visible breaks or fractures .. but I can feel the soft organs {lungs, diaphragm, liver, spleen & right kidney} have being badly bruised ..
My Bike .. about $6000 of damage .. unstripped at the moment ..
Me .. sore & rather imobile .. the worst is hic-uping .. feels like a double fisted punch to the inside of my lower ribs which leaves me winded for about 30 or so seconds .. but it is slowly lessening in severity ..

Glad all is ok!! Thats why the fines for not securing your load are so tough, and should well be!
I was rinding down the Burringbah range and caught up to a tray back (its 80&90 kms limit) and a dick has a 44 gallon drum bouncing around in the back! Just pulled over and gave him 10 minutes distance, dont think me and the missus would be to good being hit by a bouncing 44!

Thank guys ..

My Bike is currently at Darling Down Harley .. Shannons is all over it, they had the claim in the very same afternoon ..

I was wanting to do the work myself ..
but that would mean I lose the lifetime guarantee on the repairs {part of my insurance policy with Shannons} ..

I rode My Bike to #3 Son's place [several k's] after she went down {reminded me of when I was a kid & had came a good gutsa & had to ride a bent & broke bike back to the homestead} .. it rode straight & true .. so it seems that it is mainly just the bolt on items that need replacing .. {finger crossed}

Mate, I'm so sorry to hear but I guess those items got jealous of a real workhorse. Mend well and soon.

  Geez Rx mate! Could have been really nasty. Glad you are semi-OK.

Rest up. The world will carry on fine while you recover for a couple of weeks

Wow Rxe, that's not good mate.

Good to hear you weren't seriously hurt, shows you can do everything right and still come unstuck due to others.

Your lucky Rxes.
Glad your ok.
Some people get very complacent with gear in the rear of utes and trailers.
No doubt the cops would have been all over it.

Glad to hear you're ok Rx! Bike can be fixed ay. Lucky Jen wasnt on the back!
Saw the same thing happen a few days ago.1/2 a sheet of 10mm plywood flying through the air off the back of a ute. Back 1/2 still secured against the tailgate and back of the cab. Front half overhanging the cab was obviously unsecured and snapped with a bit of wind under it. Luckily we were about 5 cars back. Hopefully you and bike will be recovered, repaired and back on the road soon.

Glad to hear you are ok.  Hopefully Shannons will repair it and not write it off.  I have a box of bits, footpegs etc that you are welcome to if needed.  Cheers
