Sorry mate...

Bit of bad luck that, as you say, it could have been a lot worse.   From your pic, it doesn't even look icy - very hard to avoid black ice like that.

sorry to

here you had an off ice has been a bloody nightmare this last month hope you recover quickly as for the bandit id be tempted if i were you to stick twin headlights on it and just use it as a naked then if in a few months you still want to get rid you can atleast you wernt on the zzr you have alot more plastic to replace

damage

the ice was just after where the water crossed my side, i was heading through the the village so i was travelling on the near side lane, the drain was on the near side and flowed out of the drain along the kerb, then it crossed over.  where the water was flowing accross the road, it was ok, it was immediately after where cars had gone through in the night and bfore me maybe, that it was sheet ice.  I went back to have a look and it was solid ice about 1 to 2 feet away from where the water was running accross the road.  doc says I'll be ok, so im quite happy that I wasnt seriously hurt..bikes can be fixed..now thinking to go back to a land rover in winter...

Maybe....

You should take legal advice? If the council were aware of the problem I believe that would make them liable for any accidents due to the fact they haven't treated/fixed/made safe the area!


Not sure but you have pictures so maybe contact ACIC on here.........
