I ended up in hospital with a punctured lung, ruptured spleen, multiple **** ribs and concussion. The bike went straight to the junk yard.

That blows.  I might take pot shots at kangaroos if I were you.  I was lucky to escape that moose without a scrape, but when you're going fast enough, anything large enough to cause a crash is deadly.

Interesting fact for you American brothers...'kangaroo' is Aboriginal for 'don't understand', and budgerigar is Aboriginal for 'good to eat'. Truly.

I didn't know what a 'buderigar' is in any language! :-\  I looked it up; in America we call 'em parakeets.
