May even save the odd badger.
Is badger bashing a common occurrence? Imagine the biker wont come off well in a high speed badger impact. lol
It f**k happend.
Early this morning about 2 am came round a corner it ran across me and couldn't stop quick enough,
Had to abandon the bike. I'm OK bandger and Honda ....not so well

Sorry to hear of your off. Much damage?

I'm impressed you remembered this thread, it's not like it's title is about running over badgers.

Bit of damage, but I don't have time to fix it right now.
I looked it over the next morning and the hand guards smashed off, indicators hanging off and the shift levers curled in on itself like a snail, and for some strange reason the bar end that didn't hit the ground is gone. standard scratches, and I suspect the wheel alignment's out but will not know until I get a day off in Jan to properly look at it.
Found a badger tooth where I crashed but no badger so he might have got up spat out a tooth and muttered a few swear words and walked off. that or he was recycled by the foxes and crows.
