Thought I would go for a ride today, being a nice sunny day which is rare at the moment. Went for a quick cruise around my neighbourhood and was on my way home. I was on Burwood Hwy in the left of a 4 lane rd with one lane for turning right, the left you can either go straight or turn left. I was wanting to go straight but the lanes to the right were so far backed up I figured the left would move faster. Unfortunately that was not the case as I sit behind an RACV van while traffic on the right slowly goes by. The van then starts reversing. My thought process was as follows: 1. Reverse lights. wtf? 2. Oh **** i better do something 3. Escape options? cant go left/right around it or backwards 4. Oh yeah the horn, oh too late So down goes my bike. I get straight up and knock on his window, I think it is only now he sees me. After some wtf comments he is nice and gives details. There was a car in front of him with hazards on who was blocking access to turn left, he was clearly trying to go around. Infact while he was giving me details, the girl in the broken car came up and asked him to fix her car lol. I am now debating whether or not to go through insurance for this. I'm leaning towards going through insurance but there is minimal damage (some scrapes on fairings and pegs) but there was some damage already there on the other side of the nose, anyone know how they deal with existing damage?
