To the guy that pulled over this morning and stopped traffic in two lanes on the westgate freeway out near Laverton whilst I got my bike to the side of the road, incase you're on the netrider site thank you. You were a saint! What caused this..... Well, I had my first accident today. Decided to get a bit friendly with the car infront of me on the westgate freeway. Traffic was crawling, tried to move into the gap in the right hand lane, looked back from my head-check and hello stationary traffic. My first decent stoppie. Unfortunately aided by the bumperbar of the vehicle infront. I landed on the tank first (ouch, my intestines!) after doing what probably looked like an impersonation of a fraggle and then ended up on the ground. Not a scratch on me, just some internal bruising. Driver of the vehicle helped me pick up the bike. The individual who helped me, being a rider himself, had already pulled up his car by the time I got off the ground. He helped me start the bike again and bent out my gear lever for me and stayed with my whilst I got my head together before I took off again. Asked me how long I'd been riding and gave me some tips for future reference. The 10 minutes of your time that you spared for me saved me several hours and much dispair that I probably would have suffered if I had not been able to ride my bike afterwards. I've pulled up 4 times in the last two weeks to try and assist other bikes I've seen stopped at the side of the road, it's nice to see other riders looking out for each other.
