On my way to work today, I heard on the radio that there had been an accident between a bike and a car. Then on my way home today I saw an accident involving a bike on the Nepean Hwy (I hope it was noone here in either of those). I thought to myself (1) that I hope the rider was OK, (2) that the bike wasn't too badly damaged and (3) I will need some good leathers when I get a bike! Point of this post is, I know accidents happen. I just want to be prepared incase it ever happens to me, safety first. What sh*ts me is that also on my way home today, in the great weather, I was overtaken in an 80 zone (I was going the limit), pretty quickly by a bike, rider in t-shirt, loose jeans and sneakers... with a pillion in a t-shirt, shorts and thongs! Does anyone have any comments here! Please tell me it wasn't one of you!
