  1. Was goin up Murchison gap the first right hander a car was on the wrong side of the road. I pulled the bike up and went straight just missed a roadside marker and ended up in the ditch.All i can say is thank goodness for ABS brakes without em i'd be slidin on me ass! No damage to the bike but i've got a krakn bruise on me shin.

  11. Glad you are OK itchinitchin My memory of that corner is the next one up in a downwards direction is a decreasing radius corner. It catches a lot of people out because they go in to hot and then it tightens up, they end up going wide.

    A reminder for us all that use that road.
