I have been riding since November last year, and as of about a month ago, felt confident enough in myself to tackle some mountains :grin: the nearest being the Oxley Highway, between Walcha and Ginger' Creek. It is an absolutely phenomenal road, but both times I have been down there, the rider I have been riding with has crashed The first time, my mate binned his GSX-R 750 K6 and escaped unscathed but doing 4 - 5 grand damage to the bike. The second, Friday, resulted in another mate being air lifted to Tamworth Base Hospital, and writing off his bike. Both times I have let the person I was riding with go ahead, allowing myself to tackle it at my own pace... only to go around a corner and find them in the gutter. Both riders were 'Oxley Virgins' when they crashed, my question is am I cursed? or just bad luck that I have a 100% crash ratio???
