I hesitate to post things like this where I frack up and nearly die due to my own pure stupidity, because the public flogging is sometimes quite harsh from you frackers. But, I'll post it - maybe someone else will read it and give them pause when in the same situation. Heading to the shop on Friday to pick up the GT, it was about 3pm. I had just got on the bike, was riding up Elizabeth street about here, heading south (the direction of the camera). My head was most definitely in the fracking clouds. In the second lane, there were two buses, stopped at the red light ahead. In the third lane, stopped just behind the buses with a giant empty lane in front, was a taxi. I think he was jacking off. There was nothing in front of him. So, I pass the taxi, into the third lane. There was a bit of a gap between the two buses, about where the side street was on the left. Did I see anything as I headed up behind the buses? No, empty lane to the left, empty lane to the right. Lights still red, so I'm heading towards the intersection doing something like 40 or so, getting ready to stop. Car flies out of the side street, in front of the second bus and slams its brakes on when it sees me in the third lane. If it had kept going I would have hit it with no shadow of a doubt, and it would have been messy. I owe my life to a fracking tool trying to turn right across a busy 4 lane road that he couldn't see down in front of a bus. This has been filed in my bag of situations to avoid. If you see a gap, between buses, cars might actually appear from there! Who knew? I didn't. I do now. Frack's sake. Oh, and the real fracking shame of the entire thing was that I wasn't fracking recording because I was so excited about new bike that I fracking left it turned off. Frack my life.
