Hey all, Had a really crappy ending to my day yesterday, The good part, am doing my third year block release, Spraypainting Apprenticeship. Learned how to do candy flames, was an awesome day. The bad part, Riding home from Tafe, just after 4 pm, really crappy weather, windy and rain, first real rain in Brisbane for ages. Came over the crest of a hill not far from home, to see a white commodore coming at me in my lane, the car was broadsided, I went left to go around the car, not sure what happened next, then I was on the road on my back, sliding on the wet road, ended up laying in the gutter on my back. Heaps of poeple stopped to assist, a nurse that lives in my street helped lots, she was on her way home too. Then ambos showed up, neck braced, and taken to hospital. Released last night, nothing broken, but I hurt like hell, typing one had is harder than I thought, Left shoulder took the brunt of the fall to the road, not much movement that does not hurt lots, and somehow have strange bruise and graze on my right shin, bruised on my right wrist, and my ribs hurt a lot, bruised up the left side as well. My jacket survived, relatively unmarked, have not taken out the body armour to check it, helmet has minor damage, did not have my gloves on, they where wet from the ride to tafe yesterday morning, supprisingly not a mark on my hands. Not sure what shape my poor FireBlade is in, she got towed, and I can't get over there to have a look. but given the oil that was on my jacket and pants, that leaked out of my bike and ran down the road to where I was laying, I guess my baby is in a bad way. Insert rant here, Am p!ssed off, was going slow, due to crappy weather, was alert for oil and stuff on the road from the storm, and this f!cking happens. F!cking idiot driver. End rant. Will be buying a lotto ticket, when I can get a lift to the shops, lol. Peace all, Chris.
