This is not a "rider down" piece - it's about the bad and prejudiced attitudes of second-rate journalists... A woman, 20, who was with her father in(sic) his Harley-Davidson is fighting for her life after crashing in Lygon St, Brunswick, on Saturday night. The pair were thrown into a pole after their bike clipped a taxi about 10.15pm Sounds as if it was the rider's fault - doesn't it... Eyewitness report from the MRA Board member who witnessed it! Coming down Lygon Street on the corner of Glenlyon Street at around 10:20pm, two of our party on a Harley Davidson right in front of me were travelling south at around 40-50Km/h in the left lane when a Taxi driver (without indicating or looking) suddenly went from the right lane to the left lane before the intersection to either avoid a right turning vehicle or make a left turn. He broadsided the bike and continued to push with the rider fighting it all the way, his peg scraping along the bitumen until the bike, rider and pillion struck a power pole on the corner. The Taxi accelerated through the intersection as the rider and pillion were crunched and the spinning bike flung across behind him.
