Riding home in the Bus lane, church st, heading west out of parramatta. traffic is start/stop in the two other lanes of traffic, enjoying the freedom of a lane to myself, at the speed limit - 60km/h then this all happens in the blink of an eye approaching driveway entry to the Tollgate Hotel / Bottle-O, blue ute suddenly decides to hang a 90-degree left, drive across my lane and into the pub driveway, no indicator, nothing, nada. road was wet, hit the front and rear brakes and clutch simultaneously. rear brake instantly locks up (maybe a combination of new tyres, new brake pads and wet roads), and the rear end of the bike is drifting out from underneath me - feels like i'm sliding sideways. i'm holding the steering dead on, most surreal feeling i've ever had. release rear but keep pressure on front brake. try to gear down and engine brake to assist. get back on the rear but really lightly. looking at the situation (funny how everything slows right down) couldn't see any other option than to hit him, but then notice the car that was behind the ute in queue had not moved forward to take the vacant space, get off the brakes aim for the gap, get on the throttle to get some movement. success. pulled the manouevre off and swerved around his rear end and back into the empty bus lane. chance a glance at his rear view + side mirror...he was paying attention to anything but the alcohol specials up on the wall of the pub. ride off pissed, but happy me and the bike stayed up and without a scratch. was only wearing helmet and gloves at the time. no "safety" jacket, pants, boots.
