Hey all, I have just finished 3 and a bit months of great riding and put 1000kms on my new CBF. Monday night however I had my first and hopefully final off I was heading down a two lane (each direction) road, I was in the right lane as there were parked cars in the left. Now I have just gone throught an intersection when a P plater in a car parked on the left decides that it is time to do a U turn. Of course... I see this and put the brakes on.... hard... the rear wheel is on the limit of braking and the front has been sqeezed on as much as I could. But this was not enough.... I land up hitting the back right of car and go over the handle bars. Of course... I had all my gear on plus a back pack and I land on my rights sholder blade area and roll in such a way that I roll onto my feet and am standing in the middle of the road. I get my bike up and move it to the side of the road and have 2 witnesses waiting to give me thier details already (one of them is a bike rider who was walking past... top bloke ) Driver runs over totally in shock and really sorry about it all.... and tell me he has insurance and is really sorry. I'm just glad I was in one peice. Police and abmo come to check this out and the evening ends with my bike being towed. I couldn't ride it as the forks were bent and the brakes stuck on a semi engaged position. Headlight was also pointing somewhere into the sky. Front brake lever was also bent down too far to be able to ride it. My injuries were just bruises ontop of my thighs from the handle bars and inside of my left leg from the tank. Some how have a bruised rib on the right side too. Full gear is great... didn't feel a thing when I hit the road So now I play the waiting game and look for a new bike.
