here's why i shouldn't have bothered to fix my bike: I had an accident last night, in which I was doing some wrong things, but the other guy was still at fault. I'm not expecting sympathy, nor a lecture for the things I was doing wrong. Just telling you a story, in full, and honestly wether the wrong or right things. Firstly, some facts: The scene was attended by fire, ambulance, and police, (police called by me) I am on a restricted licence, I got fined $113 for carrying a pillion. I got fined $332 and lost my (restricted, that I've had for 5 days ), licence for 6 months for blowing 0.078. So the 0.00 on restricted thing is wrong. So that settles some arguments on here. We were only moving the bike 100m, neither of us were wearing helmets (stupid, and +1 for the wear them even if you're going to the shops brigade!!!) Yes I learnt a lesson here and we both consider ourselves very lucky boys P plate driver will be getting the following: Leaving the scene of an accident. Dangerous driving. Failing to stop at a red light. Was not around to get breath tested, even though he was also drunk by the admission of his friends. Now for the story Took off on King St from footpath adjacent to Bourke St? Stopped at red light facing south at the ligths Lt Bke St, slightly over the thick white line. We heard that uncomfy screech behind us, turned around, I tried to ride sideways and out of the way, but we were still impacted from the rear at a speed witnesses guess about 40km/h. My pillion managed to land on his feet to the side of the impact, while I was thrown over the handlebars, onto my feet, but then unfortunately the car pushed the bike on to the top of my left ankle and pinned it, throwing me forwards on my back. Everyone was really good and came straight over to check we were ok.... most people were screaming OH MY GOD while we stood shocked in the middle of the intersection, then moved the bike. Approximately 70-100 people saw this!!! (It was King St bouncers came over and all). As the car pulled over to exchange details, 3 male asians got out and one female. He was quite happy to say he was at fault, let's just leave and sort it tomorrow. Then it went wrong. 3 carloads of asians pulled over, got out, and surrounded me and the pillion, shouting, F*** YOU MAN, NO HELMETS, BETTER GET A LAWYER, YOU WEREN'T INDICATING!!! (To which I replied, dude it's no right turn and I was stopped at the lights, indicator wasn't needed, and SEVERAL, rather large drunken aussies started yelling, helmets a seperate thing idiot, you're f****, you ran the red, we all saw it, YOU get a lawyer. At which point several of the asians started to take on a threatening demeanour, (without being racist I ain't messin' with asians in the city). I didn't get his number, we have each others names and addresses though, and after exchanging details, a mate of his snatched up his front bumper and plate, put it in his car and dissappeared. He said let's sort it tomorrow, how's your bike, I went over, it was f****, turned around, he's gone too. Plenty of witnesses, bouncers, and patrons, and severa stayed around for the police: who then weren't interested because only one bloke had a partial plate, so he was the closest to a "qualified witness". Now I made an error by not getting anyones numbers for insurance purposes, so I might be screwed. In summary, I stuffed up, glad me and my pillion are ok.
