Riding home from work the other day down Fitzsimons lane (Eltham to Blackburn) I had my first experience with a 4wd merging onto me. We both turn from Main Road Montmorency into Fitzsimons lane and continue down the same road for about 2kms or so until we come to a large roundabout (corner Fitzsimons Lane and Porter St). The lead changed several times leading up the the roundabout as we were both doing similar speeds with him occasionally creeping past me in the right lane then I'll creep past on the left, so we should have known the other was there right!! Well we come to the roundabout at similar times and enter at similar times but I accelerate harder and open up a 3-4 car lead which he slowly closes as we approach the next intersection. Well this goose wants to turn left and as he's in the right lane he puts his left blinker on and slowly starts moving across, what the > nice one idiot you have a bike right next to you. I know everyone says never ride alongside cars and especially 4WDS and trucks but this guy was creeping past me and as we have shared the same road for the last 3-4 kms he must have known I was there, apparently not!!. Well luckily for me me moved across slowly giving me plenty of time to get out of his way but it did open my eyes to the fact that I should never take it for granted the vehicle next to me knows I'm there. I don't call this a near miss as it happened slowly but thought it'll be good to post as a warning we really are invisible or some drivers really are blind as bats so never assume they know you're there..
