I guess it had to happen some time, and today was the day; Travelling to work in the rain this morning around 6:30am turned left off Narre North Rd and headed up Wellington Rd towards Rowville. Two slow moving trucks doing around 15kph and struggling to get up the hill in the left hand lane so myself and the Magna behind me took the right hand lane to overtake .. and that's when it all went wrong. The bastard second truck pulled into the right hand lane to overtake the first truck, and left me with no where to go on a wet slippery oil soaked piece of shitty road. I was braking and sliding towards the arse of the truck and finished up putting the bike down and spinning up the road on my left hand side. bike = fairing, bars, pegs, topbox Me = dislocated thumb, sore knee and skin missing from the elbow. Truck = didn't stop the bastard Good News = engine, frame & tank all good. I've had time to have a bit of a think about it and on reflection, it may have been my lucky day, was I riding to the conditions .. probably not. . There is a ditch running beside the road too and if I had of spun off into that I could have been ejected off the bike and into the scrubbery or something more solid. I did get a chance to look at that road while I was waiting for the rescue trailer, and it is abso"bloody"lutely covered in oil. Looks like I will be getting to know my bike a little better during the repair process. bugger of a way to start the day though.
