.. on my first freaking day riding. .. in my own frigging street. Or maybe I can believe it... The story.. my street has a section near the middle where it's only one lane, to limit traffic.. but a few driveways empty out around it.. so Im cruising back down my street, and up onto the middle section, and I see this guy backing out.. and of course in my cager-trained-mind I just keep on rolling on toward him, assuming he's seen me. Yeah assumptions. Got closer, closer and he just keeps backing out, until I finally realised he hadn't see a thing, so I switch to the left side of the space and rolled on through as he continues to back out and almost nip my bike. I should have stopped. I should have realised/seen it earlier. Anyway, went past a bit further, indicated, pulled over, and got off the bike. I stood there looking back, and he came out of the single lande area, did a u turn and went back through it the other way. Hehe. But yeah, so much to learn, so much riding to do. Thought I'd share my first day (part of it anyway).
