Clipped my 1st mirror in 15+years BUT...

  1. But not just any mirror........ Mr Plods LH mirror :shock:
    Talk about the earth wanting to open up and swallow me :oops:

    Monash freeway this morning on the way to work there was two of us "filtering" in different lanes. I know Mr Plod saw the other bike on his RHS because he moved over to let him go through easyier .... BUT in doing so he reduced my gap :? so I got though, but with the slightest of tap between our mirrors.
    Naturaly I stopped instantly and waited till he could creep forward to me and dropped his passenger side window, Yes I was waiting to cop an ear bashing at the very least.
    But NO
    Good cop story
    He asked if I had any damage, "nope didn't even knock it out of alignment officer"
    "Ok alls good then, take care and watch out for the forecast rain and wind later on today"
    then he gave me the "thumbs up" and put his window back up, I slipped into 1st and made a discrete exit, trying to minimize any look at my rego as i pulled away [ just in case ] :LOL: :twisted:

    I would have loved to see the looks of glee from the surrounding cages turn to WTF he just let him go ! :LOL: :LOL:
