So today I had my first crash since getting my learners about a month ago. Was going down the Monash freeway, approaching bourke st. It was pissing down (and in hindsight I should've taken public transport because I don't have any wet weather gear!!! lol) and I see a truck in the lane to the right of me. I noticed it indicate to go into my lane so I hang back, but he cancels it, I wait a bit then move forward. Then I see the indicator again so I wait again. Nothing. I wait for about 20 seconds then decide to accelerate, then I notice he moves over into my lane, I grab the front brakes and before I knew it I was sliding across the freeway. Luckily I was only doing about 60km/h and I had my full gear on, so I only walked away with a bit of rashed knee and sore hip. My kevlars only had a small tear in the knee, same as my leather jacket. The bike was surprisingly good too (I hope!) the indicator broke off, right fairing were slightly cracked and scratched. I had everyone around me stop, thankfully, as I was in the 2nd inner lane. So I picked my bike up and walked it over to the shoulder where I had a whole lot of people asking if I was okay, including the truck driver. I was pretty shaken up but I managed to calm down and continue my ride to work. I got the drivers details but I know it was my stupidity which put me in that situation, so I don't see the need to contact him further. Definitely is an eye opener how quickly things can go to sh!t.
