Had my first ever lowside after 6 months of riding the other week. was in Sydney CBD turning off Goulburn St, had the green light was in midturn (10-15km/h) when a ***ing idiot ran across traffic. I hit the front brakes to avoid hitting him and off it went into a slide. the guy continued running damaged caused: rooted clutch lever and gear shifter fairing scratched and cracked and both forks and rear suspension misaligned. was in a jacket but no kevlar pants. regular jeans held up and walked away practically unscathed. when will pedestrians realise 2 wheelers CANT brake mid turn. anyway thats my vent. does anyone have any suggestions on how this can be avoided in the future ?
