Let me set the scene: Bike konks while heading outbound on the Western Ring road and I'm left with no option but to pullover on the inner most lane of 3 lanes, next to to a concrete barrier while still being in the lane, unable to make it across to the emergency lane. Cars coming by were given only maybe a hundred or so metres to spot and avoid me - I had semi trailers swoosh by only half a metre from my leg. I was shit scared! I eventually got off my bike and made a phone call to RACV roadside assist and they sorted me out with a toe truck and what not. In the time waiting for the truck to pick me up I had 2 good samaritans offer their help. I would like to use this thread to thank those people. First man: Dale? (forgot name). He said he was the president of the Victorian Motorcycle Riders Club or something to that effect. Pulled over and offered advice regarding potential problems and then gave me a red bull. The Police: 2 female officers parked in emergency lane with lights flaring to warn drivers and eventually stopped traffic for me to move my bike across to the emergency lane. Dan: Sparky by trade and former motorcyclists, so he tells me. He pulled over, offered me some fuel which wasn't needed, and then proceeded to play around with some components and got it going for long enough so I vould get home safely. He also tailed me to make sure I'd be okay and diverted traffic when it konked out again. I would like to thank all the people who helped me out today. If you've had someone help you, share it.
