  1. G'day to all,

    Yesterday I was riding in the Mt Donna Buang area when I had a minor accident. Whilst in a corner I discovered (very late) that there was a piece of dark, rotten wood lying on the road. I lifted the bike slightly and managed to avoid it, but unfortunately ran out of road. I touched the edge and she slipped out from under me and we both landed on the side of the road in the mud. All is okay with me, apart from a sore knee but the bike sustained a few injuries. I've cracked the right fairing, lost the front indicator, bent the rear brake lever and scratched the right-hand exhaust.

    This all happed whilst riding very sedately and could of ended up being allot worse if I had of collected the wood and ended up dropping on the road. I count myself very lucky. But as a result I may not joining you guys on a twisties ride over the w/e. depends on the bike and the knee.

    Take care guys.
