Considering I've been living in Melbourne for over 50 years you wouldn't think I'd need reminding about wet tram tracks. Reminded I was last night. One wrong angle saw the Blackbird and myself part company and slide gracefully to a stop in the gutter. Fortunately friction rather than solid objects ended the slide. Overnight in casualty confirmed broken rib and collarbone. Thanks to a following driver and a local resident for their help. Not sure about the bike yet. Could have been much worse all round. They're slippery, aren't they! Allan.
