Traveling down High St Armadale today around 3pm. It's rather busy, cars both in front and behind me. I'm doing about 25-30km/h, traffic moving at a steady pace. All of a sudden a chick walks out from behind parked cars straight into my path, not wanting to hit her I swerve and hit the tram tracks in the process. There was little I could do - front slid out underneath and both the bike and myself hit the deck and slid for a few meters. Leg hurts like all hell from being pinned under the bike, bit of a sore back too, but no broken bones or anything. Full Dainese racing suit saved my a$$. The bike itself has scratchings to the left side fairing, front indicator snapped off, clutch lever bent. Taking it in for an assessment on weds - hopefully most of the damage can be fixed easily. The chick who caused it didn't even stop walking, just buggered off. Thanks to the nice gentlemen in the car behind who got out and helped lift the bike off me and get me back on my feet. Things learnt; Always wear your gear, it does work, it will save your skin. Also, even when traveling at low speeds and doing everything right things can go bad, stay ever vigilant.
