Hey, I just thought i'd let you in on what happened to me on my work down the SE Freeway in Melb this morning at approx 10am. I along with everyone were stuck behind a group of trucks doing the speed limit (plus 10 percent on occassions). There was a car infront of me and no opportunity to lane split, so I stayed behind the car. In the emergency lane was a sheet of 5 ply, approx 1meter square. As the truck drove past, The board was picked it up in its slip stream and hurdled behind (no fault of the truck driver). Fortunately for me, but not the tin top, it hit the car on the drivers side door. All i got was a shower of spliters and wood chips. To his credit he did not panic and kept going until he could merge left and inspect the damage (a nice dint and respary on both doors). The moral here (besides buying a Tatts ticket) is you have to be ever vigilant when riding, as anything can be kicked up in your way, and they can hurt. Trust me I've been hit by a piece of railway balast while going under a bridge and you don't want to know what was said under my helmet let alone the size bruise. For those who decide to ride in the emergency lane, you may want to think twice, as all the crap on the road does end up there. Cheers.
