  1. Was it you ???

    I felt sorry for the rider.
    On the way to work this morning was a L-plater with his bike leaned up against the concrete on the outer most lane on the city bound side of the ANZAC Br in peak hour traffic ! :( There he was holding up one of the most busiest lanes in the Sydney road network, copping heaps of abuse from drivers and also having buses glaring down on him.

    A few other riders stopped to give assistance, but he seemed to have a serious problem with the bike and cannot move it.

    What I can't figure out is that he was on the down-hill side of the bridge and surely he could have coasted it down to the wide shoulder/breakdown lane just 100m away. :?

    If it was you, you were mentioned on all radio station traffic reports ! :LOL:

  5. What? A hyosung broken down? Thats a new one! :p

    I wonder if drivers would be as abusive if it was just a car broken down.

    Something serious must have been wrong if they weren't able to push it.

  6. Maybe he was freaked out by the traffic??

  8. This always baffles me to. People have a slight bumper to bumper accident but they will stop the cars, get out and prance around in the lane for 30 minutes sorting out each others details. Why not move around the corner and clear the lane?

    Not only that, but standing on a main road is downright dangerous. The first port of call should be to get yourself out of harms way.

  12. Regardless of the make of bike, I hope that this experience doesn't turn the person off riding.

  14. It's pretty easy to imagine a stressed and panicked learner just not thinking about the option to pull in the clutch and roll it down a bit if it stopped.
