Hey Gang As most of you may know, I started my 'life on two wheels' as winter begun. So I am pretty familiar with riding in the wet etc.. I have never come off ( touch wood ) thanks to the advice I received here from alot of you regarding wet weather riding and what do look out for. Today, on my way to work I encountered something I havent seen before. Travelling on the new Dandenong By-Pass, I stopped at Hammond Rd Lights to see the wet road ( was still raining ) 'bleeding' this white stuff which floated to the top of the water and was running off along the road. Was almost like a milky-soapy looking substance.. very sudsy :? I was like WTF???? :? :? First thought was perhaps the line markings were getting a wash-off... but it didnt look like it was coming from anywhere near the new lines. I saw more of it as I rode on. Needless to say, I steered clear of it. Perhaps Joel could shed some light?
