Evening all. I'm gunna dump my little stooooory on you guys 'cause if I tell The Minister for War and Finance she might revoke my grant for a two wheel license and associated benifits Ive been riding for 15 months now on ye olde gpx and today I got my first big scare. I always thought I was very aware of whats going on around me. I was cruising up Gratten St Carlton just crossed over Lygon st when I noticed a tin top stopped in the left lane, no indicators, the brake lights go out and it starts to cruise off, no probs, then without warning or indicators it starts doing a u-turn right in front of me, I hit the horn, grab a hand full of front brake, the old girl dives and somehow pulls to the right the driver stops the car and I manage to miss the front bumper by inches I think. I know a miss is good as a mile but it got me thinking, when the faeces hits the vertical impellar all that stuff that was drummed into me the day I went for my full license about emergency stopping and swerving went out the window, or the back of my pants. Me thinks me has been baptised.
