Accident 1/ My son while driving recently side swipes a motorbike rider by changing lanes on canterbury rd, causing the rider to hit the gutter and crash.The rider has minor injuries thank god but the bikes a write off.I said to my bloke what are doing? and he said he answered his mobile and then swerved left to stop and talk.FFS.I gave him a swift kick in the arse for that.To top it of my young bloke has 3rd party insurance with an excess of $2500 to make a claim.Guess who's going to have to pay this + the neg driving fine Accident 2 /Mate at works son crashed his bike on a major road recently and writes his bike off. His in hospital with broken ribs , spleen and broken lung & liver. Single vehicle accident, cause unknown.Riding normal one minute, down the next :?: . Accident 3 / I'm driving south while at work not long ago and came across a motorbike acco where i later read in the tele the rider did'nt make it. landcruiser,truck and motorbike don't mix. Accident 4 /Recently while at work at parramatta a bloke is riding down victoria rd, the rider is travelling on the inside lane and then a bloody lady decides to make a right hand turn straight into him.Bang ,straight over the car he goes and then rushed off to hospital.He should be right. My wifes best friend works at westmead emergency and she commented to us that there is a definite increase with incoming motorbike accident patients. After thinking about these accidents and seeing it and knowing people who are personally involved,i wonder if this is a message or its time to hang up the boots, get out while the goings good.There has to be a bloody solution to this mess.Too many people are crashing ,at fault or not. Anyway, fcuk all the doom i'm off too katoomba for a cool evening spin, full noise .You never know when your numbers up so i'll make the best of it while i can I sincerely wish everybody here a safe ride.
