Well I was heading to Geelong to visit family (pre birthday dinner) and I managed to get hit by a car. *joy* to me.. I was in the merging lane going onto the Westgate at about 10-20km/h when I felt a bump and next thing I know I'm falling to the ground. The lady behind me comes out going "Oh my god, I'm sorry! I wasn't watching. It's my fault, I'm sorry" etc etc. From what I can work out seems she wasn't watching in front of her and just ran up the back of me. Anyway, I look at the bike, not too damaged, bent gear peg and cluth lever a bit scratched. I say to her "we're holding up traffic, let's move to the emergency lane". I wait for a car to pass and then push my bike into the emergency lane. *boom* I look over and the woman has taken off and kept going. I didn't catch her rego plate or anything :evil: Lesson learnt. Make sure I get car rego plate before doing anything else. I didn't expect the *beep* of a person to take off after we had that little talk about her being in the wrong etc etc. Stuffed up my trip to Geelong, didn't want to ride along the Princess with a bent gear peg and whatever else. I'm home a few hours later, relaxed and I've fixed the gear peg. Bike is ok, I'm ok. Makes me want to kick something when I think about it. There, I've had my whinge. *shakes fist in fury* About the best thing to come out of this is I think there was more damage to her bumper than to my bike.
