****ing 100m from home. Doing a right hand turn into a T intersection, from the top of the T into the base of the T (if that makes sense), a dreaded Barina was coming up the base of the T towards the intersection. I didn't see any indicator on, but I can't be sure. Either way I assumed they would stop at the give way sign (seeing as the road they were turning into is usually very busy, especially around 5-5:30pm), or at least stay in their lane. I was wrong. Diagram: http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/2986/sake.png It's quite a narrow street that I was turning into, and people park along either side, so usually you end up driving down the middle of the road if you're in a car. People don't park close to the intersection though, so there's no reason to be in the middle of the road when you come to the give way sign. Unless you're a Barina driver I guess. She apparently didn't see me, or thought I wasn't planning to turn, despite my indicator being on. Maybe she just didn't care, I won't pretend I understand the female Barina-driver's mind. Either way, she pulled out without pausing at the give way sign, and I was forced to swerve out of my cornering line to avoid her. My diagram probably doesn't show this very well, but I was quite committed to the turn at this stage, and ended up facing pretty much directly towards the gutter at the corner of the intersection, with about 1.5m to spare. First thing that came to my mind was how solid the person living on the corner's brick fence looked. I tried to get back into a proper turn, but failed because I suck. Ended up managing to pull the bike around enough so as not to hit the gutter head on, but did end up getting the front wheel sucked down into the little gutter dip thing, slid along the gutter, ending with me falling over to my left. Barina-driver, at this stage stopped halfway through her right turn in the middle of the road after slamming on the brakes (lucky she did this or I might not be talking to you now), looked around and saw me on the ground pinned under the bike, made eye contact with me, and drove off. ****ing. biatch. Damage was limited to 1-2 scratches along the front left fairing, and the indicator pulled off by it's impact with the dirt - luckily we've had some rain the past few days and it was soft enough to just pull it off the stalk, rather than smashing it. Should be able to rewire/reattach it by myself. End rant. tl;dr - people are assholes and i suck.
