So I’m following my normal routine 6am Im on Heatherton road heading to Monash Freeway, its a little cool this morning but I’m rugged up well so ehh. No issues along Monash and I take my usual exit at Alexander Ave right at St Georges road on to Alexander Ave. Continue along cross punt road approaching the Botanical Gardens speed slows to 50.Which I’m always doing, cause those who know the area know there are two pedestrian crossings along the way and it isn’t always easy to spot the darting runners and walkers so I’m always watching. I’ve got a two car gap from the vehicle in front and there’s a good gap behind me as we approach the lights and bridge at Olympic boulevard, I’m about 100 metres from the lights can’t remember if they were red or green but I notice a vehicle parked off to left, again I can’t remember if he had indicator on, but I remember lights were and thinking to myself watch out. Cars pass the vehicle including the one immediately in front of me as I get close the car on the left suddenly launches into the u-turn. I hit the brakes and swerve to the right, thinking he will stop I will get around him or stop. I do remember reading somewhere (on here I think) if you have to hit a car hit the boot or the bonnet. Funny what you remember. I also remember thinking the road was free of oncoming traffic so that’s something; I don’t remember hitting the horn I’m just trying to stay upright. Then all of a sudden I’m on the road, I guess I ran out of turning space / speed or whatever. My head hits the road and my first thought is that didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would, my right arm is under me I can feel some pain but nothing too bad. I didn’t slide much and within seconds I can hear people yelling out are you ok, call an ambulance & suddenly there’s people everywhere rushing to help. Good thing about all those runners and fitness types plenty of help. I start to get up and some says stay down, are you ok i say something don’t know what whilst I head to the side thinking get off the road. Others have got the bike up and off to the side. I sit down and start a better check of myself, my right arm is sore but everything is moving ok no real pain, no pain from the head region. I look up and there’s a paramedic in front of me, apparently He was travelling in the car behind and was on his way to work. He asks if I’m ok any pain, I say yes I’m ok my right arm is a bit sore but that’s about it. He says it’s good you were able to get up and move do you think you can take your jacket and helmet off. I do and he says im going to check your neck and back tell me if there’s any pain, he presses down my neck and spine no pain I say. That’s good he says, checks my arm and everything else says everything appears to be fine, but get yourself checked out by your own doctor to be sure. He asks me if someone can come get me I say I’m fine I will check bike to see if it can be ridden or not and go from there. The driver approaches and apologises says he didn’t see me it’s all my (drivers) fault he writes his details out No licence to check but I wasn’t to fussed at this stage. Since called and they’re correct and he’s happy to ensure bikes fixed with or without insurance. Sat down for five or so called work told them I wouldn’t be in checked bike no leaks no major damage, muffler scratched, brake lever scratched . Try starting bike no luck turn off back on yes its in neutral try again no luck hmmm after another minute suddenly remember to check kill switch Doh bike now starts. Gear has done well right arm of leather jacket has some scratches down it but otherwise good my RST jeans are good to no tears or rips. No major damage to helmet so I figure I’m good to go. As Im riding back home I notice the handle bars aren’t quite right, bike is riding ok just not straight? so instead of heading home I decide to drop bike off at 60 degrees to get the once over. Whilst there I make an appointment for the doctors. Looking back at it, I think if I was maybe in centre or left of centre maybe he would have seen me? As I was travelling closer to the right wheel track, and I probably have to increase my distance between cars, two car lengths might be good in my car but not so good on the bike.
