Gday all. Just thought i would post up a bit about my spill on kinglake. Reason for the hazardous report. Was going for a good old monday squirt. Decided to take chum and kinglake way home. Was going down kinglake, BIG LOG near the top of the mountain. Nearly lost it. Kept going extra slow. 5 corners later. Around a left hander was on a nice wide line, car 1/2 in my lane. Adjust my line into gravel that covered 8/10 of the lane( only parts not having gravel were two small tyre track). Hit the gravel and u know what happened next. LOW SIDE.:twisted: :twisted: Across the road with ankle stuck under bike, hit the roadside starting to go down the cliff, bike lets go and continues 20-30m down. took out a replector pole too. I ended up about 3m down the cliff, VERY VERY LUCK. So next thing i know i was up looking at my bike down the cliff. Telling u not a pretty sight. Climbed down. Not good. "how am i gonna get the bike out of here" To my luck many people stopped, some tried to call a tow truck. No luck. But for some coinidental reason, my mechanic was driving up. He stopped. Had a look. Said thats "S#$t, damn council hasn't cleaned up after the roadworks". Next think his mate comes by on a bike. He looks a says the same thing. He offers to get his 4wheel drive with a winch and a trailer to help me out. Yes please. :grin: So he come back and while my mechanic and i push the bike, he whinches us up. Was a fair effort, with lose dirt everywhere. And trailers it to my mechanics place in kinglake. And he will trailer it to mine tomorrow. Did all the Police paper work. off home i went. Ankle hurt a bit during the whole bike recovery procedure. But really started to hurt while wating for my ride home. Ended up going to the Austin, waiting 5hrs. Great people there. A++. To find that i have snapped off a chunk of my left foot fibia. So its in a cast and no work, no bike, no fun for 6weeks . and gotta track day booked in this weekend. Lucky i was wearing a full race suit, boots, back protector, or it would have been alot worse. Got a hole in my suit. Would have half a leg if i was in anything less. Another lesson. As for the bike it actually looks ok. Forks arnt bent, only think that i could see from the quick look was a broken foot peg and gear shifter,mirror and a bent subframe. Looks like its turning into a track bike. No more road riding,(well for now). All in all not a fun experience. I do not wish it on anyone. Just a reminder, be careful out there Natta.
