NSW Old Road north bound

Discussion in 'Hazardous Road Condition Reports' at netrider.net.au started by Ruckus, Mar 23, 2016.

  1. One lane blocked off north bound just before Brooklyn bridge.

    Firies onsite now.

    Bike caught on fire.

  2. not your's, I hope???
    • Agree Agree x 1
  3. Fortunately not I but a BMW S1000RR.

    The rider had a puncture in the fuel tank and leaking, when I got there the bike was in the grassy area. Bike in flames, the frame was destroyed.

    All cleared up now.

    We were waving traffic to slow down but barely anyone showed interest. One lady locked up the front, laid the bike down just before the on fire BMW and fire truck.
  4. Was the rider OK? I would imagine that having the bike catch fire between your legs would be more than a little unsettling.

  5. I didn't speak to the rider but others did. He was ok.
  6. That's good to hear.
