I have been riding for just 5 days now. Each day I have been riding to and from work and my confidence is slowly growing. I was riding along the Eastlink where it merges with the Frankston Fwy. I was in the RH lane keeping up with traffic and the F'stn Fwy was merging into the LH lane. Not far pass the merge, from nowhere a car pulled into my lane and kept on moving over to the RHS. I started to give him room but as he moved over so quickly I ended up onto the dirt/grass with the t-Trees just a meter or so away. I don't know how I managed to stop and keep it straight. I did most things wrong and hit the front barake on the grass, reved the engine and my feet came off the pegs. But I stopped, un-injured and no damage to the bike. Some nice lady pulled over to see if I was alright. After catching my breath after a minute or so I then had to start up and merge into the Fwy from the RHS whilst all of the cagers were doing 100Km/Hr pass me. One hell of an experience let me tell you.
