Sunday St Valentines Day was cruising down Flinders St at 6.18pm. Doing 55 km. Clearly a green light. Just a meters from the white lines of the pedestrian crossing. Girl on her mobile just steps out right in front of me not even turning to glance for traffic. I swerve to the right but clipped her. I thought I smashed into her really hard. I went down hard and slid for about 15 meters before coming to a stop. Lots of people rushed over to help me out. I was more worried that the girl was going to be a really bad shape but she was ok. Not injured enough to stick around. Some guy who also stayed to help me took down her name and number but it turns out the number doesn't work. I was carted off to Royal Melbourne with a bad shoulder and generally sore right side. I was wearing my Dainese mesh jacket which had hard elbow and shoulders pads as well as back protector. Shoulder and lower arms and the back were given the ashpalt treatment. Side of my draggin camos a bit damaged but can go for another day. Right glove gone. Toe guard on boots scrapped quite a bit. Helmet fine. I ended up with a torn ligament in my shoulder. Bike is written off. Jacket is gone. Fully insured. Gear was difference between walking away with slight injury and staying in hospital for days. Thanks Alley, for nothing. I will get a pay out and get a white 2010 ZX6R. Lesson I have learnt. When coming to a crossing and you see people ready to cross. Slow right down. Move to the right track. Because you never know when someone is going to step out.
