Hi guys, Wasn't sure where to post this but this thread is to talk about the durability of motorcycle gear. So I usually commute to & from work. I'm a postie at Australia Post & I sort/deliver the mail. I was on the first half of my round delivering mail & I made a sharp turn on the electric pushbike to enter another street that was part of my round. Only thing is that I was free-rolling at the moment as well as applying the front brake slightly while turning, which helped the presence of dirt & debris on the road that was shadowed by tree branches to throw my front wheel out of control & result in me sliding off the bike towards the left side for a good 3 metres until I hit the island. I had my kevlar jeans & motorcycle boots on at the time. Boots are Alpinestars SMX-1 & jeans are Draggin Cargo's. I'm fine with only soft tissue bruises. Bicycle has its handlebars out of alignment. Got myself checked with the doctor & here I am writing this with a day off work tomorrow. Cheers.
