Here is more fuel to the fire re 4WDs Just riding home, doing the speed limit up Burwood Hwy in the far left lane. Out of the corner of my eye see a gold (what is it with metallic paints and motorbike ignorance?) 4WD doing a rather fast U turn. Assumed that he would go into right lane. Wrong! He keep coming into the left. All I could see when I grabbed a handful of everything I could was a wall of gold. Clipped his rear bumper bar and hit the bitcumen. The transition from upright to sliding down the road is certainly a fast one. As I was in peak hour, very lucky I did not get run over. Bike is just cosmetic damage, I think my oggy nobs helped in that department (but believe me his insurance company is going to pay for every scrap of it). I was just shaken and have a few scrapes, bruises, sore ribs and am in need of a chiropractor. Have been analyising the situation in my mind. Is there something else I should have done? Oh well I suppose I will never know. Although one of the guys who saw the accident who is a rider said to me you just had no where else to go. Could have been a very nasty T bone incident. Be careful out there!
