Heading home about an hour/half ago and traffic was heavyish... A light shower had just passed so roads were damp. Traveling south on Warrandyte Rd, stopped due to a car turning right two cars ahead into a side street just past Wonga Rd in Ringwood and giving way to oncoming traffic. Only gentle braking was required as we wern't going fast at all. Young bloke in a Holden Rodeo obviously not 100% on the ball, skidded into the back of me hitting the back of left exhaust pipe pushing me forward. I always leave space ahead but I was pushed hard enough to hit the car ahead but lucky, as I was in the right wheel track, I managed to manouvre my bike to the right of the car right in front between him and on coming traffic without falling. I ended up in front of the car that was ahead of me... Could have been a lot worst if I'd fallen to the right or ended up in front of oncoming traffic but the survival instincts kicked in and I suppose it's a good end result. Also could have been different if he would have hit the bike directly into the back wheel and a lot harder.. My thoughts when stopping, after my thankfulness of being fine, was that the bike had a bit of damage. Apart from the back of the stock exhaust pushed in a bit, no other visual damage and riding it home felt no different which is good is a good start and shouldn't stop me from riding it.... I'm really amazed there's not a lot more damage as it felt hard enough to cause more. Another driver who saw the whole thing also stopped, made sure I was ok and gave me his name and number should I need a witness.. Hopefully should be sorted out ok as it's all fairly straight forward. Had a good look when I got home and really can't believe the minimal damage. He has a broken right indicator.. Obvioulsy I'll still be taking it to get checked over and yes I want it fixed no matter how minor the damage.
