Has anyone got any tips on knowing when it's probably not a good idea to take the Westgate Bridge? As an L plater I've only recently started using it. I left from the city tonight westbound and it didn't seem too windy. I got to the bridge and saw that it was 60km and thought there was roadwork. WRONG! It was high winds and I couldn't see the wind sacks from further back. I was in the far left lane with a north wind and on my little 250 got blown across into the emergency lane and just managed to pull back in time not to make acquaintance with the railing. I'd rather not do that again! Any telltale signs that people usually use would be greatly appreciated! I've heard that on a bigger/heavier bike you wouldn't notice it as much also, does it make that much difference?
