Riding along in the horrendous wind last night about 6pm on Springvale road heading towards the Frankston turn off, I was having terrible trouble trying to control my bike in the wind. I deiced to move from the right lane to the left cause I was worried I was going to get knocked into a car. I was comfortably sitting on about 60kms down from 80kms just past the water ways entrance when 2 huge gusts of wind came in and knocked me from the left side in the left lane to the middle (yes I know I should be in the right side of the hand, but I was worried about hitting the gutter in the wind). Was trying to get back over to the left when another came in another from the right and I was pushed out of the lane into the soon ending turning lane. I could see the road ending so I applied the brakes lightly hoping to slow down and stop in the grass when my back tire locked up on the loose gravel from the road and spun my bike towards to right. I remember looking down at my bike thinking "well f**K" as I was traveling further into the long grass. Next thing I know I hit the ground head first for a bounce of my head and was sliding left from my bike back towards the edge of the road. Saw the grass sliding along under my visor and then the the chunks of gravel before I stopped about a foot before the white line of the road. I was lucky it was busy and 4 maybe 5 cars stopped to make sure I was ok. One lady was screaming a bit hysterically until I managed to sit up from the ground. They helped me pull my visor up and asked if I was ok. Apparently the first thing I said was about my phone, as it was in my left pocket and I slide on my left side. Thankfully my shiny new Iphone 4 was perfectly ok lol. A few people humored with me about the phone trying to keep me calm. They made me keep my helmet on for about 20 mins. There was an off duty cop who pulled over to check things were ok and told some people to leave cause their cars were parked badly and holding up more traffic. A couple of the gentlemen helped me and the bike up. The fairing on the left side are broken in about 4 places and split. The damage is repairable and the frame work of the bike is perfectly ok. I was lucky one of the guys who had stopped after the accident had a friend coming our way with a ute and was nice enough to take my bike to a friends house for me so we can fix it before taking it home. I'm pretty shaken up about the whole thing. However am thanking my lucky stars that I am alive. My housemate drove me to the hospital at about 7.30 after we made sure my bike was being taken care of by my other friend who came to the scene. We worked out all the other possible outcomes of what could have happened and thankfully had I slowed down before being knocked out of my lane, when I was sliding along the road I may have slide back onto the road and been run over. I saw about 6 riders go by while we were getting things sorted after the accident. Hi btw if any of you are on here! To those that stopped and helped out, Thank you! Even though you won't see this So all in all, $200 for a new helmet, Replacing of fairings at a later date as they are repairable and I am still learning to ride. A concussion, sore neck and shoulders, some bruisers and my life. I will however need to learn how to ride in the wind as I was trying to steer not go with it which is why I was having so much trouble. Will be the first thing I do when I get back on when we get my baby fixed. They always say you will be guaranteed to come off once in your life riding. Hopefully this will be the only time for me.
