Well... along the lines of Sobils "some riders shouldn't have a licence"... I'm to add to that... Accident # 3: :roll: Was just cruising with a few people around the hills, was on the way back to BB's place when a right hander got the better of me.... came off the side of the road upright as per last time (see my recent "[TIP]" thread) and was ok... saw a ditch running on the side of the road, and very suprised to cross that with only a little trouble.... Then came the real trouble... the concrete pipes and basins for the rain to cross under the road... SMACK into it, thought my forks were f%^&ed for sure... (all the while i was thinking, i dont need this before NSW trip tomorrow)... and as it went smack, there was a tank slap and the front wheel landed wrongly on the road. I low-sided... a bit dazed i saw my bike was no threat to the road traffic and just walked to the embankment and sat there, head/helmet in hands ... So off to Hospital i went with scrapes on my knee and a gouge off my elbow... and I was wearing my gear too, unlike that bloke who went past later not wearing any protective gear at all... and No, they didn't wire brush me . Damage to the bike: right mirror, right front indicator, ANOTHER screen, and scrapes all down the (now cracked) fairing and can. Thanks to Elenor and G for picking up my bike and Brian for riding it in its condition, to Jarah for making sure i was alright, and BB for driving me everywhere Yes, it was good i was riding with so many people. Needless to say I wont be heading to NSW tomorrow on the bike, just later in the car. So, Flipper, I'll have some bits for HQ this time . PS. I'm too stuborn to let the road get the better of me, so I'll repair and keep on ridin'
