It finally happen, finally left an imprint on a Sydney taxi :grin: All seriousness I got knock off (gently, no bike damage, no injuries) my bike by a taxi at around 12:30am this morning. It happen on Sussex St where it is 3 lanes one way, the taxi turned into the hotel (can't remember the name) from the middle lane !!! . . yes, middle lane !!! I hit the anchors (geeez, those Brembos are fantastic !!) and ever so gently dinged his rear 3/4 panel. My handle bars made contact, and elbow making the imprint. I dropped the bike and had my first sensation at kissing metal ! :grin: I dropped the bike on its side. The hotel concierge quickly ran up to me to assist me and some hotel guests also assisted in seeing if i was okay. The cabbie came out and started abusing me ! I let out telling him that he changed from the middle lane, the spanish blood came out again because apparently I nudged him on the chest. The next took me by surprise . . . The occupants of the cab came to my defence and gave the cabbie a mouthful telling him that he changed from the middle lane, and get this . . . told him they aren't paying for the fare !! hahahah. Two ladies walking by also saw it all, and also said it was the cabbies fault for the same reason. The hotel bellboy/concierge also gave a blasting and commented on my bike ! LOL . . . because I was not concern for my being and was more concern about whether my bike was okay ! LOL, typical Duc rider, more concern about whether the bike is scratched ! Anyway, during all the arguing, I told told everyone i was okay. Others there were telling to see a doctor and call the police and stuff. By this stage the cabbie felt pretty low and generally accepted his fault. He was apologetic when i told him, "mate, this time i won't sue the ass off you, my bike it okay, i'm okay . . but next time check your mirrors" . . . . and i rode off. You guys are probably thinking . . why ??? did i just ride off ??? Well, the time line for the night was . . . 40min ago, i'd finished smooching with a work colleague , i've been having lite beer all night and gave myself a good 1-2hrs since the last drink. We had been walking around the quay and stuff - so my mind was else where and i think the afterwork friday drinks was somehow to blame. . . . I put her in a cab, she had other ideas but I had the Duc in the city and did not want to leave it, and i have a busy saturday planned. Also, i could not see going through the hassles of getting back at a cabbie where there is no damage to the bike and i'm okay. I think I gave the hotel guests a bit of entertainment though. Its not every night they see a stunt show !
