Yep...the electrical tape blue CB is no more. Not even more electrical tape can save it now. Parked it in town late last night, hopped off and had gotten about 20 ft down the road when I heard a loud bang followed by screeching brakes, another very loud bang and the sound of my CB skittering down the road. Turned around to see a stunned looking little redheaded girl at the wheel of an old Laser up on the curb and my bike about 10 feet down the road gayly ablaze. Turns out she'd clipped one of those stupid bits of concrete curbing they've been putting on the far side of the pedestrian crossings and it pretty much completely took out her front wheel, collapsed the suspension and bent everything...and my bike was unlucky enough to be where she ended up. It got poleaxed into the curb by the looks of things, rupturing the tank and pouring petrol over hot exhausts. The CB is done for and I'd say the Laser is a goner too. She was very shaken but fortunately no real harm done. I've been looking at those bits of curbing for years and thinking that one of these days someone is going to do that not to mention that someone is going to hit one of them with their head after coming off a bike and there will be little bits of brain all over the place. A helmet isn't going to save you from a sharp pointed corner of concrete. On the plus side....got her number.
