In an unfortunate turn of events, my exciting Friday turned into a disaster; I had my first crash. I was riding along St Kilda Road on the way to a meeting with a client, bright and early (11am) yesterday morning. For those who know St Kilda Road, I was riding in the centre part of the road when a car suddenly decides to turn into the lanes on the left of the median strip. I admit I was at fault and made a very poor judgement but I assumed that the car would turn into the gap on the median strip so I only lightly applied my brakes. Unfortunately my judgement sucked and the car stopped in the middle of the road and didn't go into the space provided to give way. In my attempt to come to an emergency stop I felt I couldn't make it so I lifted my bike into a stoppie hoping I could push myself from hitting the car as I only needed that extra few metres to completely stop. It stopped me from flying onto his car but my bike is now locked away in the garage until I can find time to put her back together. (unrelated) My day only got worse from there on: I missed the first meeting. I was late to the second meeting I ran into my girlfriends ex and had to wait 5 mins for our friends to stop talking to each other whilst we stood around each other awkwardly I had to drive into the city traffic Seeing as I drove, I couldn't drink at Eve where my friend had his 21st (drinks provided) I met the guy my girlfriend lost her virginity too The ATM at Eve withdrew $100 but didn't dispense it My mobile died halfway through the night Fortunately, the guy I hit has a motorbike license as well and is very chill with the whole situation. His is doing his best to find the cheapest solution for me to fix his car so I can refrain for claiming it with insurance.
