Hi Bike Riders new and old! Just thought I would let you all know about my recent motorbike accident! I am a Learner rider, and was on a Hyosung Comet GT250 Naked. 2 weeks ago I was riding home from work, when I was struck by a cab driver doing an illegal u-turn across 4 lanes of traffic and 2 tram tracks. He T-Boned me on my left hand side directly front on his bonnet. He was not looking and thus did not see me riding in a straight line at 20km/h when he hit me. He was only looking at the traffic on the other side of the road. Basically it was unavoidable from my point of view. Luckily I walked away with just a busted knee. My Hornee Kevlar lined jeans, Helmet, Thor boots and Motorbike jacket saved me from even the smallest scratch! Unfortunately my motorbike is a write off, I still have a very swollen knee and been off work for 2 weeks. No amount of practice could have prevented me from being hit by the Cab. Now I have the hassle of all the waiting, $$$, paper work, physio, looking for a new bike, insurance, TAC etc. It has not deterred me from riding and I plan on getting back out on the bike as soon as I physically can, and then going for my full license. I just got to get a new helmet and bike which takes time and money! But yeah, just thought I would share my first accident on the motorbike as a learner rider, and how wearing the right gear got me off a hell of a lot better than if I was in casual clothes! Oh and if anyone is selling a Hyosung 250 let me know!
