There I was minding my own business all of a sudden these tram tracks jumped out of nowhere and wet themselves.. Sorry all, it's another rider down thread. I feel like a right idiot because of it too. I lost it along the tram tracks on the corner of High St and St Kilda Rd last night. I was on my way to get some toothpaste so I decided to go for ride instead of cross the road to the convenience store. I was travelling up Queens Rd then turned left onto High St in St Kilda. I filtered through the traffic and just as I got to the front, the lights go green and I accelerated briskly. As I did, I ended up between the tracks and wanted to stay away from them. So what did I do? I fixated on 'not' crossing the track in a parallel kinda way by doing just that. I can't remember if the front gave way or the rear but I ended up sliding maybe 15metres down High St. It felt longer but could have been a lot shorter. Was scared as hell, seeing the bike sliding down the road sparks going off and thinking the car behind me is going to run over the top of me. My 250 Ninja is stuffed. It wont start and was bleeding some of castrols finest when I left it at friends apartment block. Special thanks to the scooter rider and Merc driver for showing their concern and helping me out. Also thanks to A* leather jacket and Dragging jeans for saving my skin, as well as Motorola for when the Dragging jeans disapeared. Part of my phone was grounded away. Well I manage to get toothpaste when I got back, from across the road. So depressed!
