Another life example of how traffic has the potential to snuff one out. Recently restored a 250cc CBR and tossed up riding that or my 600 to work. Traveling home last night on the CBR600RR, middle lane on nepean highway (In Melbourne 4 lane road heading out of the city). Im in a centre lane with traffic up the butt and on each side, all clear ahead (riding legally). As per chance there was a bus on my left flank for which I was about halfway up along side (but thankfully in the right wheel track) when all of a sudden, it decided that my lane was a better option. Opps not for me ! My options, can't brake (light truck up my jatzzy), can't swerve right and big muther comming at me. Only way out, straight ahead. twisted the wrist and almost had the arm sockets removed, but cleared the bus in just enough time! When my heart settled back down, just thought where I'd be on a 250cc that evening. Not home having a coffee. Rrgardless of how well we prepare, you can never always be master of positioning yourself on the road. This is where I really beleive that the limiting of people on smaller bikes (or even riding a scooter) is a choice that should be left to the individual, not the government.
