I was riding to work this morning, about halfway through my trip when I stopped at lights on the inside of a double turning lane for a right-hand turn (cnr Blackburn and Wellington rd). Started through the turn alright and into second gear when suddenly the three cars in front of me come to an abrupt stop at the end of the turn and well of course in hindsight "don't brake on a corner" is the perfect practice, but the gut reaction kicked in and I low-sided into the bitumen. Ouch! Thank goodness for the gear, ended up with a graze to my right elbow (I think a friction burn from the padding in my jacket), a very sore and swollen left thumb and a bent indicator, rear brake lever and scratched mirror to the bike. A big thanks to the fellow rider on the Blue Honda 600 Hornet for helping me out and making sure I was okay, Sorry, I didn't catch his name.
