wind in Melbourne

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by raven, Nov 14, 2006.

  1. Watch the winds in Melbourne tomorrow.
    Tonight on the way home I copped a serious wind gust that hit me just as I was in a turn....With the damp road and the bike leaned over, it pushed the rear-end out and the rear wheel "spun up" and caused me to powerslide and drift unexpectantly!...It was alot more than just the usual pushing and shoving from wind gusts...there are some serious gusts mixed in with the rest...

  2. i was riding along the freeway tonight on my way home and the wind was so gusty, was pushing me side to side. and the rain didnt help at all, ended up getting in the left lane and slowing down.,
  3. It was pretty bad in certain parts of the Island too. Got shoved about every now and then with the odd, very strong wind gust.

    Be careful everyone. I'm leaving the bike in the carport tomorrow.
