So anyone in sydney today knows how hard its raining. Before I had even pulled out of the drive area of where I work I had hit so many puddles my feet felt like I had been jumping in em like a kid (got wet weather gear for everything else). So about 5 minutes later I'm riding down a residential street, about 40 meters ahead of me is a car. Street was really dark, parked cars lining each side of the road, its pretty wide so I was buffering to the right since there was no incoming traffic. Suddenly, with headlights off, no indicators on, this ****ing moron pulls out of his spot straight in to performing a U turn ... shit I kick straight in to emergency braking, my front and rear wheels start shaking to buggery, horn blaring, then my rear wheel starts to slide out. Needless to say I'm scared shitless. The guy driving the car stops ... right in front of me, across the lane like a deer caught in the head lights. The bike finally stops, I would say with in about a meter off the car. At this point my thumbs still on the horn and my visor which was cracked open for defogging has completely fogged up cause if the expletives I'm throwing at the driver. I don't know if they tried to apologize or anything, with all the rain and the fogged up visor I can't say, but for some reason they were in a real hurry to get out of there. Anyway composed my self, lifted my visor up and wiped the condensation off it and rode the rest of the way home incident free. God only knows what would have happened if a car or some heavier vehicle was behind me. I can only assume that the driver didn't see me and had decided he was going to pull out once the car in front of me had gone past. Anyway I'm home safe and sound now with my feet in front of the heater. All things considered that's a damn good outcome.
