Hi all. Today it happened. I was turning right in a round-about near home and was nearly through when a woman coming from the opposite direction pulled out in front of me when I was about 3-4m away. I was doing about 15k/h leaning into the corner slightly and instinctively grabbed a handful of front brake. The next thing I knew I was on the road in the middle of the round-about with the bike on my right ankle. The woman had kept on going and I didn't see her again. Fortunately the other cars in the round-about saw what happened and stopped in time so I didn't get run over. A man and woman came running over and asked if I was ok. I was a bit stunned and lay there for a few seconds taking a mental note of my condition. There didn't seem to be too much pain so I didn't think I had actually broken anything but I couldn't get my leg out from under the bike. Being face down on the road makes it a bit difficult to lift something off the back of your leg. The man helped me lift the bike and I wheeled it off the round-about to the footpath. He had to put the stand down for me as I was a little wonky on my feet. They were still asking if I was okay and I lifted my leg and swivelled my foot and said "If I can do this I don't think anything is broken". It was a bit difficult walking as I am pretty sure I had sprained my ankle. I pulled off my boot and checked the ankle and there were no contusions. The people checked again that I was okay and I told them that I had just got off my restrictions and I was glad I had not yet got a new bike. He said that we was picking up his new bike tomorrow and that he also rides a Yamaharley Virago. It was good to know that there are lots of us around and that there was a connection between us. The bike started after a few tries and making sure it was in neutral. I was able to continue on my way after that. When I got to my destination (mums) I checked the ankle and it had swollen up quite a bit and I was able to put some ice on it for a couple of hours. Mum strapped my ankle for me and helped me on with my gear. Inspection showed that there was no damage to my jacket, draggins or helmet so it was not a bad off. My ankle will recover, I hope in time for the GP this weekend. I analysed what happened later and I realised that when the bike is turning and on a lean into a corner that stopping the front wheel by using the front brake is a really good way to make the bike slide out from under you. Using the back brake would have been a better idea but with a car 3-4 m in front of me I didn't have time to think and my instinct hadn't been trained to us the rear brake. I guess it was better to have the bike slide out from under me than run into the car.
