Well boys and girls, i never thought i'd be posting up a crash story, but it happened... Bascially the jist of the story...coming down king georges road in the left lane, i saw a car in a side alley and saw lights (turns out was an unmarked cop car doin something) so i looked at it trying to work out if it was coming out and was going to hit me, then i looked back and the lights were orange and the cars in front must of saw it was a cop car so rather then filter through they all hit the brakes. i look up to see me fast approaching the car in front knowing im going to hit, slam on the front brakes, next thing i know the back is up in the air (very nice endo), the front loses grip on oil and the bike lands on my right foot. im still dead set amazed how the bike just pulled up and stopped, incredible brakes on it, was glad i made sure i put better pads on when i had it serviced, i didnt even touch the car infront of me, which i thought i was going to hit for sure. the guy in the next lane jumps out of the car and hears my screams of, "excuse me sir, may you please lift this bike off my ankle" he was onto it like a flash with another and lift the bike off. all were very good. the police came over and ask what happened, i told em my story and they called for the ambo's while i just laid on the road waiting. got taken to the hospital, was there awhile waiting, got the exrays and the good news came in that my foot wasnt broken, so i was some what reliefed. not much damage to the bike, the marks that were on the tail 99% of it polished off and you cant even notice the rest, and just broken front brake and rear brake levers. the oggy knob took most of the hit (great investment those little puppies were). im going to drop the bike in to get it checked over though to make sure the handle bars havent been bent etc. one thing that works out well, as i was travelling home from work, i can claim it on work compo just a BIG shout out to all the people who helped out (as two guys were riders, 1 guy who was wearing army gear who looked after my bike, he said he races bikes and the ambo officer who looked after me).
