Am feeling a bit brusied and battered this morning. One thing is for sure thank god for my helmet. Its is now pretty much ruined, time for a new one. But at least my head is fine, wish I could say that about the rest of my body.
Crusing along Sydney Rd, down the left hand lane about a meter out from the curb plenty of room for me and the cars. well there is until a dickhead decides to turn left across the front of me, AAAAHHHHHH crap doing somewhere between 25 to 30kmhr no where to go....
Just do what comes naturally, lock up front wheel.....Straight over the handle bars, bike lands on top of me. Lay sprawled out on the road, cars just go around me, said dickhead has driven off.
Eventually drag mysell and bike to the footpath, everyone just keeps on going about there business.
Regain my composure and decide its time to check out the damage, scrapped knee, looking a bit brusied, nice cut to left ankle, peddle did that I think, huge blood blister on right elbow.
Amazingly bike is fine, nothing wrong with it that I can see, didnt even break off the mirror. Well it should be fine landed on me.
Helmet is not well, but saved my head so for the cost of a new one I won complain about that.
But my beautiful brand new (bought last night from Freedom Machine) Jaggad INVEST jacket is bit dirty and scrap..........
Got my sorry arse back on the horse and headed off gingerly to work.
Have spent the last few hours, sitting at my desk and moving ice pack from knee to ankle, seems to be helping. Oh thumb is turning black too.
Well for someone who went nearly a year with no crashes this is starting to suck.
