I was visiting a site today and the area I needed to get into is protected by one of those ramps that rise out of the ground to stop unwanted access.
Normally I just roll up, push the buzzer, speak to the woman and she drops the ramp to let me in. However, today the ramp was already down when I arrived and the green light was on which meant I could go through - anyway as I rode over the ramp the flippin’ thing popped out of the ground and almost sent me flying…thankfully I managed to control the bike and there is just a bit of a scratch to the underside of one half of the fairings. Shame I didn’t manage to style it up…just looked like a right pillock instead!
Got my heart going thaths for sure…guess the moral of the story is; if you have to cross these type of barriers, be 100% sure its OK to proceed before you ride over them!
