So yesterday on my way down to the ace, I got “nudged” by a white van driver who wanted to push into my lane, and I went over onto my left hand side. I was stationary, and if I’d been thinking at all I’d have looked for a numberplate, but I was just so shocked I didn’t think to. Picked the bike up (damn 230kg plus fuel is heavy! Luckily I’d left the top-box and chain at home because I’d been out for a ride for fun and didn’t need them), and rode on to the ace where I saw some folks for newbie night.
This morning I’m feeling a pain in my hand (which hit the ground first) - not broken or bruised but something is strained for sure. I also went out to look at the bike in the light of day and saw some ugly scratches:
As luck would have it, there was a pothole that the crash bung went into, leaving the brunt of the weight here. sigh
Bloody white van drivers!!
There, rant over. Bike still rides beautifully
