So.
I just got back from what should have been a 8min round trip to bondi for some carby cleaner and well i found the reason why ABS even exists. Turned a sharp corner slowly at about 20kph after stopping at a set of red lights, stupid twit in a car from behind decides to speed up and go infront of me. I pull breaks and bammmm break lock and slide... weeeeeeeeeeee off i go into a rainy abyss. Luckily i didn't drop the bike. Why are aussie drivers so aggressive :eek:
anywho I'm lucky enough to not have dropped a bike yet, my turn will come eventually lol
Hope your all having a good weekend? :p

I did the same last night. Well not really. All my fault. I needed to makes right turn at a light but the cars wouldn't let me in so I made a left and went to make a left turn on a small street. When I pulled into the left turn lane I was braking hard and both brakes locked up. Did a small fishtail and then the front wheel kind of started turning to the left. I just let off the brakes and reapplied. Worked. Wasn't enough to cause an accident, or make me lie it down. but it was enough to let me know my limits.

Alright Aussies.... What's a p rider?

Well we have an annoying tiered license system where riders and drivers have to sit a computer test for their learners permit, then after 12 months for cars and 3 months for bikes attempt a driving test/ 2 day riding course + test to get a red provisional license (P1 aka red p plater) being restricred to 90kmph.
Thennnn after 12 months the P1 holder can go to the RMS (DMV) to get a Green provisional license (P2) being limited to 100kph which has to be held for 2 years in order to progress to a full unrestricted license.
Cant ride anything over 650cc capacity and some pathetic weight to power ratio till we hold a full riders license :l *sigh*

Happened twice to me today on my way home from work in the rain...
Drivers coming out of petrol stations and driveways not even looking before they pull out. Not to mention the second one was on the phone with one hand and eating a bloody cheeseburger with the other..

Women - taking multitasking to the extreme
