    Had one of you ******s go over my boot because he couldn't stop in time.
    (as a bus pulled out in front of me)
    Boot copped a dent, cracked my window.
    He got back on his bike, rode down a side street, couldn't get his rego (as you guys don't have them).
    Out of pocket $320.

    Pay rego.

    Cheers.

    They do say that men who only drive cars and are scared to wear lycra are lacking in the package.

    Seems it's true.

    Either that or they prefer to do it at the gym.
    That way they're not a complete nuisance to the rest of the world.
    But hey, you bike riders enjoy that.

    I would have thought all the people who have died or been smashed up due to car drivers actions outweigh anything caused by cyclists by an enormous amount.

    And yet all you're worried about is cyclists.

    I think you'll find your priorities and ideas are all ****** up.

    Imagine another car run up your ass instead of a bike. Out of pocket $3200. Looks like you had lucky day.


    road rule tip, if buses have their right indicator on they actually have right of way at any time. all the best. ;)

    Tour of Riverland. 100 metres from finish in HC race. Bunch sprint. Guy in front of me has his wheel taken out in front of him. He goes down, I have nowehere to go so i was skittled as well. Happened at about 60 clicks so pretty lucky considerinng i only popped my AC joint and got some road rash.

    I have insurance so will get a replacement, its just annoying how long it can take.

    Badly buckled an Enve rim as well.

    That's terrible mate. It's a good thing you're okay though. Bad luck about the frame and the wheel.

    My bike's a fully custom job, so if I crashed it, I'd be devastated. I don't think I could go through replacing it through insurance, due to sentimentality.

    Luckily, the worst thing that's happened to me on my bike is getting a cleat stuck on a loose pavement tile at Glenelg before fully clipping in, falling over and knocking the rear derailleur out of whack.

    A few swear words in front of small children, a walk to Bike Station to fix it up, slight cosmetic damage on the rear derailleur and a loss of pride was all I had to deal with. :oops:
