the last post....(almost)

Well today the trip almost ended before it began....permanently.

On the way to work in the rain, coming out of the Harbour Tunnel at 80K in the middle of 8 lanes of peak hour traffic, the car in front of me suddenly swerved and changed lanes. For a second I was able to see why as lying right across the full lane at an angle was a large thick length of 2"X 4" timber.

I had no choice but to ride over it. I hit it, felt the bike lift and then land heavily on the slick surface. The entire bike wobbled and jerked like a hyperactive disco diva before I was able to bring it under control.

A large shot of adrenalin first thing in the morning is better than a double espresso.
