Went for a drive today to Castlemaine to have lunch with friends. It was a glorious Central Victorian Day, blue skies and warm sunshine, had the roof open in my car for the first time for ages, IPod rocking, PK was in her idea of heaven!

I tend to think bikes are unsafe on the road, but this piece just shows that maybe it's not the bike, but the cars that are unsafe. It also shows that we shouldn't judge at face value.

I saw you hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store line.
But you didn't see me put an extra $10.00 in the collection plate last Sunday.

I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk.
But you didn't see me playing Santa at the local mall.

I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant.
But you didn't see me attending a meeting to raise more money for the hurricane relief.

I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I drove by.
But you didn't see me driving behind you when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.

I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children.
But you didn 't see me when I took time off from work to run toys to the homeless.

I saw you stare at my long hair.
But you didn't see me and my friends cut ten inches off for Locks of Love.

I saw you roll your eyes at our leather coats and gloves.
But you didn't see me and my brothers donate our old coats and gloves to those that had none.

I saw you look in fright at my tattoos.
But you didn't see me cry as my children where born and have their name written over and in my heart.

I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.
But you didn't see me going home to be with my family.

I saw you complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be.
But you didn't see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.

I saw you yelling at your kids in the car.
But you didn't see me pat my child's hands, knowing he was safe behind me.

I saw you reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road.
But you didn't see me squeeze my wife's leg when she told me to take the next turn.

I saw you race down the road in the rain.
But you didn't see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on his date.

I saw you run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time.
But you didn't see me trying to turn right

I saw you cut me off because you needed to be in the lane I was in.
But you didn't see me leave the road.

I saw you waiting impatiently for my friends to pass.
But you didn't see me. I wasn't there.

I saw you go home to your family.
But you didn't see me. Because, I died that day you cut me off.

I WAS JUST A BIKER. A person with friends and a family. But you didn't see me.

Wow IC that is so close to the bone .... the old adage sprung to mind " Don't judge a book by it's cover".

Quiet day on the roads when I went out earlier, it's a public holiday for the Bendigo Cup, but I bet it's not a quiet night in town, the racegoers usually bus it back to town and kick on for the rest of the night Jubilant Drinks Jubilant

Parked at a supermarket the other day. Came out after doing the shopping and found that some yahoo had broken my side mirror Stamp Feet. The wheel was scraped as well, which suggests that a 4x4 had clipped me as he/she was reversing out of their park. No note was left.
I knew that my service was coming up so I had it fixed at the same time. Still, cost an extra $300 on top of a normal service. Not happy. Angry This sort of thing happens all of the time. What has happened to you guys?

Don't you just hate it when you are driving down a way way street in a car park, and you have a maniac driving straight at you in the wrong direction? Stamp Feet Ahhhh!
