View Full Version : Rider down, Lesmurdie

17-03-2013, 09:28 PM
My daughter got cleaned up by an old Nissan Patrol this afternoon at the Lesmurdie/Canning Rd roundabout. She is OK apart from a few abrasions, luckily wearing full protective gear which did it's job. Little GPX is not so well off, have totalled up some $4100 in parts! Driver claims she "didn't even see her". Familiar? Bright yellow bike! Obviously no flouro vest was the problem. Driver not insured so it's anyone's guess if this uni student will get any money to fix her beloved bike. She was lucky though, the roo bar of the car took out the LH rear of the bike, about 50cm behind her leg. Could have been much worse.

Glad to hear she is OK. Those bright yellow bikes and head lights are a bugger to see. Pass on my regards.

Sucks about the bike but I'm sure you're just happy your daughter is relatively unhurt.

17-03-2013, 10:19 PM

Glad your daughter is OK, she'll have to pinch use one of the other bikes :D

17-03-2013, 10:22 PM
This must tear at all sorts of stuff as a Father and a motorcyclist Grin.

Glad she is still with us.

17-03-2013, 10:22 PM

17-03-2013, 10:52 PM
Heard about this one, very lucky girl!

Is Alex insured? May be able to make a claim that way and have the insurer chase the driver for damages?

18-03-2013, 01:39 AM
That's scary stuff. Glad your daughter is okay.

18-03-2013, 07:02 AM
Glad to hear nothing serious has happened to your daughter Chris, a few grey hairs for Lorene maybe...

18-03-2013, 07:13 AM
If your daughters bike is insured let them sort it out.

Good news she is OK.

18-03-2013, 07:51 AM
Could have been a whole lot worse. Thankfully she is OK.

Best regards

That's fucked...at least your daughter is OK.

This is the worry I have about our daughter riding to Uni these days.

18-03-2013, 08:40 AM
Was gutted to hear this yesterday... put the claim in under her insurance and they will chase the soccer mum for all it's worth.

18-03-2013, 08:56 AM
As said glad she's ok an let the insurance company chase it for you. Hopefully all works out for you guys

18-03-2013, 08:56 AM

18-03-2013, 02:50 PM

18-03-2013, 03:39 PM
Just glad to hear that your daughter is OK Chris.

18-03-2013, 06:12 PM
Glad she's ok. You can replace the bike. I don't relax until Cameron is home safe when he's out on the bike.

Hi everyone,
Thank you for your concern, feeling a bit sore and sorry for myself today but very lucky. Should be back on another bike within a couple of days, and having got my learners permit for R class a couple of weeks ago I think this might be the perfect opportunity to upgrade! Provided I win the lotto of course.
Thanks again,

18-03-2013, 07:16 PM
Oh no... You signed up and posted.... Prepare for endless PM's from leg humping PSB members that are trying to get into your pants... If you thought I was bad on your face book, you ain't seen nothing yet.

18-03-2013, 07:49 PM
Also... refreshing to see a girl's first post as "I've crashed but I'm ok" as her first post.

Normally on here that's a girl's second post after "I just bought a white GSXR"

18-03-2013, 09:15 PM
Thanks for your kind thoughts everyone. I've got nobody to blame but myself of course as I introduced them all to bikes, so at any one time there's a good chance that Mum, Dad, Son and Daughter are all on a bike somewhere, so as a family I guess that increases the odds. Hopefully they will get just as much pleasure out of 2 wheels that I have had over the past 44 years (bumps and scrapes included).

18-03-2013, 09:17 PM
Keep em on the track Grin.

Her excuse is she would be too awesome and show up her brother! We'll get her there one day.......and of course then she'll be hooked like the rest of us (and that will be MORE bikes for poor old Dad to be maintaining, oh and a bigger shed to keep them in). Hmmm, come to think of it, not a bad idea!

18-03-2013, 09:40 PM
justify it how you must chris, but if a man wants a shed, he builds it and asks for forgiveness :lol:

18-03-2013, 09:45 PM
Do it... she would be able to get sponsorship quite easily too... it would offset the costs well... so she better be as awesome as she thinks she is.

I have lost count of how many times I have nearly been taken out at that little roundabout on 2 and 4 wheels since they changed it from a T junction. The traffic heading along Canning Rd can be very unforgiving and out right dangerous. Glad you are OK and welcome to the forum.
