  • Draggin' Jeans put to the test last night.

    Well my mate's Draggin Geans got put to the test last night unfortunately.

    He was heading down Albany Hwy at a tad over 60km/hr (75?) in Gosnells when some lady coming the other way turned thru a set of lights right in front of him. :x :x :evil:

    Next thing is, lotsa breakin' & swearin' and then he and the bike went separate ways down the road. Both missing the car (which had now stopped in the middle of the road) and any hard objects thankfully.

    Wore a hole thru the jacket and gloves but due to the Draggin Geans his arse and knee's still have all their skin on them, so now he swears by them.

    Apparently he got back up, bent a few things back to somewhat where they should be, and carried on riding to the movies.
    (The lady in the car did a runner)

    As for the bike....my old 250....**sniff**.... :cry: ..... well she's got a fair bit of gravel rash.

    It's a shame she wasn't covered in draggin' geans.........

      :x :x @ stupud sheela drivers hiyuk

      Good to hear you are ok, don't spose you got a rego or anything? Is there alot of damage to the bike? Some major intersections have cameras on them and if you chase it up you might be able to get a few quid out of her......maybe

          I wasn't there. (I was supposed to be, got held up).

          I haven't seen the bike.

          Mike is waiting on a report from Midland Kawa.

          The indicators & instrument housing are R.S.
          Steering is a bit out.
          Damage to the tank and radiator cowl.

          A bloke at the scene told Mike that apparently the coucil has cameras on the intersection so he's going to give them a ring and see what he can find out.

          Legally I dunno where it would stand (since they didn't collide) and if it would be possible to get money from her.

          Would be nice though.

          Anyone know the best way to get gouge marks out of the crankcase?

              Yeah my baby is ok.

              Spewin I didn't was riding with him......maybe we'd have been more obvious.....but maybe it'd have been worse.

              As Campo said, might go buy some Draggin' geans.

                  You don't have to come into contact to be responsible for an accident. If the driver performing the "turn in front of oncomming vehciles" caused your mate to loose control of the vehicle that's enough to deem her responsible.

                  Make sure he gets down and reports the matter to the police as a "hit and run" and advise the police in the report that the intersection is monitored by camera. Perhaps they can get the info for you.

                  Good luck.

                            They have Du-Pont Kevlar on the inside in the areas that count IE, kness, batty, hips.

                            If you want a pair, go see Chookie at Causeway Honda, tell him PSB sent ya.

                            Everyone should have a set befor they set their arse on a bike.
