Yesterday afternoon around 4pm I headed down the putty to penrith from home in muswellbrook on the 620..
Went over the bridge at bulga and the pub was packed with people playing two-up out front. Grass on your left on the inside of the corner was full.
Headed into the turn about 50kmh i think (didn't really take notice) And glanced at the pub to check out any trim, something in the corner of my eye grabs my attention... A blue honda accord euro turns right in front of me right in the middle of the corner!!! Before I could think i'd pulled the clutch in, and grabbed as much brake front and rear as I could, the rear end stepped out what felt like 45 degrees to the front, bike laid over on the chicken strip and locked up. I missed old mate's rear 1/4 by i think about 6 inches.. How the hell I managed to keep the bike upright I have no idea. make the beast with two backs I wish I was wearing a gopro!
I pulled up and took off my helmet and stood there for about 10 mins to calm down.
Haven't noticed a bald spot on the conti on the rear yet...
