I'm NOT wirthy of a new bike....I keep coming off LOL

So.... on the way to work today, on my favorite bit of road, neasden roundabout for those that are local, there's a quick left, right turn that opens up.
I ride this bit of road EVERYDAY!
Not sure if it was the cold (probably) but the only thing I did differant was overtake a car on the inside, on the right hander....I knew I did wrong, so apologized to the car driver by gesturing with my left hand.
As I went into the left hander full of confidence the back end rushed out on me NO warning.....remember the bike dragging me cos' I was holding onto it, so let go.....saw it slide down the road, almost hitting the car in front
Luckily it never hit any street furniture.
Got up straight away and ran to the bike....was astonished how far I had to run
Apologized AGAIN to the same car driver, who had stopped the trafiic and picked up the bike and rolled it to the side.
At first glance a few scratches ....started the bike up and noticed, it was leaking oil from somewhere
Wasn't far from work, so decieded to ride it to work, keeping an eye on any warning lights..that way I get a day off work, see!
Anyway am home now....caught the bus, had to leave the bike at work.
Cleaned up my knee, cos' I wasn't wearing any protective trousers
I know.
Gonna hook the trailer onto the car and bring the bike back home, for further inspection.
Dis appointed, to say the least.
Ride safe Guys!!!

Armi, its a numbers game and living in London, its an even bigger numbers game.

I hadnt had a claim on a car in all my life until I started commuting to London!

Glad your OK to tell the tale anyway mate, hope the bike isnt too bad, i have a screen if needs be..

Glad to hear you were okay enough to be embarrassed, typically a good sign.

At least you didn't run over your own foot while riding a bicycle in traffic... I know this guy who did. Lives in reflective surfaces.

Re: I'm NOT wirthy of a new bike....I keep coming off LOL

Thanks for all your concerns guys, Really!

....Osh was suggesting I've been SEXTING Chris made me chuckle.

Will inspect the bike in the daylight tomorrow.

Stupid thing that happened....when I got near work,to pick up the bike, I remembered I didn't have the bike keys

Picked up the keys from home and when I got to the bike, I noticed the bike wasn't even locked

One thing made me laugh though....While I was waiting at the lights, road was 2 lanes, I was on the outside.
A scooter filters through and pulls up in front on the car on the nearside lane.....The plonker in the car, out of frustration(don't know why, he was awfully slow) shouts out...."oi..you've blocked my path!"

Wife was the last person to know.........I came indoors smiling, without my helmet, early!
She knew something was wrong....I told her i dropped the bike, as if nothing had happened and pretended I wasn't hurt.
Did the trick till I put surgical spirit on the wound....then I started yelling all kinds of amusing words

After telling Chris and John.I then told my brother

At least you're OK Armi. The bike can be fixed. I don't tell the wife I've crashed anymore, she just expects it I think.
