  1. I was nearly blown off the bike while waiting for the lights to change in
    Civic, Canberra, on Tuesday evening. I was very scared as I was moving off.
    I have stayed off the bike substantially since. The weather forecast in
    Canberra for this coming Sunday is very windy.

    Yep, they were NOT your normal winds. I swear there were gusts that
    went from near nothing to well in excess of 100km/h in the space of a
    second. Bloody scary stiuff.

    In that I live in the Blueys and ride? Indeedly doodly. But not in
    that I belong to any BM clubs. <cue Groucho Marx> "I don't want to
    belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member."

    Yep, that's the sense in which I used the term BMB.
    I share that sentiment.

    Wollombi lunch a temptation?

    Thanks, but not at the moment. Perhaps when my wrists are giving me
    less curry.

    It did look odd. I suspect he lost the front under heavy braking.

    Yep, clearly - and then it captured the two fallen bikes and whirled them
    round an' round an' round (an' round!) :p
