    Default Back down to earth!

    Had an incident today, with some idiot driving not giving way. On my way to pick up some gear off a fellow forum member. End result me crashing through his windscreen, over the roof and hitting the road. Witnessed by all. Travelling about 35km/h, and no time to brake. So will be definitely wearing armour next time and sticking off the roads, too many inconsiderate drivers. Worst thing is the prick tried to blame me, when clearly he was in the wrong (not giving way when turning right). Solicitor across the road agreed with me. Currently icing every bone/ muscle in the body. Lesson to all: Dont trust anyone on the road! :(

    I am amazed at the amount of drivers who do not look beyond their bonnet, i commute every day and see people who should have there licences fuc#ing destroyed.

    I experience it enough whilst driving myself, no indicators, halfway across lanes etc. I've traded in the hookworms for knobbies and sticking off the road and onto the tracks. And wearing my motorbike armour for extra protection!, Full face helmet on order!

    Glad to hear you are ok. If it were me I'd be hitting him up for some upgrades, maybe I'm a prick...

    what!? are those your nuts hanging from the wiper? might wanna check :)

    edit: no, my mistake, must be seeing things.
