Aquaplaning Accident M42 04 March 2012
Aquaplaning Accident M42 04 March 2012. Two very large pools of water caused several accidents this morning ( 4th March 2012) on the M42 and M6 near Birmingham Airport. Everyone looked to be OK in this one.
The tail of the dragon
one of my favourite songs...It's my own mix...we all now it's not a big deal....but it's sounds pretty good..... I think ;)
-if you don't like slide shows, please still give it a go as the song is the priority in this video.
-IT IS NOT THE GRANTURISMO 2 soundtrack, as that one has car sounds, while this has bike sounds....the son is the same though.
If you don't like it, foxtrot, oscar.
White van driver teaches me a lesson
Coming off a roundabout the road widens then narrows (pinch point) so I remain in the primary position. Van driver behind me doesn't like it and sits right in my back wheel (battery had run out on rear camera!). He then passes me and out of concern for his proximity I put out a hand to defend myself (not much use but instinctive). He is close enough for my fingers to touch the back panel of his van.
After passing me, he signals that I should be further over (no, because it is a pinch point, parked cars, junction etc). He then hits his brakes (nothing in front of him) forcing me to quickly brake (you can see my head lurch forward!) to avoid hitting him.
I think I will be calling the police (V519 POC)
A VERY lucky escape...
A very lucky escape for one of my friends after her bike decides to dump the engine oil in the middle of a series of tight bends, no idea how she managed to stay on that bike!
The oil was dripping off the back tyre when she pulled over...
The bike was in the garage yesterday for new tyres and they offered to change the oil for her, it nearly cost her her bike, or worse, on the other side of that crash barrier is a 50 foot drop.
She has posted a comment in this video now saying that the garage was MOTORRAD in Avenida San Pablo, 28 in Coslada, Madrid.
If you are ever in Madrid and you need some work done to your bike, don't go there!
You're going 28mph! - is that it?
The passenger lets me know that I'm going 28mph and looks shocked when I ask is that it? They shout for me to go faster, but no thanks.
My GPS reading was more like 26mph.
