    The laws of man do not always jive with the laws of physics or even what is intelligent or prudent.

    yeh I know bad example

    but the point is people everywhere will do things that's bad

    to smaller road users

    I have been in and seen results of avoidance in accident situations

    for example in early 80's ex wife driving in wa on dirt

    she grew up on dirt

    lost it badly

    thru heaps of trees bush

    her side of the car, spotless

    mine totally written of

    was touch and go on amputating my left arm

    still have bark in the arm,lol

    have seen this many times professionally

    survival instincts.

    cheers

    Bit extreme .. but there you go. A better troll.
    Of course I'd be blaming the motorcycle rider in that instance. The bicycle was on the extreme edge of the road, yet the motorcyclist hit him and the leading bicycle too. Of course being a road motorcycle it would never do to ride it into the dirt on a straight line and bring it to a stop.

    Others take a different point of view... if the road was cambered with a 8 foot high safety barrier it would be safer. Of course there would be no view, may as well be inside a stadium with a roof to keep it dry. Yep very safe. No joy at all.

    I guess if you're going to look for a silver lining in that black-assed cloud, that'd be it. :nod

    been riding bicycles and motorbikes since a long time, i feel like they have so much in common that there should be an understanding. i use my bicycle for commuting and racing and the moto for long camping trips.
    that being sayed i never had a bad experience on my bicycle with a motorbiker. only with sccoters which are allowed on bike trails in the netherlands.

    Some good deeds just don't go unpunished. :augie

    Got buzzed by one idiot in a Dodge truck last nite on the ride. I'm still not sure why 'cause we were in a mile-long straightaway with nothing coming. All I can figure is he wanted a better look at my sexy ass and got distracted. :dunno

    Suprised he didn't smoke you, seems that Dodge pickups have the highest percentage of assholes for some reason. Chipped, loud exhaust and bull balls , or is it Ram balls on the trailer hitch.

    That's been my experience. Dodge = :asshat IME it isn't the dually trucks, but the 4x4s that are the real yahoos. Followed closely by PSD drivers.

    BWalsh being the exception to the rule. :nod
