Last night a car reversed into me. I was following a safe distance, and he suddenly stopped, and I stopped behind him less suddenly since I didn't have enough time to check my mirrors. This left me about a bike length behind him when I saw the reverse lights and by the time I could react he drove over the front wheel, pushing the bike sideways to the ground under me, then he stopped. No injuries and only cosmetic damage to my ktm and his car, so all good! He was pretty freaked out, worried he'd killed someone I guess. But I just laughed and rode off after a quick safety check over the front wheel/brakes. I don't really have any hard feelings... it was dark and wet in the CBD. He was stopping for a park after probably circling the same block for 20 minutes, and my headlight would have been hard to see among all the other lights reflecting off wet surfaces. Obviously he should have looked more carefully before reversing, and driven slower so he could stop in time and not need to reverse. Not sure what I could have done different? I was a safe distance I think, and I had plenty of time to jump out of the way, just not move the bike. Normally I stop next to a car when they suddenly stop (to avoid being sandwiched) but it was a narrow city street and not enough room. Don't ride in the city at night when it's raining I guess. Should have taken the bus.
