  10. I'm not so sure that they are lucky they missed, or stupid to put themselves (and others) in that situation in the first place.

    I'm all for bending the rules a little... but there are limits.

    :roll:

  11. Ahhh the memories of that ride to Broadford one year when Karen did the exact some thing to me.

    Waiting for oncoming bikes to go past so I could make a right hand turn when she failed to see the other bikes were stopped and waiting to turn right.
    Just as I started to turn I spotted a glimpse of something in my mirrors and grabbed a handful of brake just as I started to roll forward.

    It was close, damn close :)

  15. That 1st clip. It's just bloody lucky that he had an escape route (onto the oncoming side) without any traffic. Would have been a head on and certain death at the pace he was doing.
