So, I'm travelling north into the city on the Princes highway this morning, a bloke comes out of the BP servo on the right across the oncoming lanes into the lane I'm in. I realised what he was doing and could apply the brakes in time, albeit with the usual, oh crap I hope the car behind me sees me braking. I pulled up alongside his window and said, "Mate, you realise you made me slam my brakes on back there?" After many statements along the lines of "I didn't see you" and "you weren't there when I looked" he said "I ride a harley, I always look!". I pointed out that I had been in the right hand lane the whole time, and after the car in front passed him, he turned in front of me. Lights went green so no further discussion could be had, but my feeling is he saw a gap and that gap was me. I can understand, it's hard to judge distances when there is only a single headlight, but surely if you see a headlight, you double check? Especially if you ride? I wasn't following too closely, I had about a 4-5 second gap in front. Maybe that was the problem. But if it had been 3 seconds, there would have been a collision if he had turned when he did, so I dunno. That's my rant for this morning.
