Nearly taken out...

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by booga, Nov 15, 2005.

  1. On my way home from a make-shift coffee tonight, decided to go the back way from Wonga Park to Ringwood, and at a T-intersection a car decides it wants to beat the traffic coming the other way, so it pulls out...
    ... ok, pull to the left, nope thats where he want's to go... pull to the right just in time before I'm a ham sandwhich... meanwhile passing him giving the honourary 1 finger salute...

    Good practise is what I saw in it...

    yes, i can create a useless thread too :p
  2. Just goes to show why every car on the roads gotta be treated
    as tho there is a d*ckhead behind the wheel.
  3. fcuking taxis, they gotta be the worst!
  4. Not useless at all, booga, every tale of avoidance and success is appreciated. Better that than a crash story.

    I guess we'd like to think that some of the defensive mantras that go on here may have contributed to making you a better rider in this circumstance!!!
  5. Too right Paul :wink:
  6. Glad to hear you made it Booga.

    Avoid the clash, go for the gap.
