  1. Wonder how long before urine and shitstains come off the car seat.
  2. Good reactions, wasnt police or something with a vid cam on the dash?
  3. Faaark - ABS, anyone? Every cage should have it...
  4. That's a pretty handy piece of driving. Great presence of mind. Full marks. I wish they were all that switched on.
  5. links to that site never work for me :(
  6. holy f*uck. kudos to the rider!!! he could have died that day...
  7. Nono, i think it was a cage.. if im not mistaken.
  8. Yep. Saved a lot of pain I reckon.

    And what Smee said about the stains...
  9. I once knew someone nicknamed 'Shitstains' - I wonder if he was named such after an event like this....WOW !!!
  10. Just a little too close
  11. It still could have ended messy if someone was tailgating the truck...

    Kudos to the driver - he kept his cool and had (or at least appeared to have) complete control. That was a pretty narrow gap he maneuvered through behind the van.
  12. The best part, not a single word or noise from the driver. Audio was there, driver remained silent.
  13. I keep watching it over and over again, imagining it was me on my bike. I don't like it.
  14. Farkin hell, thats gotta be a cop car. Very few untrained drivers would remain that calm in those circumstances. Bloody good driving especially when you consider the first reaction for most drivers would be to turn right away from the truck
