This was one part of the forum I never wanted to post in ...
I was at the side of a box van on a dual carriage way, I was on the inside , he was on the outside, both doing around 40mph, I'm guessing he slowed and flashed a car that was waiting to turn right across us as we were at a box junction that was near a set of lights. My lane had no cars in it though so I was carrying on to the traffic lights.
The car just turned without checking there wasn't anything in the nearside lane, unfortunately, there was, me.
I got on the brakes but instantly knew there was no chance of stopping, so pulled the front hard to lay it over so I could roll off instead of hitting the car.
(glad we covered this in the ABS topic !)
I carried on to the middle of the junction, but I'm not sure exactly what happened to my bike, but by the looks of it it hit something hard.(I'm pressuming, the car) glad I didn't stay on it.
Luckily, I'm just sporting some RHS bruising from shoulder to ankle and that's about it.
My poor bike
