Its a kwaki you deserve to fall off! I bet it was at the traffick lights "posing".]:)

Seriously I hope your ok, I once came off my bike in the snow and landed under a bus, I saw the front axle come down on my face as the bus braked!

That was frightening.

I had a Moto Guzzi 750 Le mans back then, and a Honda 400/4.

I used to beach race with an old Triumph Tiger Cub, oh them where the days.ROTFWL

I think all motorbikes should be banned, i hate them, their bloody noisey and scare the sh*t out of me when the speed past at stupid speeds. scrap it and buy a car.

I'll go hide now before the bikers gang up on me

I have to agree with Admin 2 here - bloody dangerous things.

Anyone seen the air ambulance program on BBC? More than half their calls are to bikers!

I like my little tin box.

I had a honda 250 and came off on a corner doing 80+ (dont know exact figure but thats what the cops said!) I flew 115' without the bike and ended up semi impaled on a dead tree in a field and the bike wrapped around a gatepost. 11 pints of blood and minus 3' of intestine and a week in intensive care I came out OK......

Still LOVE riding bikes and even bought one recently (Yam XJ600) but domestic authority not happy so it had to go :(

its never the biker .... its the cars that dont see us .

Because you wear black!

Dayglow yellow or orange with reflective stripes should be mandatory.

Most bikers do themselves no favours.

how can u miss us great big head light beaming away ... ?????? look once look twice look bike..

JL - it's got to be a 2 way thing.

I am a member of the IAM - I consider myself a good observant driver. I also note that most bikers drive well.

The problem are the idiots! I appreciate that it's only a small percentage who are idiots (and I'm not accusing anyone)! They overtake when it's not safe, weave in and out of stationary and slow moving traffic, think a solid white line doesn't apply to them. And wear dark coloured clothes. Where I live bikers come to have a play on the pretty winding country lanes.

In the last year I can think of a few 'near misses' with bikes. One was on my side of the road (going in opposite direction) if I hadn't put 2 wheels on the verge I'd have hit him. Another I was pulling out of a junction and a car was a safe distance away - biker decided to overtake car whilst I was pulling out - despite the car doing 30mph in a 30mph limit!

Make yourselves more visible and drive with more consideration. If you want to push your bike go to a track!

I'd say its 50/50. If I see a bike behind me I always move right over so they can overtake, even if they aren't in that much of a rush. Would rather they were in front of me than behind.

The problem happens when a bike is doing well over the limit over taking cars for fun. So even though your checking your mirrors all the time a bike driving dangerously can go from not being in your view at all, to being on your offside rear wheel in a matter of 5 seconds.

My missus' family are mad on bikes, I'd love to get one, but time/money/and love of my car and bones stops me.

Glad your ok, bike doesnt look too bad either

Sorry to hear it dude - nice bike. Am in the throws of trading in my Thundercat for a ZX12R. Anyone who ****s us bikers off needs to ride one before they pass judgement. as well as riding fast, we are also more skilled than the 'simple' car driver.

im sure many of you are, but there are still the idiots.

same with car drivers too, too many idiots. and the amount of people who are unable to use a light controlled round about. few near me, always gotta watch the idiot who is in the wrong lane, even though it has small dotted lines guiding people to the correct lane!

a car rider who drives a bike is a lot more observant than a car driver, youhave to have eyes up ur B side to ride a bike... at 160 its very easy for someone not to see you and pull out. :( if only they looked twice they might see us . :?

Wise words Andy!

How do all these 'excellent' bikers end up mashed against trees then? In a week I see more people making minor mistakes in cars (wrong lane, poor signals etc) but the bikes go too fast, overtake on blind corners and drive like idiots. I know some of it is because the Dales are a nice racetrack for them but when they belt past me and I'm doing a good 60!

maybe they did see you, but expected you to be sticking somewhere near the speed limit, and they should have had plenty time.
