  • Cat & Fiddle Motorbike Crash

    This guy took a corner a bit too wide, very lucky guy!

    Totally deserved it, idiot. I'm glad he's OK but I really hope his insurers aren't paying out.

          He lives near me. Its been on all the local news etc. He put the video to the media as a warning to people about driving like that. Lots of people saying hes a **** rider, but to be able to decide that quickly to go right, to miss the car, and manage to avoid the collision i think is impressive.

            To be in that situation where he has to make the choice of hitting a car or going off the road in the first place (without the car being on his side of the road) makes him a **** rider.

              Disagree with you there, Im sure the majority of us have broke the speed limit, or took a corner too fast at some point, He did the best he could out of the situation he put himself in. Yes he probably shouldnt of been riding like that but doesnt make him a **** rider

                  I have to put my hands up to having done the same. But then I knew I no self-control on a bike which is one reason I stopped.

                  I think the moment I decided was a bend I always took flat out, lovely country road with sweeping curves I really enjoyed. One time just as I lined it up a little voice from my riding instructor years ago came into my head, "Always make sure you can stop in the road you can see." Which made me hesitate and throttle back. When I came round the bend there was an artic on its side right across the road. I'd have had nowhere to go but pile headlong into it. Just very lucky that day. But as they say - there are old pilots and there are bold pilots. There are no old bold pilots.

                  Yes, it's appalling riding, just as you get appalling driving. The thing with bikes is that when you get it wrong it tends to be the one chance you get.

                    I hope we all make a conscious effort not to cross double white lines, yet he ignores them several times. He's clearly going too fast on a road I can only assume he doesn't know very well (or the corner wouldn't have sent him off). That in my opinion is not a good rider.

                      Lets be honest a car couldn't overtake another car at them double white lines but a bike past a bike is simple, even from his helmet cam I could see he had plenty of time and space to pass.

                      Unfortunately that corner gets tighter closer to the end and he's not known about that and also not looked for the the way the corner goes (cant remember the name of this). He probably could of made it round at that speed if his line was a little better and he was a little braver.

                      Anyway lets those without sin cast the first stone. Since I've done the exact same thing before that's me out.

                        I've had motorbikes since 18 and started out when I was 16, The reason I stopped is the fact of DEATH, and not always by your own riding by how bad the British motorists have gotten, Yes he was clever enough to move over to the right but stupidity put him in that position in the first place. Theres thousands of videos out there from all over the world of bikers acting like idiots.

                        Yet there is thousands of bikers branded with the same iron, even to this day I indicate and safely move to the side to allow them past but see others move into there path, even took a guy's mirror clean off when he did it to me as I had no where to go I pulled over he drove off?????

                          I love bikes but I agree with your point, I've had people pull out in front of me or done other actions which I have then had to take avoiding action from. I think a track is the best place to bike.

                            Love bikes always have, fell out with parents when I went for my bike test at 17 as they hate the idea due to how people drive and how easy your life is taken in a accident. But still passed my test and enjoyed many years of it, going Matlock, bike rallys, shows everything the last bike I had just before I joined AC. I was getting people pulling out on me blocking my path then a women clipped my arm then the bike and I though thats it no more...

                              Regardless of whether he had space or not, overtaking on Double white lines is a big no no (obviously there are rules to it such as overtaking parked vehicles etc). Can't be one rule for an impatient Motor cyclist and a different rule to impatient car drivers. He said himself he was impatient

                              Silly motorcyclist, making a silly decision.
