From one twat to another....

No wonder a sizeable percentage of the population thinks Bikes should be banned...

Wow... I don't think I've ever seen a bike do that... it was sort of like a front facing high-side :\

The copper says "a really nasty collision" But look again ----- there was no contact at all.
Kind of a back skid then a stoppie flipping the bike sideways and re apearing on the left missing all cars.
So you could argue that he did stop within the distance he coud see, but like when evil canevil jumps 30 busses and then breaks his back when he lands "that dont count"
Biker was a twat for sure and about 40mph too fast
I don't do rain or threat there of. dry rider only with no shame.

I think he was using the video to highlight his argument/advice just because it happened to be on a cop car camera.
BUT he was a twat, no doubt about it.

Jeez! How fast was that idiot going? That was almost suicidally dangerous!

It's as bad as when I see pillocks treating the gap between Lanes 2 and 3 on a motorway as a "bikes only" lane and blasting along between lines of virtually stationary cars.

All it needs is for someone to try to switch lanes without checking their mirrors properly and *blam* :(

A peculiar dismount, but from the way the car jolted and the dent that appeared in the driver's side door I'd say there was contact.
That was a mad speed to be going though, presumably that was an unmarked police car or he'd have been a bit more cautious. :lol

Not quite that impressive, the biggest of these is only 9m. They're at Television Centre.


>edit< Actually, yes. 4 years on and many of them are now at Goonhilly.

We used to use the motorway as a sort of racetrack during rush-hour.  But we were idiots at the time (most despatch riders were).
 
But that was a collision, the goes sideways cos it hit the car and the rider hit the car , probably, before the bike cos he had already left the building by that time.
