Tipper drivers  ### though I would've gone the same route as the other bike at the lights down the open cross hatchings and past the tw*t.

Amazing truly amazing, he used his indicator before changing lanes. Not what happens around here.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

@TLPower I thought about it but I wasn't in a hurry that day.
@Brockett that's the only reason I was able to stop.

Unfortunately, it's not just tippers that behave like this (although having had the late, lamented Transalp written off by a tipper, I'm not a fan!) - I find myself riding as though any vehicle in front of me is likely to change lanes without looking of using signals. Too many drivers today seem to be dreaming, or reading, or on the phone.......
Modern vehicles are so easy to drive, and cocoon the driver in warm, quiet, plush surroundings, that they lose concentration.

When I started riding in the mid 70's, the best advice I was given was "Ride as if everyone on the road is out to kill you and you should be OK"
It's worked for me ...so far...touch wood....
