I'm not surprised. As I was heading to Devon on the Friday before the bank holiday Monday I was overtaken in the speed trap area heading out of the village! He must be a complete idiot but sadly the camera never flashed.

We were there. A car pulled out into the path of an oncoming, 1940's, motorcycle. He was NOT travelling at high speed. It was entirely the car drivers fault. As is very common, the driver simply did not look properly before pulling out and the motorcyclist could not stop quickly enough. It was lucky he was not more seriously injured. Get the facts before jumping to incorrect conclusions.

Kimmy, I very much hope he is OK. And that his bike is repairable. My sympathies to you both. Another car driver not paying attention.

people on the roads have no consideration for motorcyclists. At least the man was not more hurt and hopefully will be recovered soon.
I have to maybe be wrong but defend cruser. i think they are commenting on a different driver. and not insulting ur husband kimmy. they said fri before bank holiday and ur husbands accident was on sunday. if im wrong then u are right to have a snap. id do the same thing. i hope hes well and riding again soon
