It was dusk and I was leading a group of riders back home from the chippy and was well ahead. A deer appeared through a hedge that ran alongside the road. I just managed to apply enough steering input to go behind it and my right shoulder passed a few inches behind its hind quarters. This was no mun...

Re: 'Filtering' Accident

If you watch the video for a bit longer after the collision, once she gets up and returns to her journey, you'll see why she didn't employ any of the get away quicker tactics.

Re: 'Filtering' Accident

Some interesting thoughts guys. Here's what I commented when this was shared elsewhere. I don't think it was deliberate. Hmm, filtering is allowed, however you still have to look after yourself. Why would you position yourself so close that if the car creeps forward (and a lot do) that it runs over ...

Re: Nearly a very nasty moment.

Crikey, I was expecting the StreetView to be of a suicide lane that had been converted to cross hatching.

Re: Another IAM Forum Refugee
