Drove past rider down Guildford Road and Seventh Ave intersection about forty minutes ago or so. Bike across road facing into oncoming traffic (Harley I think, black/brown tank, rider on side of road/grassed shoulder being assisted, thankfully wearing gear). Looked like 2 cars involved (Green Commodore w/smashed up bonnet and I think a Lancer on the corner sitting over the give way sign). Couldn't tell what had happened and the rider looked in a lot of pain. Heal up fast!

Hi thanks Sauer for the RD.

I haven't posted here in awhile, but that was me on a Black and Gold Moto Guzzi. A night in RPH and home just cuts and bruises nothing broken. You have to just roll with it, so they say.

It was an Accord that shot through the stop sign. Like irdizzle says its is a shocker there at Seventh Ave and Guildford Road ever week I see some fool in a car doing something at that intersection to beat the traffic coming of Eighth Ave traffic lights.

Glad to hear you're OK and on the mend. Hopefully your bike's not too banged up either. Sorry for calling it a Harley :D

Glad you're up and about. That intersection is nuts. It's even worse when you're behind a timid driver who waits 20 mins for a gap!

Hope the cali is a write off Jason so you can buy a proper bike.

Like my spare ducati which could be for sale. With a discount for you considering your fortuitous loss.

I am perfectly happy with drivers who want to wait for a safe gap that they feel comfortable entering into it. It is the other type of driver you should worry about.

Trouble is it causes other drivers to get impatient when people take excessive amounts of time which then causes accidents :huh:
