Thanks to the great brakes and ABS on the bike. Had a driver decide to do a U turn, across double yellows, in front of me on Friday. Thought the worst but pulled on all and held straight. Stopped with my front wheel resting against the front door with really no damage to both vehicles, apart from a tyre mark on the car. I must admit when I hit the picks I thought I was going down. But thanks to the awesome brakes on the bike she stopped me with little to no nonsense.
The driver said she did not see me. Yeh right, big sucker of a bike, sunshine and I am wearing a fluorescent vest. "Lady you did not look".
I think it was important that I followed the rules I learned from this site. Keep the bike straight at all times or she will take a nap.
Just thought I would share this.
