Poor redrocket :(

You OK big fella? Whiplash, bruises etc. Take a day or two to make sure you're OK. We tend to get up, dust ourselves down and make light of it. Sometimes it is worth thinking about yourself for a moment.

Meh. Makes you wonder how people like that make it through the day alive... :roll:

I nearly got front row of a head on crash the other day, narrow 2 lane road with pushbikes on the road (bike path being redone) and the sun low in the sky straight from the back... Car in front of me sees pushbike, and just hoiks it over into the oncoming lane to swerve around. Nevermind the fact that said lane was near-as-cooeee occupied by another car :shock: 4 smoke plumes later and oncomer was standing still, leaving just enough room for little miss stupid bint with the kids in the back to duck back into her own lane like nothing's happened...



i hope you are all well out there and having a better day than me;)
Oh indeed. :D
Nice little talk @work, everybody's happy with me, got some more moolah, it's a beyooootiful day, and I've got a very long weekend coming up, only having to show up again next wednesday. :cool:

it was quite an inpact not helped by the fact that the boot of her car was loaded up with hardcore:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: the best bit was her car was able to drive away just a cracked bumper headlight and damage to the wing. on the offside if her car..hitting dead center of the front of my motor was the weakest point hence the damage:pain10:

Hard luck Chad. The main thing is you're okay, let's hope you still are in the morning!! To be sitting there and see it coming at you - Whoah:shaking:

I also was thinking how clean that 'works' van was whilst admiring the bikes on show. It's that grin of yours Chad, she probably felt it was the only way to stop you & get your number:D :D
