Apologies if this is a re-post. Just picked up on it from another forum I’m on more regularly (mate there spotted it on Gixxerjunkies). After reading it I thought it would be wise to share it here:
watch out for a silver van
mate of mine was passing static traffic behind a mate (few bikes behind them) on blackheath road, a silver van was in the inside lane comin in the opposite direction, sped up crossed both oncoming lanes and charged at her mate , he pulled in to a handily appearing gap unfortunately silver van man then went off to my mate and took her out pretty badly…
she called the local dibble today to get the reference numbers for insurance and they read her out an identical accident that happened 8 minutes later.
seems there’s a silver transit type van targetting motorbikes and going for head ons or a serious side swipe… in the blackheath catford lewisham area…
watch out folks
she ended up right underneath the cars in the queue, not the easiest place for the ambulance people to work on you (knocked out) split her lid from visor to top vents. tank is ok but that sounds about it.
Her legs about three times it’s usual size n she’s pretty sore - but breathing. I took her chocolate and sweets so she’ll be better now
apparently the pillion on the bike he took out a few minutes later also needed working on in the road prior to being nee nawed off in the ambulance.
nobody is in any doubt that it was intentional - unfortunately whilst most saw the aftermath, the static drivers were in that kinda traffic jam dreamland up to the point of impact and because there are road works in the area much of the cctv is disabled for now.
what a wenker,thats attemped murder.its bad enough staying upright in the city as it is let alone being hit on purpose,hope the van driver drops dead:angry:.)hope the rider makes a quick recovery,shocking:angry:
reading the originl post that happens to me regularly
cars/vans in the middle of the road coming at ya, where they put them p0xy speed bumps in the road it seems every t0sser will stride the 1 in the middle of the road thus been half way across the other sideof the road in our path cos on bikes you can go between the humps.
