Some guy was leaving last night and left the carpark from the roundabout side and shot off past the Ace quite quickly. By the time he got past the Ace he breaked heavily and did what looked like a side swipe onto a vehicle.
(I was standing on the footpath-bridge and there were hundreds of people in the street so had a limited view) I saw the rider flung in the air to one side and the bike shot off and hit a few things before resting in a pool of oil down the road at the traffick lights)
Everybody crowded around the guy and completely blocked off the road and stopped traffic which made a head ache for the rescue to get there.
They eventually had him off in the ambulance and cleared the bike off the road. Some one said that he had trouble breathing but I didn’t hand around to add to the congestion.
I certainly hope he isn’t seriously injured and makes a full recovery. If everyone could say a little prayer tonight for the downed brother and just take care on the road. We all ride bikes to enjoy them, but there is a time and place for it. Ride them hard and fast but in a location that won’t endanger you or others unneccessarily.
I hope to see the rider make a full recovery and get him back on the road soon.
Look after yourselves everyone - you’re more special than you think, cause we love ya.
Lesson learnt the hard way…it’s happened before, some of us are sensible enough to observe and make better judgements, others perhaps just don’t…wouldn’t wish harm on anyone and hope he recovers, but lets hope the point is made.
I hate pulling out the carpark now from either end, you need fish eyes and and be able to see out your arse to check its all clear… and why is it as soon as anything happens everyone’s waving a mobile phone in the air trying to film it?
Yea. as I said previously. I didn’t have a clear view of the actual accident. However it goes to show you that it’s a case of when and not if. There are guys that stunt all night long with nothing happening and then someone does a little thing and gets totalled.
I’m always scared of leaving at the ace. even walking across the road is dangerouse.
Mmmmm I think at one point that was the mumblings going round the Ace last night. No road markings from plod and the road was reopened. The bike was being pushed away by Carl from the Ace but I don’t think it was a fatal. I think it was all about making sure he was properly looked after by the medics and the fact he was falling in and out of consciousness. Hopefully he will be ok.
Dear God please don’t let it be a fatality:crying: It was bad but not THAT bad. I’m a new rider and regularly ride faster than that. I think I/we need a reality check sometimes but not at this cost. Until I read it in the papers I’ll believe that he will pull through and be ok in due time. Fingers crossed for the rider and his/her family.
“For the record he was not stunting…as the rumors have suggested. He was riding home at the time, the other biker was parked on the left and decided to pull out to do a U turn, and then they collided. He broke one of his fingers and shattered his color bone… but he’s OK.”
