  • Keep your eyes on the road and check your mirrors people! Motorcyclists are (generally) keeping an eye out for potential dangers, but we can't predict people doing unpredictable things. Running away doesn't help either. I had somebody clip me, damaging my bike, and drive away, luckily I was uninjured and caught them up to get their details, or a phone photo of the reg plate at least. Mirror - blind spot - then move. Easy. Might save a hefty insurance bill ;) - side note: would be nice if Archant allowed paragraphs and special characters such as the slash
