i was riding down one of my favorite roads today and i came across a car reversing up the road on my side.
wtf

then after stopping behind him i got hit from behind by some other twat who didnt know where his brakes were.
wtf

so after pulling my bike back up the cliff it went down i found hardly a scratch.
wtf

found a broken steering stopper tho and i suspect the swingarm is a bit tweaked because when its accelerating hard it goes off to the right(which lines up with the cut on teh left of my rear tyre
(wtf)

WTF indeed, that's really fucked up. Glad the bike's ok(ish). Might have bent the swingarm pivot or summit similar.

Man that sucks but yeah i've come accross idiots reversing up the wrong side of the road cos they missed their turn off and so on. I don't see the difficulty in doing a u turn aye lol. Glad your ok though, better the bike than you mate, although it sounds like the bike didn't come off too bad.

P.S Post pics if in the distant distant future if you do get a monster truck :niceone: lol

U-turn....! I came around one of those notorious (but fun) blind corners out at Piha yesterday and there was a stupid chick trying to pull a U-turn in the most retarded places you could possibly pick (at the top of a hill and on a corner).

Had to check my undies later at home as it was ridiculously close.

think of the benifts
if you go in reverse you may actually save fuel and emisions
you may also not clock up any km depending on the car
you ll be going slower so it may be safer anyway
and the best bit is that when reversing you dont need a seat belt on .
im all for it ........and so was someone else in this town a long time back they actually did do this .....and a lot of other stuff that was just as stupid
:crazy:
sorry to hear about the bike glad its not to bad

man i thought i was bad doing dum shit and falling off, but at least that was my fault, getting taken out sucks!

woulda bashed the guy but he was knocked out in the ditch.
i even felt sorry for him and turned his bike off/picked it up for him.

I had two fucken close calls, one on my way to Cycletreads for new brakepads, turning left into barry's point rd comming off from the motorway, this women who was driving straight decided to turn left at the last minute (and doesn't look) and nearly taking me out. And other one exactly the same thing, but turning onto Tamaki Drive.

Strange thing is, both of them were women....

riding on the bus lane, suddenly a black 4x4 zoomed into the lane without indicating but revving hard.

dunno, i kinda consider this entirely the cager's fault.... that other biker would have had less distance to stop in with chris there, which is the cager's fault

lucky both of you didn't just fly into their boot (though they might learn a lesson that way)

I see it as both sides fault...yes the cage should have pulled off the road then turned around safely...

Secondly the biker behind should be able to read the situation and stop or avoid it safely...if not then he was going too fast..

Always ride to the roads conditions...and be prepared..

assuming it's a completely blind corner here, but yeah if you're travelling too fast expect problems...

though having to stop/swerve midway through a blind "45" corner for some idiot parking on the inside just past the apex i tell you now is not easy,
and now there is those "no stopping at all times" signs there on the inside of a blind corner out in the countryside, so obviously someone eventually hit her (she told me to mind my own business and piss off when i asked wtf she thought she was doing:angry2:). you'd think the basic "will i cause an accident doing this" would be something people do automatically:mad:

Its common sense....yes if you are nailing it on a blind sharp corner then the last thing you'd expect is a car parked in the lane..when it happens...crap too late kinda thing.

But thinking more about it...it is the cage's fault...if you look at a motorway accident during rush hour....its the car who stopped first who caused everyone else to pile into their ass....

Like a domino effect...

Sadly while this sounds good, it is not true........failing to stop is a common infringement issued. There are no "grey" areas here. If you fail to stop and hit someone in front of you, it is your fault!

yeah, hey call it following too close, and apparently it still applies when you get shunted forward into another car

yes he was, though the cager unlitmatley caused the whole accident

did you dent their car at all? what did they do/say?

Nope! As a survivor of a 5 car nose to tail accident, I can assure you that if you indeed stop without hitting the car in front, and subsequently get shunted into that car you wont get a ticket!.............learned a lot about failure to stop that day!

Good on ya for being able to stop, your the only one you can control and it sounds like you did ok. Getting hit from the back by another bike?

I bet he has some other excuse that isn't "shit I had crap target fixation and it's my fault for hitting you, here's my details so you can make a claim".

Even if your on a bigger bike than your licence allows you came across a hazard and reacted, they failed to.

i refuse to do piha road...the corners are ok but it's too suburban theres too many bloodey driveways everywhere....

it's like doing 120kph through ur local suburb.

too many cars round blind corners.....doing stupif shit....

no, only the very end (the best bit) is the suburban bit, otherwise it's a good road, only accessible from another good road (scenic drive) which is connected to multitudes of nice twisty roads, and it's only 20minutes from the cbd (or 0 seconds from my house :p)

I've ridden Scenic Drive and Piha Rd for a number of years now as we live in the area and have a family place at Piha.

In that time I've:
- binned after loosing the front on loose metal that wasnt signposted
- hit an oil spill obscured by shadows from overhanging trees causing me to drift across the road into an oncoming vehicle. Thankfully I pulled the bike far enough to the left to run the throttle and my right hand along the side of the car. Hand is a bit stuffed though. Oh....and I had a pillion on the bike at the time.
- a few too many incidents of cages going wide around left hand corners and into my lane (sometimes 2 incidents in one day, usually by cages towing big trailers and especially on Scenic Drive between Piha Rd and Swanson)
- gone around a 55kph corner to find a car stalled in the middle of the lane because the driver couldnt hill start after reversing out of their driveway. I have no idea why...but on that day I decided to take that corner at 55.

I know the roads well and they aint no playground.

IHMO - the moment you choose to ride those roads without respect... esp Scenic Drive...you choose to stack the odds against yourself.

Oh yeah, since we're writing about our near misses in this thread: I had another one today.

I had the right of way and was turing right into the Akl Domain when a motorcycle courier on what looked like a Bandit coming towards me turned left into the same road (failed to give way to me as he is supposed to). I followed him into the corner and then about 5 metres down the road he busts a U-turn right in front of me without indicating or the slightest warning. I locked up the rear and nearly the front too and stalled my engine in the process.

I was fucken furious but by the time I had kickstarted my bike again the dude was long gone. In the mean time, the cage that was following behind me almost took me out... (could have been a bit like your latest crash Chris).

I'll come across that motorcycle courier again and give him a slap on the back of his helmet.

yeah i've got a list almost as long as that, but i find piha rd to be relatively clear up until the final decent

I couldn't agree more, I was riding to Piha Monday evening after work and came across what one can only imagine as a small penis of a kid in what I can only assume to be Daddies V8 ute over taking a line of 4-5 cages on a blind corner!! Fuck!:blank: I yelled as I swung left out of harms way and almost into the ditch. Almost needed a change of undies after that one...

the guy who rear ended made it clear to me today that he was not in the wrong, and that in fact i was lieing about my bike being damaged.

he also pointed out that the guy who was reversing up the road was at fault and that i should speak to him.

now i dont know what im going to do but i do know where he works.
exept he hasnt been there since it happened.

28th November 2007, 16:23
well the biker is in the wrong, but it's the driver's fault

not your fault you stopped in time at any rate, though your licence makes things difficult for you when insurance companies look for a way out

do you know the rider or is it some random guy?

Oh bro, the fun and games begin! Best to get some professional advice here as you don't want this other biker's insurance company chasing you or worse, the cager's.

Document everything from here on in (if you haven't already), text messages, phone conversations etc. Write down the exact words that were spoken at the time of the accident if you can still remember them.

29th November 2007, 09:34
This sucks, man
Hope you have got insurance, witness and as MacStar says, document everything.
Good luck as you may need it in your caseÖ

I had a car reverse into me and break my front mud guard at a intersection, (the thread is missing after kiwibiker site down) anyway, long story in short:

at intersection --> he stop --> i stop --> he reverse --> hit me --> checking --> he deny the responsibility and says itís me hit him (fucking liar) --> I called police --> police came --> two stories--> frustration --> witness came up --> problem solved --> careless driving for him --> insurance claim for me


Off the topic:
Isnít that following rider should be riding at the different side when heís following you? For example, if you riding right side of the road and he should be riding left side of the road? The stack formation?
I always do that when I followed someone in the traffic.

yeah but when doing corners everyone tends to take lines around and generally lose the stack until a straight bit

and i suspect that chris was a few seconds ahead

Dude if you haven't told them about your licence, DON'T!! Don't give them anything. People get confused when there is an obsticle in the way, who or what it is doesn't matter. You need to be able to stop in time to avoid hitting WHATEVER may be in your path, the road might just fall away to nothing due to a landslide etc.. who knows? So in the end they out-rode their stopping distance, you didn't. They must have been fixated cos if they weren't they would have stopped (or hit something) past you and given themselves a longer stopping distance.

When will people that run up otheres asses stop looking for loopholes and fess up that they left the oven on too long? The colour of your card doesn't say jack when they made a mistake and you managed not to.

I'd continue thru the courts or small claims just for the principle of it all. The sole reason of the guy trying to say it's your fault.

C'mon Mr other rider.
