    And Rastus is right. Fault means fuck all.

    Cassina is a fuckwit.

    It's free, and it makes an immense difference.

    Riding in a way to give way to those that may not give way is limited to times when you have no following traffic that may likely rear end you for braking unexpectedly.
    I dont blame the crap roads at all. It just involves buying a bike that can handle them safer. For those who can not afford to change bikes for different roads they will forever blame the roads I guess.
    Ditching the bike altogether is the only way to reduce the chance of coming to grief and I was told by a bike cop at a motorcycle racing event once that even the police are not keen on wanting to ride a bike to patrol on.

    Realistically my attitude (we're assuming positive and proactive awareness and satisfactory skill level) is still no guarantee that major shit won't happen while on two wheels. Since selling the bike I seem to see even more riders for whom the first word that goes through my head is......."dickhead"

    I don't think reincarnation gives you an automatic upgrade, being a lawyer you might come back as Traffic Warden.
    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.

    That could be an upgrade... sometimes traffic wardens are very nice people
    High miles, engine knock, rusty chrome, worn pegs...
    Brakes as new

    As John Cleese said about Donald Trump, "I don't see why he is complaining about being called a MORON - he should be pleased with the upgrade."
    There are two songs, "Stairway to Heaven" and "Highway to Hell" which I think give an indication of expected traffic flow

    From what I've seen personally these days in this bubble wrapped hiviz society, the vests have some visual aid out in the open but inner city & urban environment there's so many wearing them it all just blends into one big collage of colours. And to the average "gotta be somewhere 5mins ago" joe behind the wheel almost a veil of invisibility for their monocular form of vision.

    C is an obtuse POS
