View Full Version : Cape Town - Cruiser on the N1 to Town

Bike : Cruiser (Possibly Harley or V-Max)
Colour : Dark (Maybe Black, possibly Maroon)
Time : 6:20 - 6:25am

Where : N1 towards Cape Town, approaching Canal Walk.

A white VW Polo was changing lanes from the middle to the right lane, when this chap comes flying down the "tunnel" with hooter blaring and then braking so heavy that he even fishtails the rear.

I'm sorry brother, but you were WRONG!

I was four cars behind the car in question, when it clearly indicated it's intentions and then started changing lanes. A long moment after it had already started moving over with indicator already having flashed at least three times, you only came flying past me.

As I was four cars behind this car, and could clearly see it's intentions, then you should have been well aware of them as well. I believe your speed was much too high for conditions, but even at that speed you weren't paying attention and that was an error on your part.

It's fine to blame cars when they do something stupid, but you can't honestly expect cars to never change lanes so that you don't need to stop.
