    Sorry to have to report that the biker did not make it. I do have his name but don't know if the next of kin have been informed yet. I will update later today.
    RIP.

    Down the dotted line.

    RIP.
    Saf, please keep me informed. This is my neck of the woods and I'm stressing here. Hope all my friends are safe.
    That is a terrible piece of road. I'm pretty sure the taxi was coming out of the BP when the bike rode into it. I ride this way every day and always need to give SOMEONE a hoot and the finger!
    I'd rather go NAKED! :wink:
