    Default Being stupid.

    I was totally stupid this morning and nearly put myself 6 ft under.

    Taking an off ramp, a very large truck in front slowly started to do the same. So I went past the truck. I went back into the slow lane to do this. Didn't see anything but nearly went into the side of a car that came past at highway speed. This time the biker didn't "see the car" due to the speed difference. It was only luck that he saw me, gave a bit of space, and I that kept close to the truck.

    We both had a good fright. He must have muttered "stupid bike" all the way to his destination.
    It must have two wheels.....

    Nice to hear from you again! Hope you are keeping well otherwise.
    Riding a straight and smooth road does not make a skillful rider.
