Close Call 1

Hit some diesel on a T junction, whole bike went sideways to the right, front & rear wheels. Changed into 3rd & the back wheel kicked out right. Stayed upright & unscathed, pulled over to check for flat tyre & brown stains in undergarments, neither were present!

Close Call 2

Saab, blind man, T junction (different one). Saw him not see me, my headlight on at dusk, my gear reflective. I slowed quickly with thumb on horn. HE STILL DIDN'T SEE OR HEAR ME! I stopped in the middle of the road, he pulled out past me, then he saw me! He looked horrified, I looked angrily at him.

Glad to see you are unscathed :)

CC1 - Grip (traction) is a must, whithout it, we don't have much chances..

CC2 - This is what we mean by ride like everyone is trying to take you out, it's because they are (even if they don't know it)
