Am I piddling into the wind with this one? I have gone to work in Manchester city centre pretty much every day for the last few years on my trusted Honda NC750X. Whilst its probably the least exciting bike in my collection (I have a few) it was (note past tense) without doubt the most reliable and economical. In June I was in the middle lane of three when some young lad overtook me using the outside lane, pulled in front of me and then braked suddenly, slowing down when there was absolutely faff all in front of him. Despite being on the anchors quicksmart, I couldn’t avoid smashing into the re ..read more

Hire bike hell…

Twelve months ago, I was filtering between lanes two and three on the M25. A van just pulled out from lane three into two and took me out. However, the van driver’s insurer is kicking off about a credit hire bike I got via a company my insurance broker put me in contact with. The van driver’ insurer reckons I didn’t need a hire bike, at least for the first two months, as my arm was in a cast. To be fair, I didn’t really need it as I couldn’t ride, but said wouldn’t be the credit bike hire company liable for anything, so I took the bike. However, it is now right royally kicking off with the hir ..read more

Surf’s up

I was taking my bike in for a service. On the way I ended up behind a VW campervan which appeared to have everything including the kitchen sink inside it, and two surfboards tied on top (subsequently I found out they were heading on a camping/surfing trip). They were cruising along at about 50mph in a 60mph limit. As I was looking to overtake them, they hit a bump and the next thing one of the surfboards fell off the top of the wagon and bounced into the road in front of me. I stood absolutely no chance of avoiding it and the next thing I know I’m looking skywards completely winded and struggl ..read more

IAM Instructor Vs Lorry – who was at fault?
White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors Blog
by Andrew Prendergast
3w ago
I am an IAM instructor and have also done my ROSPA gold so I know how to ride and have great observational skills, even if I do say so myself. Two months ago I went out on my own to blow away the cobwebs. About an hour in I came up behind a large beer delivery lorry. Despite being a 60mph limit, this plonker was trundling along at about 20mph. He seemed a bit hesitant. I followed him for about 500 yards and once I’d established it was safe to overtake (the road straightened up) I opened up my BMW R1150GS to make progress, as you’re meant to, and get past him. However, as I was alongside, he ju ..read more

They say I was speeding – I wasn’t

A car pulled across me and I hit it side-on. They say I was speeding – I wasn’t I was involved in what I thought was a straightforward accident. I was riding my bike along a straight 30mph urban road when a car pulled out of a small car park, straight into my path. I was carted off to hospital by ambulance while the police organised recovery for the bike. The driver of the car has said I was speeding, and the vehicle examiner appointed by her insurers says there’s a linkage missing from my rear brake. This is causing all kinds of problems because the vehicle examiner is saying my braking was c ..read more

Should motorcycles be allowed in bus lanes as standard across the country?
White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors Blog
by Gavin Grewal
1M ago
That’s the question that is at the heart of a new Government consultation which began on Sunday. Currently it is up to individual local authorities to decide if motorcyclists can access bus lanes but it’s neither universal nor consistent. In his foreword to the consultation document, Guy Opperman, Minister for Roads and Local Transport says: “Motorcycles are an important but sometimes overlooked mode of transport, not just by drivers who fail to spot bikers, but occasionally by government too. Their size and nature make them a dynamic and affordable option for road users, and with that it’s on ..read more
