    Near misses

    Had any lately?

    About a week of smooth rolling around (these fukin' non-yielding or even looking arseholes) in Issan, this morning I had 3 near collisions on a crotch-rocket.

    Still shaking off the last one.

    Shorts, t-shirt and helmetless like a hypocritical idiot - as I've poopooed others on this very forum for not being safer.

    Gawwwd! That was close!! Moron just pulled out straight in front of me and I missed clipping him by 2" at best. Uggg, gotta get home and change to the car.

    Got a bit lost up that mountain this weekend in a dead tree graveyard- glad I had my compass with me and was able to follow the smoke of a fire back to the picnic area; there is no way I would have lasted a night on the mountain thinking about it- got down to -32 last night

    It was an exceptionally hot tea!

    But seriously though, glad you're here to tell that tale. Those close misses can be rather disconcerting (to say the least!)

    Thanks Ant. Indeed.

    Glad you didn't sear ur scrotum.

    Regardless of true fault, I blame myself for all near misses and/or accidents.

    Like Saudi, I choose to drive in places where I'm fully aware going in - 1/2 of the others can't or shouldn't be driving at all.

    Driving in Mongolia is not for the feint of heart- too many kunts in G-Wagons with an almost ape like behavior

    Yeah I know that feeling. After my last spill on my bike -- knock really, bastard hit me -- my wife put her foot down and made me sell it because she was pregnant at the time.

    It made for a convenient excuse though truth be told because I think I'd kinda lost my nerve after that, clearly remember I started getting these strong feelings of impending doom even thinking about riding. All that being said do still miss it but.

    I have a near miss every time I go for a piss in the middle of the night.

    Pissing while posting. Or posting while pissed. I can never remember until the next day.

    A dozy bint on a motorbike pulled out in front of me recently. Lucky for her my brakes and reactions are good.
