by near miss, do you mean you almost dusted the bike off and sat on it?

As the one who came a cropper on the kerb this morning I can testify its 'nasty'. First off if Id kept an eye on the forum it may not have happened.

Like a lot of accidents it was sequence of events that put manners on me, the front wheel was already over the kerb but by going too slow and probably too close to the kerb with too tight a turn the back wheel was having none of it.

Watch out for it my friends, such an innocuous fall has delivered a fractured finger and possible elbow.

Mick,

I am sorry to hear that Mick it can happen so easily,hopefully you will not be out of action for too long.

Can I ask everyone to please be extra careful while mounting these kerbs.
