every time we go on holiday to Greek islands the reps warn us off hiring a bike but generally the drivers over there are infinately better at looking out for bikes, guess its because they all ride them themselves from about 12 years old! Had many more near misses in the UK than over there.i used to ride literally anything up to 125 in the late 80s , got knocked off a few times so walked away from bikes completely until 2 years ago
re took the cbt and within 2 weeks had 4 drivers pull out right in front of me...ridiculous state of affairs.
i drive a lorry every day with zero problems yet anytime i get near a bike its like im a magnet for fools. it put me right off finally getting a full bike license, yet theres always a nagging little voice telling me to try it again lol
