I did with a car
Cams Hall is a hill with traffic lights
Car coming from behind and lights changing, My observations was that he was not going to stop at lights and pulled into the slip lane
Car passed straight through where I would have ben and in a cloud of burning rubber stopped half way across the lights

Now you are being silly. How was I to know a motor cyclist was going to loose control. You need to think through what you typed. You are blaming me for not getting out of the way on an unlit road in the dark with the lights of other cars coming towards me. I am according to you supposed to be looking over my shoulder at all times. Silly, very silly.
PS you don't know if you avoided an accident the car could have gone round you and very likely would off. Your are being hysterical.
PPS the first thing the insurance company asked me was "were you wearing helmet" "yes and you are paying for a new one"!!
It is obvious from your answer that you did not see the video in the link.
