It's been a while since I last drove a car - my Mercedes broke down back in June and I've been riding my bike ever since. Now I have a new car ready for the bad winter weather.

Fitting Hard Krome Loud Pipes to the XV1900
19th September 2012Cars & Bikes
Ever since I earned my motorbike licence I have ridden bikes with loud pipes and never had any kind of accident or collision. Three days of riding my new bike on standard pipes, a car driver "didn't see me" and went straight up the rear whilst I was stopped making observations at a junction. Time to change that and fit some loud pipes!
Grrr... Rear Ended

Three days after getting my new bike, some stupid woman driver goes straight up the back of it at a T junction - the excuse? SMIDSY!
