Hi Dave, good to talk to the inventor of Ridersmate and know that you are a biker as well. I put pen to paper as you requested and going to give you a brief overview of what happened. It was a wet day but not raining at the time, riding on my Honda Africa Twin and keeping up with the traffic. There was a straight road ahead and I indicated and gave plenty of time, pulled out to overtake and no sooner had I accelerated than the car I am overtaking also pulled out. I ended up running off the road on the far side just missing oncoming traffic but colliding with a wall. I won’t go into too much detail, but I came round in hospital several hours later with wires and tubes attached to every orifice and more. The Honda was a write off and I survived. The ambulance got to me within 12 minutes following a call from my brother, he got the Ridersmate message. It was a close call apparently. Just a short note to say thanks and if you are passing stop by for a drink.
