@Mississippi Bullfrog I'm purely guessing the caravans had their coming together before the bikes came along, I don't know the time frame as in had the caravans been blocking the road for a while or not.

@rennie thankfully not me, I saw it on a facebook post. I hate towing the van on narrow roads.

@Stu yes, my thoughts entirely

It's the bikes both lying down that puzzles me. Surely they must of been involved in an accident as why else would they be like that? :scratch:

The lead bike looks in contact with the broadside car but the one behind isn't touching anything, possibly the rider dropped it at the end of his emergency stop ?

@Tankbag glad it's not you involved. I did wonder if the bikes had rounded a bend and been unable to pull up in time.

We used to have a big wobbly white box and I hated towing it on narrow roads. When the kids left home we bought a tiny Eriba Puck which is a hoot. It's narrower than the car so no issues on rural lanes.

The day I come to power I'm piling all caravans into a heap (somewhere in Lincolnshire because it's shit) and putting a match to the lot.

Don't bother crying to me about it, I'm not listening. Benevolent dictators sometimes have to be less than benevolent for the common good.

I think everyone should go to Blackpool once, which is probably once too many :cry:
Went there twice.
First because I went to buy a car in Blackburn, second because I'm a knob...
All my food only eat vegetables. So, I'm an indirect vegetarian :cool:

All problems have a solution.
You just need to figure it out :)

That caravan picture just popped up on our local bikers Facebook page. Cue the typical - the bikes never stood a chance comment. Snag is so many road users seem to think it's fine to hurtle round a bend with no idea what's round the corner.

A friend's daughter hit a horse and then tried to make out it was the rider's fault for being round a blind bend.

It does look like the bikes were dropped from having to do an emergency stop whilst cornering. Slow in, fast out and trail braking are riding techniques for the track that work on country roads where you should assume the road is not clear round that bend.

At least everyone looks OK.

Marks on caravan denote bike impacts handle bars etc
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
