I was minding my own business approaching humpback bridge when some white van man came steaming over the bridge and could not stop in time to avoid a parked car on the same side of the road as him so he thought I would drive on my side of the road using the bonnet of my beloved beemer as a ramp, narrowly missing me in the drivers seat!

Pretty full on really!

Stephen

Glad you are not too badly damaged, shame I cant say the same for your car.

Wychers Gate Road, south of Rowlands I presume. I nearly collected a caravan on the back of a Tranny who had parked half way round the S bend in the background.

Damn, dude;

Glad you got out of it relatively unscathed. Looks like it could have been a lot worse.

Here's to a speedy and full recovery of your back.

(Sorry to hijack your thread, Biggles)

Holy Cow!!!

Is that an opposing traffic road????? Those lanes are narrow. Then take into account that hedge!!! I hope you have a speedy recovery!

It would be great to see some pics of your refurbed sr4 Biggles. It must look sharp with the new strake.
