    Saw a red D600/650 in bridgenorth today after a decent ride out, first one I've seen since getting my d650 last year so I was quite happy, only reason I mention is because it had a rear seat cowl and they are as rare as unicorns.

    Unfortunately I'd just been past a bad accident where the rider more than likely didn't survive between ludlow and raven cafe.

    It's not nice seeing another biker being involved in an accident. Everything is against us at the moment, most of us are rusty after not riding for months, the car drivers haven't driven much either so their driving standards are poor and they just arn't used to seeing bikers. It's all a potential disaster so we need to be extra careful at the moment

    Yea I think a lot of people are rusty and a lot just don't care, it definitely brought it back how at risk we are on these.

    I came across a probable accident yesterday, on a road full of bikes. I'd stopped on a well known local B road to eat my sandwich. Bikes where going past every minute. One of the bikes was going at breakneck speed, a blue sportsbike. When I set off again, I'd gone about 2 or 3 miles and the road was closed off by a police car with it's blue lights flashing. I wouldn't be surprised if it was that very same sportsbike I'd seen.

    If it was him involved I just hope he didn't take anyone else with him.
