    Divine Intervention on the Sunshine Coast

    Went to Julia's bike wash today. Decided to go for a boot on the Sunshine Coast. Heading south, about 30 or so kms north of Sechelt at one of those swim holes, there's a POS Econoline van sitting on the shoulder facing north. I don't see anyone else on the highway and figure everything's cool. It was as if he was waiting for me to get nice and close before making a fucking U-turn! I figure my goose is cooked, but good. Suddenly, from out of nowhere, a lady in a white car driving north smashes into him knocking him back to where he came from, leaving me a perfect, brightly lit path to ride through safely. Where did she come from?! Both drivers were unhurt and the whole scene didn't sink in until I was at the ferry terminal.

    It's clear to me that God's Angels do exist and that I am being divinely guided to ride the face of the earth. To ride each and every twisty fearlessly. I will be like Jacob and ride from place to place spreading the message.

    I have a new life now. The old Rubberhead is a changed man. He now rides the path!

    What a day.
    I have two Hondas. Can I breed them?

    If the guy in the van wasn't critically injured. You should have done it.

    It is so cool when that happens but you can stop and weave better than you might think of course it looks like you don't have to. LOL

    Reminds me of a motorhome that did a similar thing to me. I remember being impressed by how much of the road he took up sideways. I accelerated to where his rear bumber was counting on the fact that it wouldn't be there when I got there. Sure enough I got by but that little truck that was beside me was locked up and hoping for the best when I last saw him. The motorhome made the turn so I guess it was all ok, but talk about timing, couldn't have been better if we were making a movie.

    Maybe Julia's spirit didn't want to see your nice clean bike getting dirty.
    Every day I break my previous record of consecutive days still alive.

    04 Kawi Z1000,
    You should have turned around and been a witness for the good samaritin that pushed the van back into place for you. ICBC loves to blame everyone unless there's a witness like yourself that will certify that one or the other was in the wrong.

    It's not too late. Phone today! Give the details and date and they can add it to the accident report.

    It's the least you can do for her if it turns out that ICBC is trying to proportion the blame and hit up her good driving discount as well as the van's.

    PS: with your statement along with the fact of the accident the two of you can get the van driver charged with undue care I suspect. That'll make the idiot think before doing something so braindead ever again. After you give your statement to ICBC get the accident report number and phone the cops. Ask the ICBC agent to contact the woman and pass on your phone number (they won't give you her's for obvious reasons) and the two of you charge the the poo out of that van driver!
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    Absolutely - although I haven't seen it posted here, a bike had a pick-up truck pull out in front of it just north of Hope on Friday (I think?) and the rider died. Offer whatever assistance you can to nail this van driver - may sure he won't make the same mistake again.

    PS - glad you are OK... and buy some lottery tickets before Julia's karma wears off
