Yesterday morning i thought I was stopping to assist a fellow rider and ended up calming down some old biddy!! Some diesel had been spilt on a roundabout and a Gixer rider had come off his bike. As I arrived he was picking himself up and collecting his helmet from the middle of the road. I stopped, checked with him that he was uninjured and bike was ok. I'm fine he said but that driver is screaming!!! Grey haired elderly lady sat screaming in her car! All I could get out of her was "I thought his head had come off" repeatedly. Referring of course to the riders helmet which had detached from the riders head and did it's own thing in the road. Took me a good 10 minutes to settle her down. In the end I left her to some more sympathetic folk who seemed to pacify her much more than I could. Now I ALWAYS fasten my helmet strap, I assumed everyone did, is this not the case? I had just finished a long night shift and all that was on my mind was sleeeeep, lots of sleep!!!!
