His bike looks heavy! :)

It's still a sad story that we read or see too often that ended well this time.

It's all to do with the high tides and storms they've being having darn sarf ;-)

Seriously, he's got lucky there I think. OAP driver could quite easily have froze and taken him into the wall.
Not one to dwell on

In this case, it may be that wearing a helmet would have resulted in serious injury or death, as the helmet might not have fit underneath the car. Low profile does have its advantages.

Yea, glad things worked out.

But we'll wait and see the insurance report, it will be much more than cuts and bruises.

Hypothetical statement by the driver: "He came out of nowhere"
