Glad to hear you're largely unscathed. And thanks for posting, I'll be extra vigilant today (on my new NSR250!) after reading this. I of course avoid overtaking near junctions but some entrances are hard to spot until you're right there. 

Hope the aches fade quickly!

Happy to hear your okay dude. I nearly had a similar off last week with a van making a right hand turn while I was filtering. I've started to reduce my speed while filtering to allow me to stop quickly. 

I agree with what your saying here 100% by the way. I havnt had any accidents with other road users but I have had a couple involving me and my lonesome ... The cosmetic damage never really bothered me as any of bikes were never really cosmetically pleasing (who cares right?). Its one of the massive advantages of owning a bike worth peanuts! That and nobody ever wants to steal it!

Good idea.

Actually, I've been filtering this afternoon, despite the fact that it's not really comme il faut in DK. I had just that same thought; "Not too fast - you lose the opportunity to react in time". But I did it - who wants to get stuck in a mile-long queue on the ringvej around Århus?

Helloooo - have a nice trip home. Never mind little old me, effortlessly passing you by...

Good result Lee and glad you're okay. I've had a couple of instances lately of not seeing indicators - some new LED types can be very hard to discern if the direction of the sunlight is "wrong". Oh and don't reproach yourself too sternly - as you said, this was an entry, not a junction. Might be time for a Fuel can w/out baffle though. ; - )

This is my first year with CN and I'm impressed so far..... Although, the people in the call centre aren't too sharp. But yeah, it's sorted and most importantly, I have a shinier CB :-)

Aye, I keep thinking about a noisier zorst. I also think about my neighbours, but they're into football, so bollocks to 'em!

Yeah it is a bit anti-social, worse still though is that the beans you give the 500 it would tbh probably do your head in. I don't get up near 8k very often but at those rpm and beyond the Fuel w/out baffle is braying its arse off. It's pretty funny to hear the bike bellowing its heart out on both lungs but man - tinnitus city come bedtime.
