    How all near misses should be handled....

    This came up on my Facebook feed from a group (or whatever) called "only in Canada". Reading the comments, it looks like they just post stuff and say it happened in Canada.. I've lived in Canada for 48 years and I've never heard anyone wish anyone else a good Memorial Day. (It's Remembrance Day here) Well, Newfoundland celebrates Memorial Day, but if this was in Newfoundland, these guys were both 'from away'. The Newf accent is pretty unique, and neither of these guys have it.

    Anyway...I really liked the video...it shows the best in people rather than the worst. Neither of these guys were trying to have an accident, and both realized and admitted what they did wrong, and will likely remember this near miss and be a better driver AND rider because of it.
    The facebook comments turned into an arguement, then calling each other out becuase someone's grammar wasn't perfect...as expected....But I know we're all better than that here.

    That was so much better to see than some of the many bad biker videos....like this one:

    2006 TW200 "Nibbler", a.k.a. “Mr.Gizmo"
