    no offense, but you either drive exceptionally slow, or are exceptionally lucky. because stuff happens and sometimes people crash into you.

    Had my first go at sliding tonight.
    I guess I'm alright given that it was a first go, and the car I tried it in is shit for it, and the place was terrible.
    It was good fun though.
    I need a RWD....

    Sorry but that's definitely not true at all - there is always something you can do to avoid an accident. Especially on a bike it doesn't matter who's fault it is- if you're involved in an accident chances are you'll be the one going to Hospital.

    You either put yourself in a bad spot, or you weren't paying attention. All of which is avoidable.

    I agree, its all to do with defensive driving and paying attention on the road. I've avoided quite a few potential accidents myself because I always try to put myself in a position on the road which allows me to turn away from a potential collision if it comes to that.

    fair enough, after i posted I thought I should have said exceptionally cautious instead of slow.

    I was stopped, focusing on the heavy turning traffic ahead of me at a "Turn left at any time with care" sign and I watched someone (while checking rear view mirror briefly) run into the rear of my car at somewhere between 80-100km/h. Could you please explain how that was avoidable?

    Please enlighten me oh holy one, doer of no wrongs, avoider of accidents.

    Kyon, How's being run up the arse while sitting in traffic avoidable? Staying home perhaps? Or maybe just catching public transport?...

    I think what the guy meant to say was, you can decrease your chances of getting into an accident.

    Obviously there are instances you can't avoid, you guys take it to literally here.
