ahem,

Time to take the TTR for a pleasant, tea-time spin through warm, Sunday afternoon Malta.

 

Pootle out of Floriana towards Bombi, sheeesh, the tarmac sure looks polished and slippery !

 

Make way for the casual, Rapid Intervention Unit …

 

Here, insert tales of urban TTR riding daring do before sunset makes way for twilight.

 

Head Homeward, back through illuminated Bombi, sheeesh, the tarmac sure looks polished and slippery !

 

Along the main, St. Anne’s drag, through Floriana, sheeesh, the tarmac sure looks polished and slippery !

 

Take the scenic, down by the waterfront, route around the tip of Valletta towards home, sheeesh, the tarmac sure looks polished and slippery !

 

Night All !

malta.jpgWOW Graham,
Plugged in those coordinates and it took me to the White Tower. Looks like a fun ride and if you look at it from GoogleEarth, it's giving you the "thumbs up". I'll do the same brother. Thanks for sharing!

Tuesday morning Malta ...
Paul-Sky-Pic.jpg

Yamaha rider Paul Sky said;

 

I was involved in this accident this morning and luckily I got out of it unharmed... the cause of the accident was mobile phone use while driving (The driver of the van admitted that he was looking at his phone) I hope this photo and all these comments plus others that are on motorcycle groups and posts of people that shared the photo will make people release that it is DANGEROUS to use their phone wile driving and I hope that it will push the law to take some serious steps maybe one day our roads will be safe again as at the moment it's a huge risk to get from point a to point b!”

Wow Paul - that looked nasty. Glad to hear you are OK.

Coincidentally I was talking with my bro'-in-law yesterday about mobile phones and riding in traffic. He says that he won't sit at the back of a queue of traffic for the very reason that you have demonstrated and he always filters as far forward as he can.

There was a recent motorway accident in the UK involving a lorry driver selecting music on his mobile phone and ploughing into a queue of stationary traffic - he killed a mother and her three daughters cry

The police in the UK are now doing a special push on nabbing drivers using mobile phones (should be a good earner the amount of drivers I see doing it) and it would be good if it had the same stigma as drink driving......

See https://www.facebook.com/michaelhartmp/photos/a.344960105587035.79190.344226585660387/898003206949386/?type=3&theater   - a good message!

Brian

Please note:

The rear-ending didn't happen to me !

The assault was perpetrated upon a Maltese rider named Paul Sky (he's on fb).
