    Am i looking at it wrong or are you now on the wrong side of the road, Pat.

    Re: Harley Crash Video

    Brilliant Ian,thanks a million for that! For those wanting to watch it,double tap on the blue bit then tap to open it as it suggests,and tap the play sign. It doesn't do the whole thing justice as it's been reversed when they copied it from a TV,and the camera seems to have cancelled about 70% of the fog,which was much thicker than it looks (Like Pete),but gives a cracking idea of the impact. Shame I didn't have a dashcam myself!

    I was away trying to explain as you typed Steve. It's something to do with the way a phone sees things on a TV. She's actually coming from the back end of the truck,and we meet just right of centre on both cars as we swerved a bit. I'm then chucked to my left and over the hedge,not right as it appears!

    Just watched it in a mirror and it all makes sense.

    Surely that camera was filming towards the back of the lorry.

    Re: Harley Crash Video

    It must've been looking backwards from the wing mirror I think. I only became aware of it when,within minutes of the incident it was circulating round the area. The driver,as they do these days,couldn't wait to get it out there!He knows me distantly as he goes out with a daughter of the couple I bought my house off,which explains why he called me Pat,as I was a bit confused about that one. I'm sure there's lots more pics taken by the girl's friends seen milling round the back of her car. I was sent some by a fireman mate on my phone,which I can't send on because it's so old and crap. He got them off a mate who attended with 'Blue Watch' and said the taker mustn't become known or he could be sacked!

    Re: Harley Crash Video

    Don't think any thought process could possibly have gone into it mate. Her mates were all behind her in their cars and she was possibly showing off. That's the group of girls you can see around her car in one of the pics. On their way to the local grammar school,probably all on the phones to each other,texting from the moment they left home,paying no attention to road or weather conditions,and this is the result!

    He's NI's No1 stuntman, better than Wales's No1 stuntman Denzil, he only drove over a roundabout.

    As said by DB; 'f uckin ell'. I'm amazed that little Renault lobbed your Landy over the hedge; 'just like that!' I don't suppose you were yelling 'AIRBORNE' as you flew, were you Pat? Lucky you mate; pleased you're still with us; albeit a bit bruised, bent and battered.

    Hard to believe you could have survived a smack like that Pat. Unbeliveable.

    You can do it with most video convertors, but they only let you flip it and watch it. If you want to download it you have to buy their software. I used this Ian, https://clideo.com/flip-video you can do it and change the file on your YT account.

    Re: Harley Crash Video

    Thanks Don that looks a lot better,and even clearer actually,although it still doesn't do justice to the fog,which was far thicker than it appears on there. I suppose those cameras have some focus enhancing thingy that sees in dark and fog like daylight.
    I think the fact we both swerved very slightly left on impact resulted in me rising up over her sloped bonnet and being tossed into the field,otherwise I may have rode up onto her lap and crushed her! The other piece of luck was the timing,missing the field with all the fence posts,and just passing the telegraph pole before doing the side left. One of those through the passenger window that I ended up laying on would've added complications. I'd also just passed the row of bungalows and a house on the left,which could've spoiled their breakfast if I'd piled through their front wall. It's all in the timing!

    Sorry Dave I'll not be attending Brecon to talk bollocks and stagger about with you,as I have to attend a wedding at the other end of the country,under pain of death,or at least cessation of sexual activities,which could be fatal also!

    nice one, Don. Although my idea of watching it in the mirror works just as well.

    In my cop days had I seen that I would have thought it was a mortuary job. Whoever the other driver was, and anyone who witnessed that will get in their cars very carefully in future. Agree there are no flies on 9 Sqn blokes Pat, but close up you can see where the flies have been. Speedy recovery Pat

    Far outside my skills range I'm afraid Jack! I can't see you saddling up and riding all the way to the wilds of The Ards Peninsula any time soon anyway mate.
