An incident on a roundabout on our journey home from Holmfirth confirmed this.
I should have understood that a mini driven by a lady takes precedent approaching a roundabout over two motorcycles already on it!

Hi
on the way back from Southport yesterday several a-hols nearly had me, a few on roundabouts, especially mini-roundabouts, including one who came straight over the top of one to try to kill me

I keep seeing the sentiment expressed by other riders on other forums "Ride as if everyones( usually on Four wheels) is out there is out to kill you".

Now i've thought perhaps in the past this is a over simplification/exaggeration. I don't need to be converted to the merits of defensive driving, its survival.

Of late i'm finding the antics of others on my daily ride and commute particularly annoying,is it age thing?

I'm going for a lie down in a dark room. :'(
