Yep have been. Given form to fill in and already told that without a licence plate they aren't likely to do much, and it's pretty likely the cameras aren't even on. Give it a go though was her advice, so I will.

Cheers :D Confusing stories with no visual aids are always annoying so I figured I'd take the time to make it a bit more interesting and understandable. Any requests?

This is basically a photo of what happened so I will probably take it to the police when I go.

Graphics of this calibre shouldn't be left at the bottom of the page. Very good.

From your wonderful artwork I can see why the driver didn't see you, no wing mirrors!

Terrible driving but great bike handling, glad you're fine.

I dunno, it's quite a livery kind of colour.

Glad you're OK. Scary.

What is definitely reportable, and unforgivable, is the driver sticking his tongue out at you.

If the darker area is the central reservation, then shirley you're riding the wrong way down a dual carriageway.

This was after we'd both stopped, I was on the left originally :roll: Had to walk over to the right to talk to the driver, for all the good that did.

Handed my form back in to the police, with diagrams, streetview pic, circled area on map. Hope they try to look at the cctv at least and not just write it off.

Ok having taken feedback on board I have made some amendments.

I am now a bit taller, the lorry has some livery and a mirror, and the party at fault is a lot clearer.

Bike's clearly got no brakes. You're one of them brakeless fixed riders, aren't you?
Sometimes parts break. Sometimes you crash. Sometimes it’s your fault.
