~~Not so Phunny~~

We were rounding a very tight uphill hairpin turn, and two motorcyclists were doing the same but from the opposite direction. The turn was blind for all parties.  The second we all rounded this treacherous stretch, the second rider, driving a bit fast for the turn, veered over the double yellow head-on in into our lane.  Nothing we could do but react quickly as to avoid smashing into the rider.

BOOOOOM......screeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeech............scraaaaaaaaaaatch................. Nothing worse that the sound of metal on the rock side of a mountain as you are slipping off the road and sideswiping it......

Please...riders...please...(and I was a Harley rider for many years)...please...take it slow, assume something big is coming in the opposite direction...and PLEASE...stay in YOUR lane!

Grateful no-one was hurt, all OK. Would have been frightening for you.
