    Did she fall off on the DunRun? I'm sure I saw that bike down and a bunch of riders hanging about.

  • she did the dunwich, don't know about falling.

    JimBilly will prob have more info for us.

  • Damn! Hope she is ok.

  • jumps red light and is totaly trashed by oncoming car......

    RLJ is not a safe trick.

    hope she is all right ......

    • infinity.
  • **RLJ is not a safe trick.
    **

    • infinity.

    Not the time or place matey.

  • she did the dunwich, don't know about falling.

    JimBilly will prob have more info for us.

    I heard about this at the foundry, I dont know if it was Amy. I also dont know why I would know? I have tried to call her and it just go's to answer phone.
    Hope its not her, but who ever it is I hope they are OK.

    Edit: Just read eyebrows post and think I got it wrong. I dont think she came off on the Dunwich.

  • i just knew you know her.
    sorry.
    my mistake.
    thought you might know something we/i didn't.
    sorry jimbilly.

  • Not the time or place matey.

    with all the best will in the world, i hope she's ok. but with all due respect i think this is exactly the time to remind people to be safe.

  • i just knew you know her.
    sorry.

    sorry jimbilly.

    Thats OK dude.

  • hillbilly, have you texted her too? let us know if you get a response

    edit. I'll sms her now

  • just heard from her. It **was **amy and she's not in too bad a shape.

  • That's good to hear. It didn't sound too good last night.

  • Good to know she's ok. How's the bike?

  • Yikes, hope she is ok.

  • Glad shes ok.

  • with all the best will in the world, i hope she's ok. but with all due respect i think this is exactly the time to remind people to be safe.

    Now that we know Amy is ok I will explain. You use the term RLJ so you must be familiar with the debate. One point, often made, is that jumping red lights is not necessarily the same as dangerous riding. It seemed to me that, while people were still waiting to hear if someone they know was in a bad way, it was not the time to start the RLJ discussion going again. And if this had proved to be a case where jumping a light had been dangerous (and we still don't know that) what is the point of implying, within a few minutes of the thread starting, that the rider was at fault? Had Amy been seriously injured, or worse, your contribution would have been quite offensively ill judged. It just sounded tactless, insensitive and out of place.
    Also I don't really think any of us need 'reminding' to ride safe.
    When accidents are reported on here I think it's best not to enter in to any speculation or discussion of general safety issues until the facts are known.
    Iam sure you meant well and are sincere in your concern but I stand by what I said.

  • Well said.

  • i think badtmy was stating what we all wish for each other, to ride safe...
    perhaps ill put.

  • glad to hear she's ok.

  • yeah, never mind about the bike, that shits easy to replace!

  • I guess you don't have that over here? In Oz, as soon as you hear about a rider crashing (and they're ok) you ask about the bike. It's the done thing. A bit of a laugh to make the injured rider smile or whatever.

  • on no, we do have that over here!

    but usually in MTB circles, as you may imagine.

    crashes involving the highway and motor vehicles tend to be given a little more room first
