This is a very dangerous junction as motorist have to wait a while for traffic flow to stop to allow moving on. More so often they just chance it and pull out on oncoming traffic. As a motorcyclist and car driver as I have had many off the older generation just pull out in front of me (whilst meeting the speed limit or less!) One of these resulting in one of my bikes being a write off after an elderly gentleman did not see me when pulling out of a parking bay along the sea front! We really do need harder re tests for over 70s. After speaking with my granddad who is 70+ he also agrees with me on this as his vision has got worse with age therefore responsibly hanging up his driving gloves and no longer using a car. I am not jumping to conclusions on this story as there may have been speed involved on the bikers behalf. Yet this is a reasonably straight part of road making the biker very visible and I am sure well heard as my bikes are. I hope the police do find out the exact information needed and the biker involved makes a full recovery.

Not really, i think it depends on the angle of impact, but in any bike v car accident, the bike might as well be made out of chocolate.

It's not fair for anyone to judge this, none of you know the facts only ones who do are the people that are with him at the hospital I'm one of them, more importantly his family and friends. All you need to be aware of is this is a person, whom you all know nothing about and has been extremely hurt.. Think of your sons partners nephews and fathers before you decide to throw away little comments like this.

If you care to study the photo a little more clearly you will see the front forks have sheared off directly beneath the lower steering yoke. Also the front wheel rim is badly dented. This can only happen through an extreme impact, not a side one or simply falling off. Also the left hand side of the bike is largely undamaged. I would hazard a guess the 80 year old car driver should not be on the road. It doesn't take a genius to work out that the car driver was heading East along Eastern Ave and turned into Bournemouth park road and didn't see the biker heading West. Result, old **** get a few points and the biker gets horribly injured. Hope you recover fully Olly! I expect the usual biker related post negatives!!!

It is not for you to judge he was doing the correct speed limit the police have confirmed it, also some car drivers are appalling on the roads and actually cause things like this to happen. I'm not saying that in this scenario because it's not fair to judge that and if I can see that and I'm one of ollys closest friends then I can't understand how you think a comment like that is appropriate. Considering he could've died, he also had right of way might I add.

Although I know you are a fully qualified troll and therefore feel qualified to insult and denigrate whomsoever you wish. Do try to insert a few facts in your drivel from time to time. there are medical tests in place for drivers over the age of 70 but please, for your silly sake as well as everybody on the road, look at the facts before releasing your malevolence on one particullar section of the English people. Fortunately, old codgers tend to drive a little slower than all other sectors of the driving community. But, if you want to make the roads safer you would have to remove all drivers under 35, All drivers of Range Rovers, Audi's and even BMW's for in those sections lie the most reactionary drivers of all, who clock up more accidents per year than anyone else.
Motorcyclists are, I have found, among the best drivers on the road but even they make mistakes of judgement. Look at "Betterlaws" lead comment. He attacks older drivers but then admits to being surprised when one pulls out right in front of him! I keep half an eye on my mirror as motorcyclists approach me on a busy road, and move over to make room for them to pass when I can. I am old, but apart from a couple more old 'uns You never see the one thing that made people better drivers. Common Courtesy!
Finally, having been a motorcyclist myself, I did learn, as all motorcyclists do, to keep an eye on the road surface. This is, I think, one of the reasons why many car drivers do not see arrows etc. on the road surface and end up going the wrong way in car parks. I think people would drive a lot more safely if they were made to ride a motorcycle for five years before being allowed near a car!

Let us all hope that this young man is up and about soon and that he recovers fully from his accident. My thoughts go out to his family and freinds as well.

I think when they had Traffic Lights it was safer, I have come from the Sutton Rd going towards Southend to turn right & traffic from the right have to make a dash out so to miss other traffic from their right and so on, I know lights can cause some delays but still a lot safer with maybe filter lights.
I bet someone will disagree with me but I'm only saying that the flipping roundabout is really dangerous in my mind, plus if you have to pull out quickly someone will sound their horn at you and not give you the chance to get out. Please don't shout at me for my opinion LOL

Personally as one of ollys close friends id love to say a huge thankyou to all who have wished him well, and if also like to say that I hope this elderly man is also ok
I expect there is a lot of things in this world, you don't understand, but then it would seem that your ignorance is, for you, bliss.

And thank god the man is uninjured, like I keep saying it is for no one to judge. ESPECIALLY the people that don't even know who both drivers are, it's infuriating this world we live in where all that matters to some people is putting negative rude disgusting comments, when a boy is currently in hospital in agony and an elderly man has probably had the shock of his life.

A Dad says...

Unfortunately the assumption is always a young lad on a motorbike would be at fault, however when I was 16 and riding my motorbike a car parked on the left of a dual carriageway just suddenly pulled out and did a 90 degree turn to a gap in the centre reservation. I had no chance and hit the car dead centre going over the top.
I was fortunately uninjured but there were no witnesses and the driver blamed me (there was also a passenger) and my insurance paid out. I subsequently found out that the driver was a policeman.
