That is the classic filtering accident you described. I look for junctions and signs too when I filter to try and avoid that. Although if I did get walloped it is likely that it won't do much damage as I don't filter as fast as some either.
We have a few hidden forums and features that you can't see until you login or sign up. We only send about 4 emails a year and never sell anything. We're a global community for bikers who like to record videos. We run this site for fun
