  • Bulgiarian beef stew

    Speeding ey, try slowing down before the turns

    • They don’t have the full story. This is my brother, when he came into the corner there was a deer in the road and trying to avoid hitting it caused him to hit the bridge. Speed and is not the reason he crashed

  • So it’s news when you hurt yourself in a single person accident? No tickets, no real news here. only embarrassing to the person

  • Yes indeed that technique works wonders for avoiding a BAD case of Road Rash, such as was received by this unlucky individual!!!
