    You were commuting.
    There is a good chance the car that hit you was commuting, too.
    Folks tend to commute on the same roads at about the same time of day.
    I see a lot of the same people in about the same places every day I commute.
    There is a good chance you will see this guy again.
    Do with this information what you will.

    FWIW, IMO the GoPro isn't the best camera on the market, they just spend the most on marketing. I currently am running this camera and I really like it:

    http://www.techmoan.com/blog/2013/11...nd-so-far.html

    I've owned a GoPro Hero3 white, a Sony ActionCam, a Contour Roam, a pair of RD32II and several generic Chinese cameras ranging from keychain cameras to big honking waterproof tanks.

    This new one is my favorite by far of all of them. The only thing to really be gained by going with GoPro is that if you go all the way to the Black (for $400), you'll get better low light performance. But for $132 shipped with a waterproof case, a bunch of mounting options and a remote control, this thing is hard to beat. As a bonus it takes standard Nokia cell phone batteries so you can buy them for about $3, and they last over 2 hours of shooting each.
    Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.

    Plus I think he is using us to practice his english.
    If so then I was too harsh on his "stay off the vehicle roads". But he doesn't have it in his profile.

    firstsporthub, here we ride on the same roads as other vehicles with some few exceptions. When people yell at us to get off the road it is aberrant behavior, so we do not react positively to the suggestion.

    I had the same reaction as you. But something seemed odd, so I looked up some of his early post and saw he was from Singapore. I really wish everyone would put their current location down, it does add context.

    If I am practicing my GRAMMER here then why are you replying to it ? wouldn't you be wasting your time to reply something you don't understand ?

    When you are pointing a finger at someone.... a few of your fingers are pointing at yourself.
    You always have a choice in everything you do, unless you said NO to yourself.

    He was defending you, not mocking you. In other words, what you say may be perfectly reasonably in Singapore and your intent may be different than it appears due to the language difference.

    I don't even know what we're talking about! :0




    (I don't really need an explanation, though. Language barrier. I get it.)
