    Was driving away and the rain was coming down earlier. Lights went orange so I slowed down and stopped.

    Then saw in my rear view mirror typical motorcycle idiot was driving too close, jammed on his breaks and wallop - bike into a skid and him on the ground.

    Got out to see if he was ok, along with a few others, seemed a bit shaken up but sound. daft idiot not aware of weather conditions.

    Later I was thinking, should I have waited for police or something? Then again what for? Its not a collision, just a daft idiot.

    You only need to contact the police if there's injuries IIRC, sounds like he expected you to go through the amber light and was wrong.

    pretty much, if it wasnt wet conditions he wouldnt have skidded but he was too close anyway

    Too much front brake and not enough back he needs more training.

    was watching him in the mirror, if he used his feet was no need for the bike to go over either, harsh to say but was kind of comical

    Putting your foot down if your falling off a motorcycle at 30mph wont result in you not falling off. You may loose your foot but it wont save your fall.

    I notice lots of riders (mainly on L plates) when cornering having their inside foot skimming the ground. not the thing to do if you value your feet.

    Did he hit a pothole with a cement filled hessian sack wedged in it by any chance?

    It kind of skidded without going down, then at the last moment when it was more or less stopped it toppled over. Was like watching in slow motion.

    Surely he could have prevented that? Not a motorcyclist myself, but seemed avoidable.

    Once you lose the centre of gravity, it’s very difficult to keep a bike upright, even a relatively light one.

    So, this typical idiot, jammed his brakes on and skidded, but didn't hit you. He wasn't riding too close then.

    sounds like the lad's lucky and hopefully this'll be the wake up call he needs to pay more attention to weather conditions there mate

    You called him an idiot 3 times in the first post so no point holding back now
    If he's riding in this weather its obviously his transport for work,maybe a newbie and he's learnt one of ridings lessons.You may notice they have two wheels.Car drivers can drive like "idiots " all day and hoy the brakes on with little consequence.

    Just down to experience and knowing how the bike will react,like i say its stuff car drivers don't even have to think about.I've seen people fall off virtually standing still in dry conditions because when you grab a decent front brake on a bike at slow speed you can stop in two inches and your feet are still sitting on the pegs

    If you didn't exchange names and addresses I think you need to report it to the police within 24 hours. Even if he didn't hit you you are indirectly involved in road traffic accident due to the presence of your vehicle. If he was injured, even slightly, then I think you need to exchange insurance details also.
