800XC less than 1 min from home.
1 x Prius type car, almost certainly Uber/Taxi type.
Clear in front of me, but line of cars coming the other way.
Prius pulls out from R/H side road  after last car passes on the oncoming, turning into my side/direction.
I Panic pull on the brakes, and felt the brakes pulsing.
Bike slows down rapidly, with no drama, Prius sees me and brakes hard.
Got to admit its an option I like..

Bastards.....

The abs on tigers works well off road too.

Bloody Prius !! That's what happens when you start running cars on batteries instead of good raw fuel !!  :icon_wink:

Safe Riding.

Yeah, it's not bastard's to Triumph, it's bastard's to the miriad of self employed taxi drivers, who's interpretation of the highway code is interesting, to say the least. I actually had a Prius for 6 months as a company car. I'm not kidding, I've had people try to get into my car just assuming I'm a Taxi of some sort. I've been in a queue of more than 7 Priui just travelling between Harrow and Wembley....sooo many poor drivers around here.
