    I like to share some "snapshots" taken from a recent video when I was riding through Sichuan Province.

    The first picture you can see as I was approaching a tunnel behind a biker friend in front.

    You can clearly see the tunnel is one way with the 2 GREEN LIGHTS at the top of the tunnel showing to use bothe lanes.
    Also on the left, you can clearly see the traffic coming towards me with a RED X lights advising you not to use this lane.?
    As I enter the tunnel all looks fine, as I am following my friend in front.

    As the tunnel starts to bend to the left, I move over to the left-hand lane.

    From the first picture, when I notice a car to the time I was level with the car is only 2.5 seconds.

    So all new members and riders here on MCM, Be very very careful.

    On exiting the tunnel I just need to check I was in the right and I didn't see things with the 2 green lights?
    YES, 2 RED X was above the tunnel, clearly advising people NO FUCKING ENTRY.














































    Expect the unexpected all the time when riding in China it will save your life?

    Did you figure out is this guy in a car simply did not obey those red and green lights on the other end, or something wrong (they are out of sync) with this lights?

    Happy he had his lights on hehheheh

    The combined speed was over 160 kmh so didn't have much time

    You need to have quick reflexes in China.
    Yes close call but what people who don't live and ride here,
    this type of shit happens EVERY FUCKING DAY.

    In China this is just situation normal. When you expect road users to have a clue that's when you'll get hurt.

    few years ago at Was picked up in Beijing from company car and the driver was friendly etc. Drove from the airport to town and on the highway he missed an exit so he U-turned on the highway in the SAME LANE and went up the exit ramp, As I was yelling at him to stop he said no cars and its ok. next red light I open the door and get out, take a taxi to the office and went to the Top guy to complain they fired the driver, but I had a lot of locals come up to me saying TIC and you shouldn't have complained he lost his job blah blah... I told them my life is worth more than his job and TIC is not an excuse for putting multiple lives in danger to save 10 mins of driving time...

    I am viewed as a "hard ass"
