I'll admit to having driven at 60mph in snowy conditions. The dual
carriageway had been cleared and gritted, so I was quite safe zooming
happily down it.

The slip road off, on the other hand...

I have a very clear memory of staring at the roundabout at the bottom of
the slip road as I approached it at 60mph with no traction. I also have
a very clear memory of driving sedately away from it.

You're probably a better driver than you know - that scenario is the
stuff nightmares are made of :-)

What happened in the bit in between, however, is anybody's guess.
Suggestions are welcomed...

Hmmm... this is strange. I have had a similar lack of recollection of
what happened, in the couple of minor crashes I got into on my bike. I
can remember what it was that I most probably did wrong that led to
the crash, but darned if I can recollect the couple of seconds of the
actual crash. Yet most of the people I've chewed the fat with about
accidents are able to recount with split-second precision exactly what
happened and how they reacted to make the best of what was happening.
I'd think it was minor fiction if it wasn't for slow-mo replays of
bike-racing crashes which I've seen on TV, where the rider is
obviously kicking out at the sliding bike, trying to keep it away from
his body (or vice-versa).
Maybe I'm just slow.... :-/

Anyway, shouldn't that be "d00d3773"? Just asking... :-)
