    As far as to how many people in the world drive on the left, your statement of 1/3 is inaccurate.



    Chico

    There are 1.4 billion people who live in a india who you seem to have overlooked.  :001:
    I’m talking numbers of individual people who live in Countries who drive on the left not numbers of countries, if you talk population numbers who use imperial measurements it would be too embarrassing for you so I spared you the red face.  :008:  :008:

    K1W1, I think that China's population more than cancels India's. 1,439,323,776 vs 1,380,004,385. I'll spare you the embarrassment. :150:

    “Roughly 30% of the world's countries and territories are LHT nations, comprising about 35% of the global population and roughly one-quarter of the world's roadways.”

    Who knew this would lead to an argument about the population of LHD & RHD countries, got to love forums!

    No updates from the insurer on my bike as yet, but I am enjoying the little NC750X more than I thought I would, what a great, underrated bike!

    One of the downsides of communicating on the internet is that the people interacting can't show intent with visual ques. This can lead to what appears to be an argument but is really banter.
    It's my hope that K1W1 and all that read the exchange understood that. :028:

    This is the description in Wikipedia of a roundabout or as we call them traffic circles:
    Chico

    FWIW:  Here in northern New England it is called a "Rotary" and we sure have a lot of them!  Most in town on slower speed roads, but some at the intersection of major 2 lane high speed roadways too.  Always fun to watch "folks from away" negotiate them.  :138:

    Two and a half months later, the insurance side of things from the accident is STILL not resolved......TWO AND A HALF MONTHS!  :151:

    My insurers, Hastings, who go through an insurance provider called 4th dimension motorcycles, created an estimate for the repairs and deemed the bike repairable, the car driver's insurance then assessed the bike to create their own estimate, this is when things started to stall. 4th Dimension would follow up, and to their credit provide me with a weekly update, but for 3 weeks they had radio silence from the car driver's insurer, then out of the blue they received an update disputing liability, and that's where it is currently stuck.

    4th Dimension has suggested I use my fully comp cover to get the repairs completed quicker, but I have been advised by someone not to do this, can anyone with insurance knowledge please advise?

    It's massively frustrating, as the crash was none of my doing, the driver admitted fault at the scene, but I'm guessing because no one stopped to provide a witness statement his insurers are disputing the matter  :023: :023: :023:
