Thought it best to share today’s experience and caution others. Please please please check and recheck any towbar mounted bike racks. Even though we triple checked before setting off, ours decided to part company today whilst travelling at 60mph on the M1. Standing helpless at the side of the motorway waiting for the inevitable accident is not a nice feeling. It ended up straddling lanes one and two and most people avoided it but unfortunately one car strike pushed it into another cars path. Then I was on the carriageway warning other motorists not to hit the car with the bikes underneath it that had stopped half way into lane one. A big thanks to Highways England for their assistance and if you were caught up in the tailbacks of a closed M1 Northbound at Woodall services this morning, my apologies. Then to top it all off the battery died whilst we were on the hard shoulder dealing with the aftermath of insurance details so it’s thanks again to the AA and no thanks to Moll batteries.
