I believe she was on a crossing with the green light in her favour but the Special Escort rider has the power to go through red lights etc.
I suspect he is in trouble. He surely has to give way to other road users exercising their right, in this case using a crossing on the green light in her favour.

It begs the question why bmw can’t or don’t want to overcome  the problem.
Could it be the case that they want the sale of radiators to continue.

For what it's worth I have a fenda extenda and have had to replace my radiator every 3 to 4 years. I have never had a cooling problem and it is always at the replacement plugs service that my dealer tells me the old rad is blocked and needs replacement. I am on my third radiator and expect to have to replace it in 2020. Hmm, those K1600 GT's are looking better and better!!

Take a good look at the K1600GT. IMO it will suffer from exactly the same problem.

I wonder who will be found at fault in the Special Escort Group accident. I suspect the old lady stepped out unexpectedly. Remember these are highly trained riders. Also nobody has mentioned how the rider is and if he was hurt at all.

I don’t believe that the term’right of way’ exists although it’s often quoted, my understanding is you have priority ‘IF’ the way forward is clear however at some point you need to progress and as Rich rightly points out we don’t know all the facts but there is nothing I read that claims the woman looked before crossing, and to my way of thinking an ‘established ‘ pedestrian is one who started crossing when it was correct to do so but a change of lights has given priority back to the traffic before the pedestrian has finished crossing, to step into moving traffic without looking is exactly that, maybe IMO, a better judgment would be to tell her she could have had a collision with a lorry with the associated outcome.

The first failed attempt at a longer mudguard was a firm who were happy to copy an original and extend it but then disappeared off the radar.

The latest outfit seem to only make small parts and don't like 'copying' the OEM design. They were happy to produce a longer fender extender, both above and below the 'normal' height, so that it reinforced the stock guard as well as giving clearance to tje tyre etc. etc.

I didn't think there would be too many takers for such an untried add-on and we know how relatively fragile the stock guard is up in the corners.

I think (from a long discussion with a foot patrol officer in Buckingham late one wet and very windy midnight many years ago) that 'established on the highway' as he called it, refers to someone who is walking 'in the road' as opposed to someone who has just 'stepped into the road'.

He was actually standing on the edge of the kerb as I drove through the old town and he wandered across in front of me despite seeing me approaching! The ensuing conversation was...interesting ::)
