    More than likely Diesel.Have you ever noticed little droplets of fuel dripping out of exhausts when vehicles are stationary?Diesel is lethal as like Black ice it's almost invisible on Tarmac.

    Yep, one thing we hate around here is on topic chat! haha

    Do think it was weird I should have two moments within metres of each other a year apart. Road looked pretty dry so expected some grip.

    If that spot gets lots of traffic and lots of HGV/PSV standing then over time a build up of Diesel/Oil will be inevitable.Although it's just as likely to be a coincidence!
    Years ago I crashed three motorbikes on the same bend on the A57 Snake Pass.Almost identical crashes within feet of each other over 18 or so months.My mate said the corner was my nemesis and had gotten inside my head.
    Owt's possible!

    Yeah, can see that with your bend.

    This spot has lots of traffic lights, vehicles of all sizes sitting around.

    Just for my own peace of mind I'd put it down to road-crap.If it happens again however I'd then avoid that stretch

    I did take it with more vigour than I would normally this time of year as had a van coming up behind and wanted to take road position. Will chill it through there until the sun returns.
