A Jurien Bay man says he was disappointed nobody stopped to help when a car ran his motorbike off the road last weekend.

David Seinor, 53, was riding with a group of friends when the accident happened on Old Yanchep Road, near Wanneroo, about 4.30pm on Sunday.

He said he was lucky not to have been seriously injured.

“I came around a 70km/h corner, and the car just shot over the centre island,” Mr Seinor said.

“Because I was committed to going my line, I had to readjust and it ran me off the road.

“There’s not a lot of shoulder there, and as soon as my bike went in the sand, I fell off.”

Mr Seinor said he was travelling about 60km/h at the time, but suffered just a few bruises.

“It could have been a whole heap worse,” he said.

Mr Seinor was on his way to Wanneroo Raceway to attend the 50th anniversary Golden Jubilee Race Meet.

He said he had encountered a number of impatient drivers during the return trip.

“We were in a 100km/h zone, doing the speed limit, and people were still passing,” he said.

“Most people have got cruise control nowadays, so there’s no excuse for speeding.”
