This shocking pothole is the latest to be exposed in MCN’s search for Britain’s worst.

It measures five feet by two and is over sixe inches deep. Located on a well-used 60mph road, it could prove deadly to an unsuspecting motorcyclist.

MCN reader Alex Witham, 20, was thrown out of the seat of his Suzuki SV650 after hitting the hole at just 20mph on February 27.

The insurance manager from Norwich said: “I’d just come around a bend when I saw it. There was a truck on the opposite side of the road so I didn’t have anywhere to go except through it.

“It bent the front wheel and forks and threw me out of the seat. I landed on the tank but somehow managed to stay on the bike.”

If the pot holes on in britan are this big, how big could they possibly be where ever you are? I know in Canada pot holes get HUGE! and retardly deep during winter time, esp with the snow plows ripping apart the road.

How many pot holes have you guys hit?

Can you find a bigger pothole than this? - | Motorcycle News | Bike News | Motorbike Videos | MCN

That is just horrible.

I can understand if it's a small side street that not much people use. But if this is on a main road or a road thats frequently used, thats a major problem. I heard of this one city that has a hot-line setup for reporting pot holes, thats not a bad idea. I've seen pot holes grow from something small and easy to patch to huge holes/cracks that give you no choice but to change your route.
