i can see your point bob......  on saturday coming back from trowbridge a large powered motorbike just managed to stay in behind the car he was riding up behind really close to give me time to pass before screaming off at high speed on a blind bend he would have had no chance if there was something coming from t he other direction... i drew in a sharp intake of breatha s i watched him in my rear view mirror overtaking the car he was behind
inpatience kills... he only had to wait a few seconds to get around that corner just past the ham on the bends between  the farm before you get to the trading estate  ::)

Nothing wrong with staying in when it's wet Pat. It's safer in the dry. There are lots more bikers out ATM, which is nice. Always nice to nod to fellow bikers out enjoying the weather than just having people on there own little caccooned boxes who's rather run you off the road than say hi.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

This is a typical comment from a motorcyclist. Not all, but a lot of these fair weather bikers dressed as Power Rangers have no regard for other road users. They ride so close they are practically in your boot, they pull in front of you at traffic lights like they have the right to be at the front and cut you up when they decide to make a left turn. It's no wonder they get knocked off so often. And on top of that when they are stationary and start the engine up, why do they feel the need to rev it to the point where it sounds like a hedge trimmer on speed!

Bob, I don't disagree that there are some idiots on motorbikes, just as there are idiots in cars that tailgate, speed, overtake in stupid places and rev there engines in supermarket car parks.

Sportsbike riders have small willies, which is why they feel the need to fit silly cans and rev the nuts out there GSX-Rs. ;)
