Think Bike? Why?

#1
The government's edict to "Think Bike" to try to stop bikers being seriously injured or killed in accidents with cars grips my shit. If bikers started thinking about other road users, there would be fewer accidents.

How many times have you been on a dual carriageway or motorway in the overtaking lanes going at a reasonable speed when some fuxxwit comes hurtling past on your left hand side? Knobbers!

Anyone any views on this matter?

How many times does some fUckwit in a car pull out in front of a bike without looking? Yes, there are some shite bike riders. But they're not the only problem. Both sets of drivers need to pay a bit more attention!

Having passed my motor bike test at age 38 I was surprised to notice that my general driving and hazard perception improved, without the steel box of a car you are pretty vulnerable, however, I agree that there are some bike riders who are perhaps driving/riding outside the limit of their experience. without casting any fingers of blame, the majority are young pups on jixxers.

I have a mate who is a keen biker and keeps going on about "those fcuking idiots who pull out in front of me when I'm doing 150"

1. You are breaking the law by riding at that speed.

2. You were probably a mile away when he started the manoeuvre.

3. You've got brakes haven't you?

Bikers and Cyclists here's a message: You don't own the road, there are other users too.

I'm not too bothered by motorbikes, or, as I like to call them 'organ donor enablers' but cyclists twist my piles!
They dress in that ridiculous lycra and look like a badly stuffed black pudding with a very silly looking plastic frisbee on the head, the ride like they are in a race, and traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, left and right side of roads and any road markers are obstacles that they have to avoid or lose the race.And It is still frowned on to gently nudge the back wheel with ones car.

Car drivers here's a message: That strip of perfectly serviceable tarmac to your left on the motorway is lane 1 and it has been laid for your benefit too.

And your point is? Is lane three reserved for brain dead bikers then? You pay less road tax than me so fcuk orf?

Oh and bikers, That strip of perfectly serviceable tarmac to your left on the motorway is lane 1 and it has been laid for your benefit too.

THANK YOU!!!!!!

There's three lanes on a motorway on average, and the two on the right are for overtaking. When you're done overtaking, p!ss off back to the first lane.

Car drivers - you don't own the road, motorbikes and cyclists have as much right to use the tarmac as you do, they take up less space, don't clog up the traffic and are a lot less polluting.

Actually, I don't think cyclists do have the same right to the road. No tax, no insurance, no licence.
So they get to use the pavement, which is illegal, so the road it is, according to Plod.

Having started this thread, I agree with the comments made so far by Arrsers but would like to stress that I agree that it's not all bikers who think they own the road. Likewise, there are some "tools" in cars who shouldn't be allowed out in a Dinky toy. I've found that many (not all) who drive Chelsea tractors (4x4s in essence) are arrogant twats who like to think those who are in smaller vehicles (including bikes and pedal cycles) should make way for them.

No polution, no cause of congestion, rarely accidents, no damage to the road surface, and no requirement under law to pay any form of tax . . . . . oh, and legally obliged to use the road when going from A to B unless under 16.

And if you weren't hogging the middle lane then we would be able to go in lane 1.... :roll:

bikes are great, car drivers are jealous becuase they wait in rather large queues, normally late for work. I left home today at 8am (normally its 0600am) and i dont ride like a winkle anymore. (the head on crash 2 months ago) put pay to that

Our village is on a good straight road so every Sunday I am serenaded by the roar of about a thousand brainless tw@s thundering through at about 90MPH

Yes I know car drivers do it too but almost every single biker is recklessly and deliberately ingonring a speed limit that is put there for a damn good reason

Fcuk the lot of them - its a 30 zone and a 4 year old kid was very nearly killed by one a couple of weeks ago.

I sincerely hope each and every one of them piles in and is leftdying slowly or at least paralysed - if you endanger my children I want you dead - simple.

The occasional responsible biker comes through at 30 and I have no problem at all with that - but I bet its less than 10% of the cvnts

No, I have to pay for the bike and the car, even though I am clearly not able to use them simultaneously...
