Lots of asshat's on bikes arround here, There was one retard riding arround with 4' of steel pipe sticking out on the right side of his bike to scratch anyones car that got to close. Havent seen the dumb **** for over 6months tho so maybe someone finally found his length of pipe with their car at 100kph.
Way I look at it, 100kph road = bikes should stay over the white line whenever possible, hazard to other road users otherwise. Theres a few arround here that ride single file and make an effort to stay close to the side of the road. When I see them I do my best to give them the entire lane if possible.
Then you have the some who ride arround 10kph dead center of the lane in a 100kph zone, no highvis, no lights and no tail car. Which is great fun to find when you go through a series of bends hauling a few tonnes.
About a year ago I had one idiot woman fall off her bike in the middle of the road, She was riding side by side taking up the entire lane, They were lucky the truck wasnt fitted with ABS brakes cause they would have kicked in, was on the verge of locking up to avoid killing their dumb arses, fairly sharp well cambered left-hand bend, was hauling a trailer with on-coming passenger car, no way I could pull off the road, there was a table drain so no where to go. Still stopped a good 5m away from her. Best bit.. there was a good meter of bitumen on the other side of the white line they could have been using.
Given a choice between hitting 2 idiots on bikes or a family in a car you can be damn sure Im going to choose the idiots and then claim they swerved out in front of me and there was nothing I could do.
And seeing as its the image thead ... heres some retards... Just look at all that space to the left ... Makes you wish for a police car doesnt it.
